ALLDATA's at it again... and ‘it’ is the innovation and delivery of powerful e-tools for automotive service shop and technician professionals.
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) November 06, 2013
Bobby Likis, automotive expert and host of the nationally syndicated car-talk program "Bobby Likis Car Clinic," will interview Jeff Lagges, President of ALLDATA LLC, at ALLDATA booth #11119 at the SEMA Show in the Las Vegas Convention Center, today at 1 p.m.
Likis will be among the first people to be introduced to the new ALLDATA Mobile App and the cloud-based ALLDATA Manage Online shop management system. Says Likis, “ALLDATA’s at it again...and ‘it’ is the innovation and delivery of powerful e-tools for automotive service shop and technician professionals.” Likis expands, “During Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week in Las Vegas, ALLDATA is revealing and demonstrating two new products that have dual purposes of helping auto shops unplug, yet stay powerfully connected. I’ll talk with ALLDATA President Jeff Lagges specifically about how ALLDATA Mobile and ALLDATA Manage Online work individually and synergistically to improve shop operations and profitability.”
Likis and Lagges will explore ALLDATA MobileSM, which is now available as an iPad app and will soon be introduced on the Android platform. With ALLDATA Mobile, technicians can access ALLDATA’s vast database of vehicle manufacturers’ diagnostic and repair information. They can also connect to vehicles through the OBD port, read VIN information and pull standard P Codes, which are linked to specific manufacturers’ repair articles.
ALLDATA Manage Online, a cloud-based shop management system, will also be introduced during Industry Week. ALLDATA Manage Online is a streamlined, browser-enabled application. Because of this, a service writer can have access to ALLDATA Manage® Online anywhere within a repair shop that has WiFi – even from tablets/mobile devices. As an online product, there is no installation, and backups and updates are automatic.
All press is welcomed to attend Likis’s interview of Lagges, and both will be available for discussions afterward.
