TMD Friction adds innovative new features to Textar Brakebook app

Textar-barcode-scanner_engNow with integrated barcode and brake pad scanners, the Textar Brakebook app makes finding the right brake pad easier than ever.

The Textar Brakebook application for mobile devices and tablets has already proven to be a useful service tool for independent garages and the automotive parts trade by giving users real-time access to the entire Textar parts catalogue – putting a vast amount of data quite literally in the palm of your hand. However the integration of digital scanning technology now takes Brakebook up a gear.

New barcode and brake pad scanning tools are now stand-out features of the latest version of this innovative app’. Now, simply by scanning the barcode on the packaging of any Textar product, the app’ will display all of the relevant product information, including technical specifications, vehicle application and fitment details, OE references and product diagrams.

Equally innovative, the new brake pad scanning tool within the latest version of the all Textar Brakebook app’ is the ideal solution to the common problem of identifying a brake pad from just its shape. Simply take a picture of the brake pad using the camera on the smartphone or tablet and upload it to the app’ to reveal the item’s part number and all of the relevant product information.

Whilst retaining the ability to search for product information by Textar part number or the OE reference, TMD Friction has also radically revised the design of its Textar Brakebook app and the latest release now features an improved and more intuitive user experience, with easier navigation and a more advanced vehicle search function that now enables the user to switch easily between manufacturers and models.

The app’ updates autonomously to provide new product information, ensuring that the user can easily keep up to date. The Textar Brakebook app is available for both Android devices and iPhone.
