Free mobile app for Walker products aims to simplify emissions repairs
Tenneco Inc. has introduced a free mobile app for iPhone, iPad and Android mobile devices that connects consumers and automotive service providers to the Walker Emissions Control brand and its products.
Available now through Google Play, the Apple App Store and www.WalkerExhaust.com, the new Walker mobile app includes resources like a VIN scanner; in-depth library of technical and troubleshooting videos; dealer locator; e-catalog and more for automotive service professionals looking for Walker emissions control products.
The company says the Walker app is designed to help simplify the more complex emission control repairs and product installations, according to Denise Hanefeld, marketing coordinator for the Walker brand for Tenneco.
“Within seconds, you can determine what product you need for your repair, compare detailed emissions specifications and view timely troubleshooting videos,” says Hanefeld.
The VIN scanner allows the user to scan the vehicle identification number and locate the specific Walker EPA- or CARB-compliant converters needed for the repair. After the user scans the VIN, the app takes the user to the Walker product catalog for that specific vehicle, displaying the Walker products available and providing detailing information specific to the application.
The app also provides direct access to videos included in the Walker technical library like the “Walker 13 Steps to Diagnosing Emissions Control Issues,” “5 Checks to Perform When Replacing a Converter” and many others.
The new Walker app features an e-catalog, part search and dealer locator functions. The e-catalog allows the user to identify Walker products for a specific application. The part search function allows the user to look up by the Walker part number and see detailed product specs, features and benefits.
The dealer locator uses the mobile device’s GPS signal or the manual entry of city, state or ZIP code to determine the nearest parts retailer or automotive service location. The app provides a prompt to allow the user to call the retailer or service location and even includes a convenient mapping feature.
To download the app, visit the Google Play or Apple App Store. The Walker app also can be downloaded through the www.WalkerExhaust.com website.
