ALLDATA raises the bar with new Interactive Color Wiring Diagrams
by ALLDATA Staff
ALLDATA has added more than 300,000 non-OE interactive color wiring diagrams to its flagship automotive digital repair solutions, ALLDATA Repair® and ALLDATA Collision®. The addition of these non-OE interactive color wiring diagrams augments ALLDATA’s factory-direct wiring diagrams, and technicians can easily toggle between the two for comparison.
“ Our customers said they wanted more from color wiring diagrams, so that’s what we’ve given them. We’ve taken color wiring diagrams to a whole new interactive level – and the response from service and repair professionals has been over-the-top. ”
With this launch, ALLDATA delivers functionality in color wiring diagrams not found in competitive products. Now techs will save even more time because they’re able to:
View all diagrams in a series – A major diagnostic time-saver, this functionality is unique to ALLDATA’S interactive wiring diagrams.
Highlight a specific wire – Easily track it across all pages in the diagram series.
Hide non-highlighted wires – Non-highlighted wires are ghosted out so techs can clearly see the wires/circuits/components they’re working on.
Pan within a diagram – Zoom in/Zoom out to hone in on details.
Bookmark highlighted articles – Techs can find frequently-used articles with just a click.
Print the full diagram series at once – Most competitive products do not offer this capability. However, with the ability to view all the pages in a series at once, printing the diagram pages and taping them together may be a thing of the past.
Toggle between OE and non-OE diagrams – Techs can easily click to view either OE or non-OE diagrams from one screen for quick comparison.
In addition, technicians will get up to speed faster and start working right away with ALLDATA’s interactive wiring diagrams. The documentation style, diagram keys, and abbreviations are all accessible from one screen and are the same across the entire diagrams spectrum, which includes:
24,000+ models (1985-2016)
This is a huge advantage compared to using multiple OEM repair databases and having to learn dozens of different formats and abbreviations. (Diagrams source: Bosch/Valley Forge.)
“Our customers said they wanted more from color wiring diagrams,” said Mitch Major, Vice President, Commercial Support, AutoZone and President, ALLDATA. “So that’s what we’ve given them. We’ve taken color wiring diagrams to a whole new interactive level – and the response from service and repair professionals has been over-the-top.”
More than 400,000 technicians in 100,000+ shops trust ALLDATA’S flagship software solutions, ALLDATA Repair and ALLDATA Collision, to turn bays quickly, day-in and day-out. ALLDATA is migrating existing ALLDATA Repair and ALLDATA Collision customers to the new interactive color wiring diagram platform in phases. However, new customers purchasing ALLDATA Repair or ALLDATA Collision will have immediate access to the interactive color wiring diagrams.
