ELK GROVE, Calif. – Oct. 29, 2018 – ALLDATA LLC, an AutoZone company, will showcase the newest features in ALLDATA Diagnostics™ at Booth #10631 in the North Hall, SEMA 2018.

ALLDATA Diagnostics turns a tablet into a professional-level scan tool with direct ALLDATA access (requires a subscription to ALLDATA Repair® or ALLDATA Collision®). It includes unlimited pre- and post-scans with no per-scan charge, plus free software and data updates. There’s not even an upfront charge for the equipment – it’s all included in one low-cost subscription.

Having ALLDATA Repair or Collision built into the ALLDATA Diagnostics scan tool system means that technicians have direct access to the industry’s leading source for unedited original equipment manufacturer (OEM) repair information (without punching out to a separate browser or app). The ALLDATA database of factory-direct diagnostic and repair procedures includes more than 38,000 vehicles – 95 percent of all vehicles on the road today.

ALLDATA Diagnostics helps shops limit liability by providing access to OEM information, integrated with Diagnostics’ full-system, pre-and post-scan reports for proper documentation. Most insurers require participating Direct Repair Program (DRP) shops to use OEM information such as that provided by ALLDATA to ensure safe, accurate, and reliable repairs.

“We listened to our customers about what they need to quickly and properly diagnose automotive problems, and we delivered that solution and more,” said ALLDATA President Satwinder Mangat. “Our Diagnostics solution is an innovative addition to the ALLDATA technology platform. It’s the only scanning device on the market that truly integrates OEM repair content with scanning right at the vehicle – using one fast, easy-to-use application. It’s not only cost-effective, it’s actually driving new revenue with reimbursements from insurers for OE-required pre- and post-repair scans.”
