(See full press release with screenshots here: CM Android Mobile App Press Release 8-4-11 Final)
We are pleased to announced the launch of ClearMechanic’s free Android mobile application. The Android application allows any Android smartphone owner to take real-time vehicle photos, post them to a dealer or shop web site and feature expert illustrations alongside each photo.
ClearMechanic will launch a free iPhone version of its mobile application in early September.
The launch of ClearMechanic’s Android mobile application is part of the company’s new free program for all dealerships and independent repair shops. Please see the bottom of this press release for screenshots of the new ClearMechanic program. Early deployments of the program include Magnussen’s Toyota of Palo Alto (http://www.toyotapaloalto.com/service-photos.htm) and Fontana Nissan (http://www.fontananissan.com/photos.php).
Dealer and shop personnel who download the ClearMechanic mobile application must first submit a name and repair shop name to receive approval to participate in the free program.
Service centers seeking premium offerings, such as automating e-mails or text messages to customers showing real-time photos, will pay a monthly subscription fee. These premium offerings are optional.
