Elk Grove, CA – September 3, 2008 – ALLDATA® CollisionSM, a revolutionary online collision repair information product, is specifically designed to help collision shops increase productivity, improve customer satisfaction and enhance relationships with insurers and customers.
The ALLDATA collision product was introduced at the request of the collision industry,” says ALLDATA’s Senior Program Manager for Collision, Dan Espersen. “Collision shops have long needed a single source for accurate repair information. ALLDATA Collision fills that need.”
Since the product’s launch in July 2007, shops nationwide using ALLDATA Collision have realized the benefits of having just one source for Domestic, Asian and European auto manufacturers’ collision repair information. ALLDATA Collision also includes ALLDATA® RepairSM, the company’s renowned mechanical diagnostic and repair information product.
ALLDATA Collision gives shops the ability to repair damaged vehicles to OEM specifications by including up-to-date information on the following topics: sectioning and welding locations, advanced metals and plastics, body panel replacement, restraint systems, hybrid technology and much more.
“Finding OEM information from the manufacturers for vehicle repairs is time-consuming, costly and frustrating. Having the OEM information prevents costly mistakes and dramatically reduces lost production time,” says Mitch Becker of ABRA Auto Body and Glass.
