Further Improvements To Manbat’s Battery Finder Portal
Following the successful launch of its battery look-up website, Manbat Ltd has introduced the second phase of its development plan and added a new trade login area, which will provide factors, workshops and fleet operators with a specific section that will give them access to additional information, such as fitting instructions and product related data.
This new look-up website can be found via batteryfinder.manbat.co.uk
and users simply need to enter the registration number of the vehicle in question into the search box and the site will use a sophisticated VRM look-up database to locate the correct car and provide access to its vehicle-specific details.
This information naturally includes the exact specification of the battery for which it is designed, and therefore provides an absolute assurance the battery is the precise replacement the vehicle manufacturer has specified for that model.
By creating an account, which is completely free, users can login and access other helpful information such as battery specification sheets, as well as battery handling information and do’s and don’ts when it comes to batteries both installed on a vehicle and stored in a warehouse.
Naturally, the look-up portal links in with the main Manbat website from where users can find out more about any aspect of the business including its UK branch network and sister companies that operate in Europe.
It also contains a raft of information concerning the brands the company distributes and the alternative sectors those brands cater for. This is particularly useful for those exploring the option of expanding their offering to include other sectors such as leisure or marine, where the profit margin is substantially greater than it is in the ultra competitive world of automotive and commercial vehicle batteries.
In addition to the VRM look-up, the site allows users to find the correct battery replacement motorcycles and light commercial vehicles, as well as passenger cars, via two alternative routes, should the registration number for some reason not be available. The first is through the vehicle’s own specific identification or VIN number, which it then links through to the database in the same way as the VRM search, the second is a vehicle search menu.
Here, users have an easy and intuitive suite of drop-down boxes to locate the vehicle in the shortest possible number of selections. Both routes allow them to make the identification process extremely quick, while maintaining the accuracy they need.
