Alldata, a provider of manufacturers’ automotive repair information and solutions for the professional automotive service and collision repair industries, announced an expansion to the national account agreement with Fix Auto USA, making Alldata Collision S3500 the preferred provider of OEM repair information to Fix Auto USA members. As part of this agreement, Fix Auto USA members also have the ability to incorporate Alldata Collision S3500’s Estimate Integration, which will give member shops the ability to access OEM repair information while building the estimate.
“Alldata Collision S3500 allows collision repair facilities to repair vehicles to original equipment manufacturer standards,” says Wayne Mitchell, Alldata director of sales and operations. “By offering Alldata Collision S3500 to its members, Fix Auto USA can help its members cut cycle times, reduce supplements and provide proper documentation to consumers and insurers. We are thrilled that Fix Auto is using Alldata Collision S3500 to help their members increase their overall profitability.”
Alldata Collision S3500, which delivers vehicle-specific collision repair information, has been enhanced to integrate OEM repair information directly into collision estimates. Estimate Integration works with estimating systems to offer shops detailed OEM repair information specific to the vehicle and procedure, generating accurate repair plans the first time. Alldata says that with Estimate Integration, Fix Auto USA members can plan a repair to include any sublet time, ensure they have the proper tools and equipment as they write the estimate, and improve overall productivity in the front and the back of the shop.
“Alldata is a clear choice for our members’ electronic repair information needs,” says John Bosin, Fix Auto USA director of membership. “I am not surprised that Alldata has reached the 80,000-subscriber milestone, and I am sure they will be adding more. Fix Auto USA is looking forward to expanding our relationship with Alldata.”
