Digital Resources For Connected Counter Pros

Digital Resources For Connected Counter Pros

The internet and smartphones have changed the game for anyone interested in professional development.

As the aftermarket continually adapts to changing technology and customer needs, counter pros also need to continue their individual educations to keep themselves at the leading edge of these changes.

For years, counter pros have relied on parts manufacturers and suppliers for training and information on parts functions, applications, diagnostics, and installation. Manufacturers such as NGK/NTK are taking full advantage of the internet, mobile computing and social media to make this information easily accessible to parts pros, service advisors and technicians.
