KPIT Technologies, a leading software provider for the automotive and mobility ecosystem has announced its partnership with SOMIT solutions, a UK cloud-based vehicle diagnostics specialist.
Given the shortage of trained and certified service technicians due to rapidly evolving software-centric architectures, high-tech automotive engineering, and an increase in vehicle complexity, SOMIT 's cloud-based vehicle diagnostics platform and expert consulting services is expected to plug the gap and offer after-sales service for high tech luxury and new age OEMs.
Featuring intelligent and intuitive diagnostics solutions, SOMIT’s cloud-based platform will increase service technicians' first-time-right repair ratio, which will improve their user experience and service quality.
Kishor Patil, co-founder, CEO, and MD, KPIT Technologies, said, "SOMIT has created a niche for themselves in the challenger EV OEM segment. Their cloud-based platform complements KPITs existing after-sales platform to offer a more integrated solution for the benefit of our T25 clients. Generating revenue through the lifecycle of a vehicle is a key priority for OEMs. SOMIT and KPIT will better enable their OEM clients in realizing this strategic objective. This will be one of the fastest-growing market opportunities in the next 3-5 years."
Julian Soanes, Founder and CEO, SOMIT solutions, said, “Our vision to build cloud-based, scalable diagnostics and after-sales solutions that offer comprehensive coverage will be strengthened by KPIT.”
Stefan Zeppetzauer, Business leader – Vehicle Diagnostics, KPIT Technologies, said, “By integrating solutions from SOMIT, KPIT will further strengthen the leadership position of its AI-driven guided diagnostics platform. Additionally, the integrated solution will enable KPIT & SOMIT to broaden industry reach, while maximizing aftersales service efficiencies for clients in the automotive and mobility industry.”
KPIT Technologies recently announced the expansion of its US presence with a software excellence centre at Novi in Michigan. This move is expected to accelerate software-defined vehicle development for mobility OEM giants and Tier 1s within the US.
