I-CAR Launches RTS Mobile App for Collision Repair Technicians

I-CAR Launches RTS Mobile App for Collision Repair Technicians

OEM repair procedures, calibration requirements, technical news and more will now be right at the fingertips of industry professionals.

I-CAR has taken a significant digital leap with the introduction of the Repairability Technical Support (RTS) app for mobile devices. This move signifies a shift from RTS’s former online-exclusive presence to a more accessible platform, putting OEM partial part replacement, OEM calibration requirements, technical news and industry best practices right at the fingertips of industry professionals.

The RTS app serves as a comprehensive information hub, aiming to bridge gaps within the collision repair industry and provide essential and real-time support, especially to technicians and those doing repair planning. Through RTS, I-CAR aims to connect with the entire collision repair industry to help close knowledge gaps, access technical best practices, provide clarifications on repair procedures, get the latest updates on emerging technologies, access OEM technical information and simply respond to the ever-growing technical needs of our evolving industry.

“As the collision repair industry’s technical education center of excellence, we are excited to be leading forward with the launch of the RTS app,” said John Van Alstyne, CEO and president of I-CAR. “The RTS app was designed to make the job of collision repair professionals easier. Now, they can find the helpful information they need to better perform complete, safe and quality repairs, right in the palm of their hand.”

Looking ahead, I-CAR plans to further enhance the app’s capabilities based on user interaction and feedback, signaling ongoing innovation and responsiveness to the evolving demands of automotive repair. This commitment underscores the organization’s dedication to equipping professionals with the tools and knowledge necessary to perform complete, safe and quality repairs as technicians navigate a dynamic industry landscape. 

The RTS app is available for download starting Monday, April 8 on both iPhone and Android devices. For preview of the app’s features and functionalities, tune in to the latest episode of Repairers Realm, available at I-CAR.com/RepairersRealm.
