Automates repair planning for collision shops  
with OEM accuracy


ELK GROVE, Calif. – April 30, 2024 – ALLDATA has announced the launch of Repair Planner, which is the newest addition to the company’s integrated collision repair platform.

ALLDATA Repair Planner is a timesaving software tool that automates the repair planning process and helps shops plan necessary inspections and structural repairs with original equipment manufacturer (OEM) accuracy.

It works with the three major estimating systems and integrates seamlessly with ALLDATA Collision® for one-click access to related OEM information and procedures.

“We are constantly developing solutions to help technicians find the OEM information they need faster, improve accuracy and expedite the collision repair workflow,” said ALLDATA President Satwinder Mangat. “Repair Planner dramatically reduces the time users need to spend researching OEM information and aims to add a layer of protection for shop owners by calling out exactly what’s required to repair vehicles back to factory standards.”

Benefits to shops include:

Saves hours of research time

ALLDATA Repair Planner reviews an estimate in seconds, flagging OEM-specified structural repairs and identifying repair information line by line.
