MAHLE: digital boost in Aftermarket maximizes customer benefits

With the digital solutions from MAHLE Aftermarket, service and diagnostic tools are interconnected and always up-to-date. The CustomerCare portal, available from mid-2019, and the well-established online catalog ensure instantaneous identification and ordering of the correct parts as well as direct contact between the wholesaler, the workshop, and MAHLE.

MAHLE TechPRO® Digital ADAS calibration tool for driver assistance systems wins the KRAFTHAND Technology Award

Workshops therefore no longer need to keep numerous tables for the different vehicle models: the tables for new types of vehicles are automatically stored when the system is updated. This also impressed the KRAFTHAND specialist jury, who rewarded the innovation from the workshop solution provider MAHLE with first place in the Krafthand Technology Award.
