ALLDATA Introduces the Next Generation of ALLDATA Repair Newly revised repair product offers several new market-leading features designed to improve shop efficiencies
Las Vegas, NV – November 02, 2010 – ALLDATA LLC,
the leading provider of vehicle manufacturers’ service and repair
information for professional repair shops, announces the release
of ALLDATA® RepairSM S3000, the next
generation of the market-leading ALLDATA Repair information
product. ALLDATA Repair S3000 introduces several new features
aimed at improving efficiencies and performance.
“The automobile has changed drastically over the past several
years resulting in a far more complex vehicle,” explains Ben
Johnson, ALLDATA Senior Product Marketing Manager. “With
sophisticated electronic and interdependent systems, there is,
naturally, a greater need for more advanced repair information.
Because ALLDATA adds more than a million pages of data per year
to its databases, there is an increased need for faster search
capabilities and simplicity in navigation. The new search feature
offers the user an easy-to-use alternative to conventional
ALLDATA Repair S3000 searches ALLDATA’s entire database of repair
information for any phrase relative to a specific vehicle. The
results yield a much greater amount of relevant information than
previous versions of the software. ALLDATA Repair S3000 is a
direct response to an evolving aftermarket repair environment.
Today’s ever-changing array of vehicles requires highly skilled
technicians with access to sophisticated, detailed data. The
ALLDATA Repair S3000 search function will return all appropriate
information, including: technical service bulletins (TSBs),
component locations, diagnostic articles and more. Additionally,
searches can be easily filtered by information type.
Another new feature of ALLDATA Repair S3000 allows multiple
articles to display simultaneously. Users can navigate through
the product, “pinning” articles along the way to keep them open
and accessible. “To work effectively, multiple articles may be
used during a diagnostic or repair procedure,” says Johnson.
“Take diagnostic trouble codes, for example. It is not unusual to
need the actual diagnostic article, associated TSBs, wiring
diagrams, component locations and other relevant articles. The
advanced features in ALLDATA Repair S3000 will allow the user to
quickly locate information, then pin the articles they need and
arrange them on their desktop for greatest efficiency.”
iSHOP is a set of standards, developed by AAIA, that lets a
shop’s equipment seamlessly share data about the customer, the
vehicle, and the services performed, without having to re-enter
information. It is this technology that will enable ALLDATA to
make available targeted information, such as parts and labor data
and electrical diagrams.
