ALLDATA Adds VIN Decoder Enhancement to Repair System
March 27, 2014—ALLDATA announced on Wednesday that it has enhanced its Repair S3000 system with a VIN decoder.
Entering the VIN into the system will automatically pull up the year, make, model and engine for the specific vehicle being worked on.
ALLDATA said doing so can help ensure the technician is working on the correct vehicle-engine combination.
"In repair shops today, efficiency is king," said Jeff Lagges, president of ALLDATA. "Anything we can do to help technicians save time and move vehicles through faster will help shops increase revenue. So many of us at ALLDATA have worked in the bays turning wrenches, so we understand what can make a positive difference to a shop on a daily basis."
Further enhancements to the system include easier scroll bar navigation and greater control when displaying saved articles.
