Drive online sales with a web-based tyre size scanner solution

If some car owners know their way around their vehicle, most of them lack knowledge when it comes to tyres. That’s why they usually rely on their tyre dealer to suggest replacement when times come to purchase new tyres.

At the same time, customer behaviour has changed and they are now buying a lot of items online. Tyres make no exception. But with a lack of knowledge and the cost of a tyre set, purchasing tyres online can be a painful experience.


How a web-based tyre size scanner streamlines online buying

When customers need to type in the tyre size information into an e-commerce website, there are major concerns to take into consideration:

  • If a typing error is made, the product chosen might not fit the vehicle, and need to be replaced.
  • It requires extra care and attention from the customer, who might need to go back and forth to its tyres just to verify everything is right.

Even when typing the tyre size code, it can be stressful for customers that will always fear to get something wrong.

Thankfully, a technological solution exists to automate this process and offer peace of mind to customers. A tyre size scanner uses OCR (Optical Character Recognition) to get the information directly from the tyre sidewall, and digitise it instantly. Anyline’s tyre size scanner can be used on every smartphone running on Android or iOS.

And the benefits of a tyre size scanner can be enormous for tyre:

  • It’s very fast – customers can scan their tyre size code in a matter of seconds.
  • It’s accurate – a tyre scanner won’t make any mistakes. The Tyre size code is scanned precisely and can be verified before validation.
