As a practicing automotive technician professional, I appreciate the commitment ALLDATA has in bringing solutions to our industry and to our customers. -Bobby Likis

Bobby Likis, automotive expert and host of the nationally syndicated car-talk program "Bobby Likis Car Clinic," joined Jeff Lagges, President of ALLDATA LLC, inside the company's booth at the 2014 SEMA Show in the Las Vegas Convention Center to catch up on the progress of the three products that were launched at the SEMA Show last year: Mobile℠, Manage® Online and Community™. Likis then rejoined Lagges later in an after-party with an audience of customer/user/focus groups, during which they explored the challenges of the automotive service industry and ALLDATA’s solution plans.
At Likis’s first stop, Lagges updated him on Mobile℠, Manage® Online and Community™. Mobile℠ infuses automotive repair and technology by delivering factory-correct vehicle repair information through the convenience of mobile devices. Manage® Online allows shop owners to stay on top of profitability and manage the customer experience – anywhere, anytime thanks to its cloud-based platform. Community™ is a place where technicians (over 40,000 memberships to date) come together to exchange a plethora of information for other technicians all over the country.
Lagges reflects, “We started on this mission three years ago which has a core focus of three things we want to accomplish: 1. Better connect shops and technicians to the customer, 2. Better connect techs to the vehicle, and 3. Provide a broader source of information, not just from OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers), but peer-to-peer as well.”
The “Beer Bash” after-party was a casually set interview platform for Likis and Lagges to educate current and potential customers on the progress the company has made during the last year since launching their flagship products, how ALLDATA is keying on industry trends to shape product roadmaps, and what to expect in the coming 12-18 months.
Says Likis, “As a practicing automotive technician professional, I appreciate the commitment ALLDATA has in bringing solutions to our industry and to our customers.”
