Discover the benefits of remote video support for the automotive industry

Video software solutions can bring many benefits to the automotive industry. From inspections to roadside assistance, remote video support can enhance various aspects of how an automotive business operates. Here are 4 of the most popular use cases among our customers.  

Vehicle inspections  

They ensure that the vehicles are safe to operate and comply with regulations. Remote video support can be used in several types of inspections, including:  

  • after damage repair inspections,   
  • mandatory periodical inspections,   
  • imported vehicle inspections,   
  • pre-purchase inspections,   
  • modified and tuned vehicle inspections,   
  • and voluntary inspections.  

By using remote video support, inspections can be conducted without the need for physical presence, which can save time and reduce costs. The technician can guide the vehicle owner on how to perform the inspection, while also providing visual aids and real-time feedback.
