Car Tuning Tips and Free ECU Remapping Demonstration and Training Days

Many people interested in car tuning and ecu remapping don’t always get the full picture explained, its easy to become confused, if you are looking at moving into car tuning, chip tuning or ecu remapping our advice is hold on, slow down and take a good look at your options.

Too many people interested in moving into car tuning get bad advice or rush their decision thinking its all just about price, they may be considering operating either as a dealer offering car tuning and ecu remapping services, or writing their own master tuning files and operating a master tuning system – there is much to consider.

Golden Tips for Car Tuning Operators

If you are looking at moving into car tuning and ecu remapping, or choosing a tuning software provider here are our golden rules:

• Very importantly – Go and see your potential car tuning software provider, this is not an industry where you can “fake it until you make it” one wrong ecu remapping tuning file can close you down! You need to know your remap software provider and master file provider can support you and know what they are doing – don’t buy on the phone or internet.
• Check out their facilities – never meet at “your place” or a hotel – you need to know they are the real deal, not just a flash website
• Do they have a dyno – if not how exactly are they going to support you and write quality tuning files – library and formula files will not give you the flexibility and quality you need to grow your business.
• Choose a car tuning and ecu remap provider that can prove they emission test their tuning files – this is really important and is really a legal requirement
• Do they really write all their own car tuning software, many claim to, but few do, it’s important otherwise they will provide library files that can cause many issues, and they will not be able to correct these issues or custom tailor the file to your customer’s needs – this will lose you business. Insist on a detailed demonstration by them of their skills. Drive it before you buy it.
• Is their technical support and training free – it must be, if they want to charge you for support and training, your best interest is clearly not their priority!
• You want a tuning provider that gives free marketing support, ask them how will they help you grow your tuning business.
• Quality matters – of course price is important, but a cheap service, with little back up and support offering cheap tuning files – can be very expensive! And may just close your business before your open day balloons have deflated, you need quality support and quality tuning – never touch a tuner who will not give you a money back guarantee on all the services they offer
• You need a professional team behind you to support you – avoid anyone offering tuning files and ecu remapping tuning support who don’t have a serious technical support team – you should be looking for 365 days a year support as well as a tuning file and tuning support service from at least 8am – 8pm, 7 days a week, its what your customers will ask for.
• Are they insured for writing tuning files. Run a mile if you can’t see both public liability and product liability specifically for ecu remapping and car tuning services – your customers will want to see this – so you do want a copy in your hand! If they don’t have it, do not use them no matter what they offer, you are only exposing you and your business.
• Number one golden rule – can you move your tool? If it all goes wrong and you are not happy will they release your tool so another remap provider can take over – some tuners charge a fee for this, but some poor tuners will not release tools at all ever, you have paid your money and now you are stuck with them, your tool is locked and you cant leave! – its money thrown away. Never ever sign up or buy a tool from a tuner who will not put it in writing that they will release the tool if you ask.

Iso certification, awards, independent testimonials are all good pointers too, you need to look for quality support if you are going to make it in this industry.

Back to our first tip – Go and see your potential ecu remapping tuning partner and support provider.

To help explain the car tuning and remap industry Viezu offer completely free no obligation demonstration days, you can come and meet the technical support team, the marketing team, see the different tools on the market, see tuning files being developed and written, and learn to use the ecu remapping tools and car tuning process.

We offer free car tuning demonstrations days at least once a month, the days are ideal for those looking at client car tuning dealers dealer, and master tuning system operators. If you cant make it – we understand, so we offer skypr sessions too.

We also offer completely free marketing and tuning business building seminars to all our dealers – we are as serious about your tuning business are you are

Here are just a couple of our upcoming demonstration and car tuning training days, but we run them all the time

Viezu Dealer Training and Support – Dealer Seminars 2012

Friday, September 28th, 2012 by Viezu

Viezu Dealer Training and Support – Dealer Seminars 2012

Thursday saw the most recent of our dealer seminars, this year rather than one large seminar for all Viezu dealers, we have chosen to hold smaller group sessions, taking the format of workshops rather than formal presentations, the sessions focus on support, sales, product presentation, marketing and very importantly fleet tuning and B2B customers

We had a good day with some of our best dealers, we often feel tuning can be quite a “remote” business, so it’s always so good to meet our dealers and for them to meet each other to share ideas and work together. We treat tuning very seriously, and we know car tuning dealers need the very best support, the best tuning tools and equipment and to be up to speed with the very fast paced tuning industry – we love these days and we hope all that attended had a great time

Viezu, offer ecu remapping and car tuning services worldwide, ecu tuning all makes and models of vehicle. Find your local Viezu car tuning dealer at www.viezu/dealer-map

Global first for aftermarket tuner: Viezu ISO Certification

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012 by Viezu

Global first for aftermarket tuner: Viezu ISO Certification

Viezu Technologies, one of the world’s leading and fastest growing aftermarket vehicle  tuning and ECU remapping company’s, has achieved a global industry first by becoming fully ISO 9001 certified

The news comes hot on the heels of an official audit which confirmed that Viezu met all the stringent quality criteria to be bestowed the prestigious internationally recognised standard.

Paul Busby, CEO, Viezu, said: “To be the first car engine tuning company in the world to achieve ISO 9001 is great news for Viezu and our customers. It clearly demonstrates our on-going commitment to producing high-quality, market leading products backed up by a first class after sales support.

“Of course, customers of Viezu approved dealers already had the confidence of knowing that all of our products are fully insured, with a money back guarantee, but this independent accolade gives an extra reassurance and is proof of the highest standards we maintain.”

Although nearly all the strict processes were already in place before embarking on ISO certification almost four years ago, Viezu has also substantially invested in new equipment and staff training to ensure it reached the stringent management processes required.

The news also means that Viezu approved dealers can say that the processes and development use to produce the electronic files, (ECU Remapping files) they use are ISO compliant, a strong reassurance to customers who previously may have been reluctant to have had their car retuned.

To achieve ISO 9001 status Viezu demonstrated to The British Standards Institution (BSI) that they had rigid quality management systems in place, including their Technical Training Academy,  (Viezu’s in house car tuning training and car tuning software training centre), thorough staff training, processes for new product development and implementation, and even how they interface with customers.

Paul added: “Although ISO certification benefits our business, we also have the aim of lifting the industry standard and hope other car tuning companies follow suit.

“This award is also particularly important for our Special Projects Team, who already work with a number of car manufacturers, and after market tuning providers helping them to meet increasingly stringent emissions legislation without any sacrifice to performance. This gives a further ‘stamp of approval’ and makes our services and products even more attractive to other vehicle manufacturers.”

Only recently Viezu doubled the size of its technical team and appointed a general manager as a result of the unprecedented demand for its services.

The company has now developed more than 15,000 individual ECU programmes. In some instances Viezu’s products give drivers a massive 15% improvement in fuel economy and 40% reduction in vehicle emissions.

The Bromsgrove based company received Herefordshire and Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce’s ‘Innovation Through Technology’ award at last night’s gala ceremony for its Blue Optimize™ a CO2 reducing and fuel saving tuning service, which helps drivers save fuel and money, as well as reduce their CO2 footprint.  In just 36 months and since the launch of Blue Optimize™, the company estimates that it has helped motorists to reduce their CO2 emissions by more than 50,000 tonnes.

“With record fuel prices, difficult economic conditions and growing concerns for our environment, there’s never been a more important time for drivers to consider having an ECU program upgrade,” explains Paul Busby, Chief Executive Viezu Technologies. “Winning this important accolade is a fantastic achievement which we are delighted with. It’s also a clear recognition of our creative use of technology to help drivers and businesses cut their motoring bills and their environmental impact.”

Viezu’s expertise comes as a result of many years of research, development and experience in the automotive industry. The company’s in-house team of four specialist software engineers develop high-quality and reliable updates to a vehicle’s ECU, changing the performance characteristics from the original settings. The new settings can deliver significant improvements for drivers or tailored performance such as improved power, torque or fuel economy.

The company has now developed more than 15,000 individual ECU programs meaning that over 90 percent of all modern European vehicles can be tuned by a Viezu-approved dealer. In some instances Viezu’s products give drivers a massive 20 percent improvement in fuel economy offering businesses; in particular, potential savings of thousands of pounds every year and a rapid return on their investment.

Emphasising the impact and success of the business, it was also named as a finalist in the Chamber’s ‘International Business of the Year’ award. Two years ago its entire business was UK-based but after significant growth and expansion, nearly half of the company’s sales come from overseas where it has more than 210 dealers located in 34 countries around the world, including Australia, New Zealand, USA, Russia and China. Its UK dealer network has now also expanded to 90 dealers.

“The UK still has exceptional expertise in developing high-value products and services which are in great demand around the world,” continues Busby. “We’re thrilled to be recognised for our efforts in these areas and I’m sure that with our continued investment and commitment to excellence and quality, we will continue to wave the flag proudly for the West Midlands and the UK.”
