ELK GROVE, Calif., Sept. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ALLDATA Europe GmbH, an affiliate of ALLDATA LLC, an AutoZone company, will showcase its latest features in ALLDATA Repair® at Automechanika 2018 in Frankfurt.

The new enhancements are being introduced as the company continues to aggressively publish new content in ALLDATA Repair, reflecting ALLDATA’s ongoing commitment to provide the most in-depth OEM diagnostic and repair solution to complete jobs including the most complex vehicle technologies. Since Automechanika 2016, ALLDATA has added over 400 models and 13 million articles including 2019 models, and currently has more than 850 models and 37 million articles.

VIN search
ALLDATA has partnered with an industry leader to provide VIN search so technicians can quickly navigate to the exact information they need to repair the vehicle. VIN search will be introduced in phases, with the first iteration at Automechanika, enabling VIN decoding where for some models, the technician will select the engine code.

Vehicle search and selection
New enhancements include a search functionality where technicians can type in the vehicle information and the results automatically populate. Also featured is the addition of drop-down menus for platform and Year, Make, Model, Engine (YMME) and the ability to navigate between YMME and the Repair platform without changing the profile, making it more efficient and user friendly.

ALLDATA is working on future application enhancements including the ability to store recent vehicles and synonym search. The company is also speaking with several manufacturers and expects to add additional brands over the next year.

“We are at a pivotal point of growth serving more than 6,000 customers in Europe. We have key partners throughout Europe including our core markets, Germany and the United Kingdom, and ALLDATA has attracted attention of other leading players including those in the body repair space, which is largely underserved with OEM information across Europe,” said Kevin F. Culmo, Managing Director ALLDATA Europe GmbH and Group Vice President, ALLDATA LLC. “We have a unique opportunity now to capture customer and market feedback as we make investments in the product to meet market demands.”

“Ongoing development aligns with our mission to bring ALLDATA’s market leadership to Europe by providing the most comprehensive source of original manufacture information and the highest level of professional support to workshops,” said Satwinder Mangat President, ALLDATA. “With more than 115,000 subscribers worldwide performing heavy diagnostic and repair work every day, we remain committed to staying at the forefront of technical solutions that enhance the sustainability of the mechanical and collision industries.”

ALLDATA will be showing the new enhancements in ALLDATA Repair during live demos and daily Tech Talks at Automechanika Frankfurt, September 11 – 15, 2018. Visit the ALLDATA booth in Hall 9.1/Booth E10.
