RTS - Repair Tracking Service

With the RTS system InfoTip operates in Germany the largest cross-vendor sector platform for registering and controlling of repairs for a large number of manufacturers from consumer electronics and small electric appliances. The system recognizes and supports all handling types which are conceivable in a service case.  It doesn’t matter whether it is a pickup, an exchange (swap, double-swap), a refund or an in-place/home service.
