Two New ALLDATA Products Help Auto Shops Unplug, yet Stay Connected. Press Release
Mobile and cloud-based technologies offer new
flexibility, efficiency and revenue opportunities to auto repair
Elk Grove, California –November 4,
2013 – At the 2013 Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week
trade shows in Las Vegas, ALLDATA LLC, the leading provider of
manufacturers’ automotive repair information and solutions for
the professional automotive service and collision repair
industries, will showcase its new ALLDATA Mobile app and
cloud-based ALLDATA Manage Online shop management system.
“ALLDATA was an innovator from the very beginning,” said ALLDATA
President Jeff Lagges. “We were first to market with
manufacturers’ repair data in electronic form, and we are still
developing technologies designed to help automotive repair shops
thrive. Industry Week is the perfect time to showcase what we
have been working on. The new ALLDATA products being debuted at
the shows are part of our longer-term strategy of creating
practical, easy-to-use tools that improve shop operations and
ALLDATA Mobile is now available as an iPad® app and
will soon be introduced on the Android®
platform. With ALLDATA Mobile, technicians can access ALLDATA’s
vast database of vehicle manufacturers’ diagnostic and repair
information. They can also connect to vehicles through the OBD
port, read VIN information and pull standard P Codes, which are
linked to specific manufacturers’ repair articles.
ALLDATA Manage Online, a cloud-based shop management system, will
also be introduced during Industry Week. ALLDATA Manage Online is
a streamlined, browser-enabled application. Because of
this, a service writer can have access to ALLDATA Manage Online
anywhere within a Repair Shop that has WiFi – even from
tablets/mobile devices. As an online product, there is no
installation, and backups and updates are automatic.
“We are focused on workflow based solutions using mobile
platforms,” explained ALLDATA’s Lagges. “I invite everyone
at SEMA and AAPEX to stop by and test drive and pre-order ALLDATA
Mobile and ALLDATA Manage Online.”
