FIELD SERVICE MANAGEMENT CHALLENGES FOR AUTO PARTS SUPPLIERS AND INSTALLERS According to the RAC Foundation, there are almost 37 million motor vehicles and trailers in the UK. Delivery vans are the fastest growing category of vehicle, and there are already around 327,000 plug-in vehicles (Hybrid and Electric). Almost 20% of job adverts require applicants to drive, and going in to 2022, the average age of a car in the UK was 8.8 years. A huge market for maintenance and repair. While the new car sales market in the UK is experiencing stagnation, the aftersales business continues to offer great potential. The web-based supply business in the motor vehicle aftermarket is booming.
When workshops carry out repairs on customer vehicles, high demands are made on flexibility, speed, and traceability. Customers expect repairs to be carried out on their terms. The right spare parts for installation are usually needed on the same day or the following day at the latest. For this purpose, car parts dealers offer a corresponding delivery service. In addition to traditional passenger car spare parts, automotive companies generally offer additional services such as workshop equipment and tools, including related maintenance, installation and repair work, as well as spare parts for scooters, motorcycles, and pedelecs.
Service, fitting, and repair calls as well as spare part deliveries can be optimised by using dynamic appointment and route scheduling from FLS. Customers such as PV Automotive and Nova Motors have helped to establish FLS software as a competitive edge in the auto-parts sector.
