Pronto Partners with BOLT ON TECHNOLOGY
The National Pronto Association announced today its endorsement of BOLT ON TECHNOLOGY, a leader in the development of innovative software solutions powering the independent automotive repair industry.
BOLT ON, since its founding in 2008, has created more than a dozen software modules which fully integrate with leading shop management systems, saving repair shop technicians, advisors, managers, and owners time through the use of automation.
Pronto has 95 independent wholesale distributors with 251 regional warehouses throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico. This network supports 59,000 service centers.
David Wofford, National Pronto Association Director of Sales and National Accounts, said the Pronto network is the perfect complement to BOLT ON’s products, which are part of the Pronto Smart Choice Advantage. The Pronto Smart Choice Advantage also features a 24-month parts and labor warranty, online training and ASE certification reimbursement, as well as roadside assistance for customers, among other items.
Wofford lauded the partnership with BOLT ON as a way to provide “cutting-edge technology to service centers to make them more productive.”
“The shops are not unlike most companies where they’re always being asked to do more with less personnel,” Wofford said, adding that the company’s mobile technology enables shops to “communicate with the consumers under the consumers terms – which is email and text messaging.”
Frank Dragoni, Director of National Sales & Corporate Partnerships for BOLT ON, said that gaining Pronto’s “stamp of approval” would help increase awareness and ultimately reach of BOLT ON’s automotive software solutions.
“We’re excited about this incredible opportunity to partner with such a remarkable leader in the automotive aftermarket industry,” Dragoni said. “Together we can make Pronto and BOLT ON TECHNOLOGY household names in the auto repair industry.”
