ESI[tronic] 2.0 Online: now with manufacturer information
Repair and maintenance information from the manufacturer has been integrated in diagnostic software ESI[tronic] 2.0 Online since May.
All repair and maintenance information from a single source
With diagnostic data, troubleshooting instructions, maintenance plans as well as installation and removal instructions for individual components, the ESI[tronic] 2.0 Online software solution supports workshop employees during repair and maintenance work. Multi-brand workshops can thus carry out work on different vehicle types and makes efficiently and in high quality.
In the future, Bosch will obtain the necessary and existing repair and maintenance information directly from the different vehicle manufacturers through more detailed information and additionally integrate it into ESI[tronic]. This gives workshops access to all important repair and maintenance information – all from a single source.
Advantages of ESI[tronic] 2.0 Online with manufacturer data for the workshop
- Combines ESI[tronic] diagnostic functions with repair and maintenance information from manufacturer sources
- Increased data quality and more accurate information through integration of manufacturer information
- Always up to date thanks to repair and maintenance data from manufacturer sources
Step-by-step integration since May 2021
Original manufacturer information, for example
- component location information
- installation and removal instructions
- 3D illustrations
- photos of components and allocations to individual vehicle types
is now transferred directly to ESI[tronic] 2.0 Online. This is also planned for circuit diagrams on a manufacturer basis. Since May 2021, this new content has been gradually integrated into the ESI[tronic] and can be used by workshops with licences for the info type SIS (troubleshooting instructions) and in the future also for the info type P (circuit diagrams) in the online mode of ESI[tronic] 2.0.
More detailed information, faster availability
Direct transfer of detailed information modified by Bosch for integration further improves the data quality of ESI[tronic] and in many cases the information is then available more quickly and directly in ESI[tronic] 2.0 Online.
The precise allocation of data and repair instructions to the respective customer vehicle is also improved. ESI[tronic] then provides specific information beyond the model series and matching the vehicle.
Manufacturer coverage is expanded
With information on the Mercedes-Benz GLC and B models, the integration of the manufacturer data into ESI[tronic] was kicked off. Since May, models from BMW, Fiat and Ford have followed, with other manufacturers to follow in the course of the year. As the EU regulation on the provision of data refers to the EU economic area, there may be country restrictions imposed by manufacturers when integrating the manufacturer information into ESI[tronic]. The existing as well as other repair and maintenance information will continue to be developed by Bosch and will be available worldwide without any restrictions as before.
