ALLDATA LLC, a provider of manufacturers’ vehicle repair information and solutions for the professional automotive service and collision repair industries, has announced that its ALLDATA Market is now available to collision repair shops. ALLDATA says its Market product can provide collision repair shops an Internet presence and help improve their marketing efforts.
"ALLDATA Market gives a shop visibility they didn’t have before," said Dan Espersen, ALLDATA’s senior collision program manager. "With an online presence and the listing in our ‘Find-A-Shop’ directory, customers can find a collision shop easily when they need one, perhaps even while on the side of the road."
ALLDATA says Market offers advanced features that help shops successfully compete in today’s economic climate:
Fully hosted shop website with content provided by ALLDATA
Personalized customer pages with service histories
Automated newsletters on the customer’s behalf
Find-A-Shop — national directory listing making it easy for customers to find a local shop
Online appointment scheduling (integrated with ALLDATA Manage)
"Mechanical shops have benefited from ALLDATA Market for years," said Espersen. "Now collision repair shops can have a website and level the playing field with a tool that makes it easy to be found by a customer and keep customers coming back by staying top of mind."
