Plochingen, Germany – Bosch Connected Repair interconnects all the diagnostic devices in the workshop. Thanks to the Connected Repair network, the customer and vehicle data recorded by customer service are immediately available on the workshop devices at every workplace, and do not have to be re-entered. Up to now, workshops wanting to use this network have had to set up and operate a local server and network architecture. Bosch Connected Repair Cloud now makes such a local IT infrastructure unnecessary. Workshop devices and the Esitronic diagnostic software communicate directly with a cloud, in which all data are stored securely and conveniently, and can be retrieved anywhere and anytime. Connected Repair Cloud also means that workshops no longer have to worry about protecting customer data, since Bosch ensures that data are secure in the cloud.

Handling personal data responsibly and in compliance with legal requirements is a top priority for Bosch. For workshops, this means that their staff can focus fully on their day-to-day business, without any need to spend additional time on data protection and security.

From spring 2023, a licensed version of Bosch Connected Repair Cloud will be included in the Esitronic Advanced and Master packages.

Access to all customer and vehicle data at every workplace

On the basis of the data recorded when the vehicle is brought in, Bosch Connected Repair transmits task sheets to workplaces. Connected Repair Cloud then gives all workshop associates direct access to the digital job card and vehicle status. In addition, records of previous repairs and servicing can be retrieved for each customer’s vehicle. Inspection reports, mechanics’ comments, and images are automatically stored on the digital job card. This simplifies work processes and improves efficiency in the workshop. For example, the vehicle only has to be identified once in the system, which saves a lot of time and reduces the risk of manual input errors.

Up to now, Bosch Connected Repair has stored and saved all customer, vehicle, and repair data on a local server in the workshop. In the future, they will have the option of transferring data from their connected devices to Connected Repair Cloud, from where they can be downloaded by workshop mechanics and service staff.

Designed for independent vehicle workshops

In a first step, it will be possible to use Connected Repair Cloud to connect Esitronic diagnostic software and Bosch systems for calibrating driver assistance systems. This will initially make the modified Connected Repair interesting for workshop chains such as windshield repair specialists. Over the course of 2023, further items of Bosch workshop equipment will be integrated with the cloud, and their scope of services continuously extended.
