Once the vehicle is at the dealership, latest technology enables the system to extract vehicle data through the smart key reader. The vehicle is received at the Service Consultation Bay where, with the help of advanced BMW Integrated Service Processes Application (ISPA) on an iPad, the service advisor gets instant access to vehicle information and its entire service history. ISPA readily assesses the present status of the vehicle and analyses it to highlights areas that require work. In addition, the service advisor checks the car thoroughly for visible or technical repairs with the help of diagnostics. Within a few minutes, ISPA produces a complete service advice automatically applying the benefits of any service package associated with the vehicle. Supported with the relevant images, the estimate is presented to the customer for his/her approval. The customer is able to check the service advice and take quick, informed decisions. ISPA thus significantly contributes in creating absolute transparency and saving time for the customer.
