Delphi Showcases Customized Solutions for National Car Tests and Crash Repair Markets & Enhanced Diagnostic Coverage


Delphi’s flexible diagnostic solutions help meet the needs of Ministry of Transportation (MOT) and National Car Tests (NCT) throughout Europe

PARIS, France — At Equip’Auto 2009 Delphi is showcasing a number of its customized versions of its standard Delphi diagnostic platform, including dedicated diagnostic solutions for Ministry of Transport (MOT) & National Car Tests (NCT) in various European countries such as the UK (VOSA), Belgium (GOCA) and Denmark. In all of these cases, Delphi has adapted its diagnostic platforms to satisfy the precise legal requirements of mandatory car tests in each country while still using its standard hardware and communication platforms.

“It has always been our strategy to adapt our software to meet the changing needs of the service and repair market, negating the need for expensive hardware changes or purchases for our customers,” said Lucia Moretti, Vice President, Delphi Product & Service Solutions, EMEA. “This ensures our customers can get the maximum amount of usability and return on their initial investment.”

In addition to the MOT software enhancements, Delphi is launching a Diagnostic Solution specifically for the Crash Repair Markets in conjunction with Thatcham, also known as The Motor Insurance Repair Research Centre. Thatcham was established in 1969 by British insurers to provide a unique range of products and services to the insurance and motor repair industries. Thatcham conducts research and produce data that assists technicians in the efficient, safe and cost effective repair of motor vehicles.

Delphi & Thatcham have joined forces to provide essential diagnostic equipment, functionality and training for Accident Repair Centres (ARC). Historically, the vast majority of Accident Repair Centres are mechanically orientated and as such, many are outsourcing even basic diagnostic work, e.g. SLR, Read / Erase Fault Codes, MIL resetting, etc. Delphi has developed a customized diagnostic software & hardware solution specifically for Thatcham and its Accident Repair Centres’ customers that links to Thatcham’s existing technical data software.

“Following a review of automotive diagnostic and service providers, we chose to partner with Delphi,” explained Jason Moseley, Chief Operating Officer, Thatcham. "Delphi’s flexible diagnostic solution and comprehensive support programme will enable Thatcham to introduce a very easy- to-use but extremely powerful and effective diagnostic solution for Crash Repair businesses. Delphi and Thatcham are perfectly positioned to help the accident repair and motor insurance sectors meet the daily challenges they face due to the growing complexity of vehicle electronics and diagnostics on modern vehicles.

In addition to these exciting customized solutions Delphi is continuing to increase its vehicle coverage on its existing Diagnostic range — targeting 20% growth year over year.

In 2009:

* Delphi has greatly enhanced its application coverage with an important focus on the coverage depth.
* No less than 6 new vehicle manufacturers’ specific diagnostic protocols were introduced so far this year — Chrysler, Suzuki, Mitsubishi, Iveco, Dodge and SsangYong, and a new software update is yet to be released this year.
* Delphi enhances its diagnostic tools capacity with the introduction at Equip’Auto 2009 of heavy duty vehicle protocols.

“The ongoing & comprehensive developments to our existing diagnostic products and the development of new customized solutions for specific customers and market segments, clearly demonstrate Delphi’s ability to adapt to the challenges of the automotive aftermarket and our commitment to our customers and the industry,” said Kevin Kelly, service business line manager, Delphi Product & Service Solutions, EMEA.
