Volkswagen trusts in Getac's robust hardware

Published:  23 November, 2017

Getac has announced Volkswagen AG as the latest customer for its mobile computers. Working closely with Volkswagen, Getac has developed two robust computers for use in international group-wide vehicle diagnostics and other production applications for the VW, Audi, Skoda and Seat brands as well as for the VW utility vehicles. The VAS 6150E notebook is based on the Getac S410. Meanwhile, the VAS 6160E tablet is based on the new Getac A140. The new device combines already integrated components, such as the offboard diagnostic information system service and the diagnostic interface.  “We are proud to have set another automotive milestone through the intensive cooperation with Volkswagen,” said Rick Hwang, president of the rugged business unit at Getac Technology Corporation. “Our teams worked hand in hand in order to create an optimal solution for Volkswagen in terms of functionality, reliability and supply chain processes.”

Dr. Karl-Friederich Bremeier, manager, factory equipment, Group Service Volkswagen added:   “With the use of Getac's robust hardware, we are undertaking a change of supplier and we can therefore offer our customers workshop-capable, high-quality diagnostic equipment in a very good price-performance ratio.”
