BOSSES at Hyundai Motor UK have told of their delight at winning the Manufacturer Innovation Award at this year’s Workshop Power Awards for the Workshop Automation system.
The system – formerly Hyundai 360 – is a fully embedded and digital modular system that combines all the key workshop processes into one simple, intuitive procedure, using the latest technologies.
Starting with one of the industry’s quickest online booking systems, with full integration to menu pricing for more than 15,000 maintenance and repair operations, Hyundai Workshop Automation, which also boasts number plate recognition, ensures a seamless customer journey, enhanced transparency, workshop loading and improved customer communication.
Speaking at the awards ceremony, held last week at the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth, Rebecca Chaplin, editor of Workshop Magazine, said: ‘Hyundai’s Workshop Automation system has been winning lots of praise for its simplicity.
‘We know from talking to our readers who use it that the time it saves them is invaluable, and means they can focus on fixing vehicles. While this category was hotly contested, it was clear that the innovative nature of this system was far superior to anything else in contention.’
Nick Tunnell, aftersales director at Hyundai Motor UK, said: ‘Hyundai Motor prides itself on its continuous evolution and innovative spirit, so we are delighted to be recognised for our efforts in creating such a unique solution. We believe that our system is class-leading but, most importantly, is having a positive impact for both our dealer network and customers.’
