This French software holding company recently visited South Africa, with MIWA hosting Daryll Watts, InfoPro’s UK General Manager, on 10 and 11 August. Steven Southern of OATS (the leading global provider of data solutions and expertise to the lubrications industry) also attended the meeting, which aimed to shed a spotlight on industry trends and examine how they could be adapted to the local market.
The meeting gave us a chance to address the need for South African lubricant data software, which could yield great benefits for workshops, while the possibility of seeing UK insurance companies streamline admin work to their workshops was also discussed. We also leveraged the Right to Repair campaign to expedite the inclusion of more South African car models in the HaynesPro workshop database.
MIWA took advantage of InfoPro’s presence in South Africa to arrange a meeting with the Sol-Tech Training Academy, as HaynesPro has agreed to donate one free licence for every four licences purchased by MIWA purchases. This donation includes access for four lecturers and 24 learners allowing excellent exposure to a world-class workshop data program.
