Auto Windscreens becomes first national automotive glazing provider to sign up to 1link service network

Auto Windscreens has become the first national automotive glazing provider
to sign up to the 1link Service Network e-commerce platform.

The development means that fleets will be able to include the buying of
replacement glass for cars and vans within the standard service and
maintenance procedures they operate online.

1link Service Network now interfaces directly with Auto Windscreens’ own IT
systems to allow a seamless quotation, job approval and agreed invoicing
process.

Nigel Davies, managing director at Auto Windscreens, said: "1link Service
Network is used by almost every major leasing fleet and being able to
provide glass through the platform provides a new and highly effective route
for customers to access our services."

Ken Trinder, head of business development at epyx, the company behind 1link,
said that being able to provide automotive glazing through 1link Service
Network was an important development.

He said: "Specialist automotive glazing is an element of SMR buying that has
so far been largely absent from 1link Service Network and we are pleased to
welcome Auto Windscreens to the platform."

Auto Windscreens is the UK’s leading fleet automotive glazing company,
having partnerships with most major insurance providers and a nationwide
network of fitting centres backed by a fleet of mobile service units.

Launched in 2003, 1link Service Network is used by fleets running more than
two million vehicles to buy service and maintenance from 16,000 franchise
dealers, independent garages and fast-fits. It provides a fast and efficient
online mechanism for authorising and processing SMR transactions that
massively improves control, accuracy and service levels while reducing costs
for all parties.
