Tokyo, Japan – NSK Ltd. has made Navi-Focus – a program for instantaneously calculating bearing life and torque – compatible for use on the Apple iPad tablet computer. The new version became available to its tech services and salespersons worldwide on Aug. 6, 2013.

The intent of the release of the Navi-Focus program is to improve the speed and efficiency of tech services, thereby improving customer satisfaction and strengthening NSK’s sales structure and culture.

NSK will endeavour to expand the use of IT tools to provide more sales support tools going forward.

Navi-Focus is a service that NSK started in 2008. It enables salespersons to instantaneously calculate the life and torque of bearings under consideration. By making Navi-Focus available on the iPad, salespersons will now be able to quickly select the bearing that is best suited for customers and dealerships, even when they are away from the office.

NSK said that one of the aims of digitizing its product catalogues is to reduce costs by decreasing the amount of paper used, as well as eliminating or reducing the chore of creating, distributing and storing meeting documents.
