ELK GROVE, Calif., Aug. 4, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ALLDATA LLC, the leading provider of manufacturers' automotive repair information and solutions for the professional collision and automotive service repair industries, has launched ALLDATA Mobile for collision shops.
"Productivity equates to profitability in collision shops," said ALLDATA President Jeff Lagges. "Working on a tablet frees estimators and technicians to access OEM information right where they need it – at the car. Now, the same OEM information that Collision shops have been using on desktop and laptop computers is available wirelessly on a tablet."
Adding the mobile capability to ALLDATA Collision S3500 gives estimators and technicians the power to quickly access OEM collision repair procedures, diagrams, diagnostic information and technical service bulletins anywhere in the shop. It saves even more time and ensures accurate vehicle selection by automatically recording and translating VINs directly from the vehicle.
"ALLDATA Mobile for collision shops can greatly increase shop efficiencies," added Lagges. "These days, a competitive advantage goes to the shop with a reputation based on speed, accuracy and fairness. ALLDATA Mobile is an essential tool for ensuring a successful outcome."
