without it. AudaLite really helps to impress our customers, bringing the retail experience into the 21st century. It’s simple to learn and use, looks really professional and allows us to sell more services to our customers – both retail and internal - in a way they trust us”

spacer Choosing an iPad

If you wish to use AudaLite within your bodyshop, you will need wifi connectivity only. However, should you wish to use AudaLite remotely at customers’ locations, you will need cellular or 3G/4G connectivity.
We recommend that you use an iPad with a storage capacity of 16GB as our application itself does not use a lot of space. You can purchase an iPad from most high street mobile phone shops or an Apple Store.
