Post: The world’s largest service market competition has been settled

The world’s largest service market competition has been settled
The finals of this year's VISTA competition gathered 43 teams from around the world.

More than 16,000 technicians in some 4500 teams from Volvo Trucks and Volvo Buses’ global dealer network, have participated in this year’s VISTA championship – a global event that was first run already in 1957.

The main objectives with the VISTA competition are to encourage competence development and to build team spirit and pride. Highly skilled and motivated technicians enable Volvo Trucks workshops to carry out fault diagnosis and fix trucks’ problems ‘right first time’, in a timely manner and to high quality standards. These skills are key in helping customers achieve maximum uptime for their trucks. In the end, this leads to improved customer service.

In the finals held in Gothenburg, 43 teams of technicians and service market staff competed for two days to complete six stations, on topics including CAN Link fault-tracing, I-Shift and bodywork. Two stations were VR stations with focus on electric vehicles, one assignment consisted of installing an electric motor on a truck. The numbers of electric trucks and buses are now quickly growing and being able to safely work with electric motors is an important skill for technicians in practically every workshop around the world.

“Our mechanics play a key role in contributing to our customers’ success by keeping their trucks on the road, and VISTA is a great way for them to improve their workshop skills. I’m very impressed by the technical knowledge of the teams this year and the speed with which they solved the challenges presented to them”, comments Roger Alm, President of Volvo Trucks.
