The proven Bosch ESI[tronic] diagnostic software, which is used in Bosch Car Service operations and independent automotive workshops worldwide, is to be faster, more intuitive, and simpler in the future, thanks to the improved ESI[tronic] Evolution. The new features and modifications will be introduced step by step with each future update, allowing ESI[tronic] users to gradually familiarize themselves with the innovative functions while using the software in practice.
New home screen for faster access to information
With the 2024/1 main release of the diagnostic software at the end of January 2024, ESI[tronic] 2.0 Online will become ESI[tronic] Evolution. The fundamental redesign starts with the introduction of a new home screen, from which the user has direct access to the most important main and submenus of ESI[tronic]. For example, they can launch the system overview, call up technical data and maintenance plans, or read out the condition of the high-voltage battery (state of health) with just one click. This saves time and makes it easier to access data and find the desired information. In addition, the new home screen has an intuitive design, and its improved and more clearly structured overview of the diagnostic software’s contents and functions simplifies navigation. A redesigned vehicle identification function also makes vehicle selection much easier.
Another new feature is the option to customize the home screen to each user’s individual needs. The enhanced menu selection tool can be used to add required functions and remove unnecessary ones. After the user has logged into ESI[tronic] Evolution via SingleKey ID, the home screen then shows only the information and functions relevant to them. This improves work processes and increases productivity.
The initial way the structure and design of the ESI[tronic] Evolution submenus are displayed is unchanged from ESI[tronic] 2.0 Online. With further updates, the submenus will be gradually adapted to the new design of the ESI[tronic] Evolution home screen.
New “Original documents” function provides direct access to manufacturer information
Bosch is also expanding its diagnostic software to include direct access to original documents from the Audi and VW brands for the first time. If workshops are to carry out servicing and repair work professionally and efficiently, their experts need to be able to get the best possible information on each work step reliably and quickly. The better the instructions, the easier it is to replace a component or find a fault in the electrical system, for example. ESI[tronic] Evolution provides users with all the information they need – literally at the touch of a button and directly from the vehicle manufacturer. In a separate window, the user can then search and view original documents such as circuit diagrams and instructions. Access to data from other brands will follow.
The functions of the Bosch Connected Repair Cloud network solution, which connects workshop devices with each other and stores their data in the central Bosch Cloud, will also be integrated and displayed directly on the home screen in the future. Users will then be able to start, process, and complete tasks directly from ESI[tronic] Evolution.
