New! Interactive Color Wiring Diagrams Now Available
ELK GROVE, Calif., Sept. 26, 2017 – ALLDATA, an AutoZone company, announces its newest technology platform that features extensive, integrated updates to ALLDATA Repair® and ALLDATA Collision®. One of those is the addition of Interactive Color Wiring Diagrams that give technicians the option to work with non-OE AND factory-direct wiring diagrams, functionality exclusive to ALLDATA. This integrated technology platform now offers customers:
MORE Data: ALLDATA is the most complete source of vehicle data in the industry, covering more than 38,000 engine-specific vehicles, which is 95% of all vehicles on the road today.
BETTER Search: A single search look-up now provides both tech-verified repairs and factory-direct information on one screen, helping technicians find relevant repair info faster.
FASTER Navigation: A redesigned, more intuitive interface gives users the information they need with fewer clicks.
“The response to the updated ALLDATA Repair and Collision has been extremely enthusiastic,” said Mitch Major, Vice President, Commercial Support, AutoZone and President, ALLDATA. “Making these significant enhancements – including interactive color wiring diagrams – was a direct result of feedback from our existing customer base. We listened to what they wanted and now deliver a radically advanced technology platform with best-in-class performance and usability.”
NEW – over 300,000 non-OE interactive color wiring diagrams
With this launch, ALLDATA delivers exclusive functionality not found in competitors’ color wiring diagrams. Now technicians will save even more time because they can:
View diagrams side by side: A major diagnostic time-saver, this functionality is unique to ALLDATA’S interactive wiring diagrams.
Highlight a specific wire: Easily track a wire 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 enables techs 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: ALLDATA exclusive.
Toggle between OE and non-OE diagrams for comparison: ALLDATA exclusive.
The new ALLDATA documentation style, diagram keys, and abbreviations are accessible from one screen and are applied across the entire diagram spectrum. This is far easier and more user-friendly than using multiple OEM repair databases and having to learn dozens of different formats and abbreviations. Technicians will get up to speed faster and start working right away with access to more than 300,000 interactive color wiring diagrams, covering 49 makes and 24,000 models, 1985-2016.
