Pro-Align upgrades software for national account

Pro-Align, the UK distributor of Hunter wheel servicing equipment, is to upgrade the software on equipment in 600 sites of a key national account. 

Kwik Fit has been using the Hunter Elite TD wheel aligner at its locations across the country since 2014 and Pro-Align is to upgrade the software to the latest WinAlign 17 version. The upgrade will future proof Kwik Fit’s fleet of aligners, offering security updates until 2029.


Hunter gear to get a software upgrade

Clive Seabrook, CEO, Pro-Align said: “We’re delighted to be deepening our eight-year relationship with Kwik Fit. The advances that are made possible by the latest WinAlign 17 software will make a significant and tangible difference to the service Kwik Fit can provide to its customers.”

To support the new software, Pro-Align has agreed a robust training strategy which will see 2000 Kwik Fit technicians trained on how to use the equipment, including features specific to BMW and Mercedes-Benz models. The upgrade rollout began in August 2022 and is scheduled for completion by January 2023. 

The firm will also install the Hunter Elite TD system with upgraded software across 14 Kwik Fit and Tyre Pros centres, with one site investing in a new Hunter DSP706 aligner for its workshop.
