Las Vegas, Nevada — November 2, 2017 — NSF International, which specializes in product testing, auditing and certification, has announced the release of its new automotive app: Vehicle Repair Connect.

The app, launched at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, provides information on thousands of automotive parts, both certified and non-certified, as well as the ability to report problems about parts in what it calls a “few simple steps.” It is now available for free on the Apple App Store and Google Play.

In a statement, the company said the app is a useful tool to find and track auto parts for insurers, part distributors and repair shops. It gives users the ability to search for parts based on make, model, year or Partslink number.

Other key features of the app include the ability to look up information about an automotive part, not just NSF certified parts, and verify whether a part is certified and file a complaint.

“NSF International’s Vehicle Repair Connect app expedites the submission process so issues about parts can be reported in a few minutes,” said Bob Frayer, Global Managing Director of NSF International’s Automotive Certification Programs. “Without a simple and effective process for reporting problems, opportunities for improvement go unrealized.”

Additionally, repair technicians may take photos of the part and describe issues they have encountered with the fit of a part, the quality or a related issue. Once the complaint is submitted, NSF International’s automotive certification team will investigate and report a resolution to the issue.

If an issue is found, NSF said the data can be provided to manufacturers, distributors, shops and insurers so that quality improvements remain a priority.
