In no uncertain terms, data and various digital services can enhance entire departments across an organization—especially in the automotive industry (thanks to digital transformation). Incorporating real-time data can strengthen all processes, from planning to sales to logistics to after-sales service. But to get to that point, data collection must be secure, accurate, and, most importantly, on time. All of these masters need to be served while also maintaining privacy. It’s effort, to be sure, but it also pays dividends in more ways than one. However, careful implementation of digital transformation is required before you can enjoy its benefits. What follows is a step-by-step guide that you can follow to do exactly that.

Step 1: Modifying How You Collect Data

Modifying How You Collect Data including tire age, specifications, and more, from any device with an active Internet connection. This is one of the purposes for which the Anyline Tire Scanner was built. VIN Scanning. Solutions like Anyline remove all of the frustration of manually recording information. 17-digit VINs can be scanned from windshields, windows, bodywork, and even printed documents—all using the mobile phones that your workers are already comfortable with. License Plate Scanning Anyline in particular gives users the ability to scan not only United States license plates, but ones from Europe and Africa as well. This ensures both quality and accuracy for workers, especially those on the go. Mobile Tire Tread Reading. Anyline employs cutting-edge AI and computer vision to accurately measure qualities such as tire tread depth from any mobile device.


Step 3: Transparent Cost Management

Making customer invoices transparent and understandable is a final requirement for any digital transformation of this scale. Because solutions like Anyline can be integrated into both workforce and consumer-facing apps with our API, technicians and customers alike can start scanning tires without training. This opens up new possibilities, like:

Easier tracking of vehicle maintenance

Because technicians and customers can scan tires, customers can track everything a mechanic does while maintaining their car. This makes the whole process easier to understand.

Buying tires online

You can let customers scan their own tires at home by incorporating a tire size scanner into your already-existing website or app. This allows them to easily do their research before purchasing to make sure they’re getting the best deal that is 100% fit for their specific car.



Step 4: How can Anyline be integrated?

Overall, Anyline’s data capture technology is simple to incorporate into your current program or mobile application, enabling employees to use it on all of their personal gadgets. That way, tire retail shop owners can not only reduce investment costs but ownership costs as well. They can allow their employees to work smarter, not harder, along the way. The Anyline SDK allows you to start optimizing your data collection process within hours through industry-leading technology. It’s also backed up by hands-on support from customer service teams who are ready and waiting to help.

In the end, Anyline hopes to make the process of digital transformation in the automotive industry as easy as humanly possible.
