(PRWEB) January 06, 2014
Host of nationally syndicated car-talk program "Bobby Likis Car Clinic," Bobby Likis, interviewed Jeff Lagges, President of ALLDATA, at the 2013 SEMA Show in Las Vegas in November. During the interview, Lagges revealed and demonstrated three new products that have multiple purposes of helping auto shops unplug, yet stay powerfully connected.
"Ultimately, what we are trying to do is allow our shops to communicate with their customers the way the customer wants to be communicated with," says Lagges.
Likis was among the first people to be introduced to the new ALLDATA MobileSM App and the cloud-based ALLDATA Manage® Online shop management system. Lagges also unveiled the new ALLDATA Community online knowledge-sharing forum that uses ALLDATA's database of over 250,000 technicians to provide an easy-to-navigate, fully searchable resource for help diagnosing and servicing today’s increasingly complex vehicles.
Likis reflects, “Just short of a magic wand, ALLDATA’s cloud-based tool chest will enable professional technicians to diagnose and repair vehicles quicker, more accurately, with better documentation...and here’s the super kicker...to share knowledge and collaborate, whether they’re next door or across the country.” Then he adds, “Jeff Lagges – with experience on the ground as a technician and vision in the clouds as ALLDATA’s president – puts all the pieces together in this interview.”
