For many years, Bosch Esitronic workshop software has been part of the standard equipment of multi-brand workshops in particular. In Europe, one out of three independent workshops uses this powerful and well-proven software. The present version Esitronic 2.0 offers automotive workshops a comprehensive package for efficient and professional repair of almost all vehicles on the European market. This comprehensive package consists of diagnostic data, repair instructions, maintenance schedules and circuit diagrams as well as the “experience-based repair – known error patterns” (EBR) module. Since the data volume of Esitronic has risen due to the growing number of electronic control units and components for comfort and safety electronics as well as for modern driver assistance systems, Bosch now also offers Esitronic 2.0 Online, an online version which can be used in parallel. It eases the search and provides context-related information. Thanks to the free text search and the document preview, users will find required information both easily and quickly.

Access to any information within seconds

Together with the Esitronic update 2018/2, all users will also receive the new Esitronic 2.0 Online version as a free-of-charge upgrade. In future, they will thus be able to switch between the present version and the new online version at the click of a mouse – if connected to the internet. Both versions – off- and online – can be used in parallel and on the same device. As most users know from the “google” search, direct access to any relevant information will be provided by means of the free text search of Esitronic 2.0 Online. The search terms can, for instance, include specific symptoms, a certain error code or specific vehicle components. As soon as the user types in the first letter of the term searched for, matching search terms are proposed. Once the search term has been found, the search results are listed according to their relevance and displayed with short summaries. Clicking onto the result, a preview of the document found is provided. By means of additional search terms such as make, type of engine or component, the search results can be filtered even more specifically. Doing so, users can even switch between the different Esitronic information types. In this manner, any required information can be found within seconds. In addition, the context menus concerning individual vehicle components also provide the users with matching additional information such as installation position, circuit diagrams or nominal values. Furthermore, Esitronic 2.0 Online also includes the “experience-based repair – known fixes” (EBR) module thus allowing support via Bosch expertise and the description of current fault cases – available around the clock.

Quick loading even with low internet bandwidth

Using intelligent caching strategies and particularly quick servers, the developers of Esitronic optimized the loading times in such a way as to quickly provide information searched for – without any waiting time. Documents are loaded in the blink of an eye. This allows even users with low internet bandwidth to use Esitronic 2.0 Online in a comfortable manner. In addition, the new Esitronic 2.0 Online also features an intuitive remake of the information types troubleshooting (SIS), maintenance schedules (M), convenient circuit diagrams (P), technical service bulletins (TSB) and experience-based repair (EBR).
