ALLDATA LLC announced the release of ALLDATA Collision S3500, the next generation of the ALLDATA Collision repair product.
At the core of ALLDATA Collision S3500 is a search feature that makes acquiring information much faster than previous generations, the company says. The intelligence behind the database allows information to be located instantly. "Smart" filtering further speeds up finding relevant information by type or category, according to ALLDATA.
"The OE repair information at the heart of ALLDATA Collision is all still there," said ALLDATA Senior Collision Program Manager Dan Espersen. "But now, it’s easier than ever to locate the procedures and diagrams that a shop needs to efficiently repair a vehicle, whether it’s sectioning procedures, weld types, reset procedures or air bag information. It’s all still there in a new, easier-to-use package."
Electronic estimate integration is enabled with NuGen IT, Inc.’s Collision Data Exchange (CDX) software, to automatically link and retrieve the exact OE repair information relevant to the repairs listed on an estimate. It is compatible with all the major collision estimating programs.
Pinning is a feature unique to ALLDATA Collision S3500, which allows technicians to keep articles open for reference while they continue to gather the information necessary for a proper repair.
"Several articles can be opened and pinned so that technicians and estimators have all the information on a particular procedure at their fingertips," says Espersen. "This can help a shop create accurate repair plans, reduce the need for supplements and streamline operations."
