By 16 March, 2017NEWS

ISTOBAL has earned an award at the Gallery of Innovation of Motortec Automechanika for its innovative Virtual Assistant for wash program selection.

The organisers of the International Exhibition for the Automotive Industry in Spain -to be held on March 18 in Madrid- have made public the list of Gallery of Innovation winners. The awards acknowledge the sector’s technological breakthroughs.

In the car wash category, ISTOBAL has received an award for its Virtual Assistant, intended to facilitate wash program selection to customers and reduce selection time by 50%.

Thanks to a user-centered design (UCD) and an algorithm, Kate and Robert -the virtual assistants- help customers choose the wash program that best suits their needs based on the vehicle’s condition. This system also improves fluidity at the car wash station, enhancing business profitability.

ISTOBAL presents latest solutions at Motortec to improve carwash quality, effectiveness and user experience

At Motortec’s Hall 2 (stand no. 2C01), ISTOBAL will present its latest developments to the national market with a focus on quality, effectiveness and user experience.

The Spanish company is committed to Motortec as a launching pad for their latest solutions, which include the new M’NEX32 rollover -with more features and innovative optional extras- and the Multi-disk wheelwash brush. This new system reaches all grooves and difficult areas on rims, with much better cleaning results than traditional brushes. Besides, it is easily adaptable to any carwash machine, as no additional mechanism is required.

To be marketed in just a few months with high expectations, the new rollover ensures a thorough cleaning and a rewarding user experience thanks to its LED lighting and screens, the Infinite Mousse Arch and a new dosing system for esens® chemicals generating less waste.

The Carwash Kiosk is another major innovation in the trade event. A centralised point of sale for car wash programs for all machines in the same facility, it also features the award-winning Virtual Assistant.

The n’joywash experience area incorporates new accessories for motorbikes and bicycles, as well as other optional extras like music, fragrances and special lighting to create a pleasant and unique car wash experience.

Intended for commercial vehicles, ISTOBAL recently developed the HeavyWash Rotators, a new pressure-wash drive-though model for special vehicles that cannot be washed on a standard rollover.

Likewise, ISTOBAL will present, for the first time, the new xtract mixing system, a convenient device that simplifies the handling of chemicals by diluting and mixing Bio Cap and Doy Pack formats automatically. This system saves operator time in preparing the product, and ensures that the film is totally dissolved, making the use of chemicals more convenient, speedy and safe.

And new formats of xtract by esens® chemicals will be presented too. This system of super-concentrated car wash products reduces CO2 emissions by 80% and hardly generates any waste into the environment.

Solutions for equipment leasing and technical service complete ISTOBAL’s wide offer

The Spanish company will also present its equipment leasing service at Motortec: ISTOBAL Business Rent. All products and services are offered under flexible lease conditions tailored to customer needs.

At the Technical Service area, the IW-Manager, a computer program for the remote control and management of car wash facilities, will be demonstrated.
