ALLDATA Collision Benefits Autobody Craftsman Association Members ALLDATA Collision repair software provides a single source for manufacturers' collision repair information
Elk Grove, CA – April 28, 2009 – ALLDATA LLC, has announced that it has entered into a national account agreement with the Autobody Craftsman Association (ACA). Under the agreement, ALLDATA will provide ACA members with pricing incentives to purchase an ALLDATA® CollisionSM subscription.
“We provide collision repair shops with information from the vehicle’s Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM),” said Wayne Mitchell, ALLDATA Director of National Accounts. “Before ALLDATA Collision, shops would have to rely on previous experience or try to find information on each particular make or model. But now, with automotive technology changing at an increasing pace, OEM information is critical for a proper and safe repair. New metals require specific sectioning and welding techniques. Hybrid technology requires strict adherence to safety procedures. ALLDATA Collision offers collision repair facilities a single source for vehicle-specific information on many late model vehicles.”
“ALLDATA Collision is an important innovation in our industry,” said ACA Executive Director Yumi Vaught. “Changes in technology, work processes and the economy all dictate that we must work more efficiently than ever. Having access to manufacturers’ collision repair information will give our members a significant advantage in delivering high quality work at a fair profit.”
