Nokian Tyres extends SnapSkan service to Norway
The digital SnapSkan service, developed by Nokian Tyres in cooperation with the tyre retail and car service chain Vianor, has been extended to five new checking points in the Nordic countries. It makes tyre condition checking and monitoring simple and quick without any extra cost.
The SnapSkan makes measuring tyre tread depth quick and easy by utilising the latest 3D scanning technology. SnapSkan scanners can be found at parking garages’ exits or entries. The driver drives over the scanner ramp when they enter or exit the parking garage and SnapSkan automatically scans the tyres. The driver can opt-in by SMS or online either before or after the scanning to get the digital report of tyres’ condition. The report includes the measurements of tyre treads and a code that offers a discount on new tyres in selected stores.
“Caring and safety are at the core of everything we do. SnapSkan is a unique consumer service and it sets us apart from other tyre manufacturers. SnapSkan allows us to communicate to the drivers not only the condition of their tyres but also what effects their condition has on road safety in general,” said Hille Korhonen, President & CEO for Nokian Tyres.
SnapSkan was first introduced in 2016 at the technology and startup event Slush. A prototype of the service was in use at a multi-storey parking garage in Helsinki and the first customer service point was opened in June 2017 in a parking garage in Turku, Finland. The customer feedback from these first two service points was used to develop the entire SnapSkan consumer service even further.
SnapSkan is also going international with the opening of a new service point in Oslo, Norway. This is the first service point outside Finland.
