...Find the product you need quickly and easily
Motto of the Bosch Pocket Assistant: "Find the product you need quickly and easily". It extends the free Bosch Toolbox app and helps tradespeople find the right tool or accessory. All it takes is simply a simple scan of a Bosch product or accessory packaging using a smartphone, and you have instant access to all available information about the product including technical details and application films. This is all possible thanks to a new product identification function implemented by Bosch in this form for the first time worldwide. It combines various technologies, such as image and text recognition, to ensure that reliable results are obtained. The Bosch Pocket Assistant goes one step further: it not only recognizes the scanned product, it also gives recommendations on which accessories are best suited to which products. In addition to this, tradespeople can order tools and accessories directly online via the app.
Now you can obtain information at anytime, anywhere. This means, for instance, that tradespeople can make sure they have the right sandpaper for their application or the right saw blade for their jigsaw in their shopping cart. All products from the current range are stored in the Bosch cloud from which the app sources its information. As can be seen, Bosch is systematically utilizing the possibilities of networking and the increasing use of smartphones to deliver innovative solutions for professionals.
Processing of services, such as the registration of own power tools for the extended three-year warranty, is also simplified by the Bosch Pocket Assistant. Instead of typing details such as the product serial number into the registration forms, all you need to do is scan the product with the Bosch Pocket Assistant – the product is identified, and the data is entered automatically. The same applies to ordering repairs or registration of tools for "TrackMyTools", the cloud-based Bosch system for administration and localization of workshop equipment. Automatic registration saves time and rules out errors resulting from manual transfer.
The Bosch Pocket Assistant is now available as a free add-on to the Bosch Toolbox app in the Google Play Store and in the Apple App Store for smartphones with Android and iOS operating systems.
