News: Focus Advisors: Conflicting Forces Impacting Collision Repair
Opus IVS has announced that it will introduce IVSMap at the SEMA Show (booth no. 35069), a patent-pending digital vehicle blueprint map integrating the diagnostic tool with Opus IVS repair data and ALLDATA service information.
IVSMap creates an ADAS blueprint with a list of ADAS systems on the vehicle, calibrations required (by system), targets required, estimated time to calibrate system(s), service information links, ALLDATA trouble code service information lookup by DTC, Opus IVS repair suggestions by vehicle and technical notes. Additionally, IVSMap enables collision repairers to connect with an ADAS expert on-demand for that vehicle to help consult on a repair plan.
“IVSMap drives safety and productivity by alerting repairers to what ADAS equipment is on the vehicle before the repair, what targets are needed and other relevant calibration information,” said Brian Herron, presiden of Opus IVS. “It uses innovative technology developed by Opus IVS and integrated with our DriveSafe and ScanSafe tools to read ADAS information directly out of the vehicle ECUs and automatically provides a blueprint of ADAS technology and service information. From there, customers can press a button and connect remotely to our IVS 360 Live Expert Support team that covers every vehicle brand to answer questions or help resolve calibration issues or diagnostics.
“We believe IVSMap represents the next generation of safety and productivity for collision shops. Our team has provided OEM-endorsed solutions to independent repairers and dealerships for over a decade. Our solutions provide the capability for self-directed aftermarket QuickScan, True-OE OEM certified collision program scanning, RAP remote assisted programming and ADAS calibrations backed by live diagnostic support to complete a quality repair – all coupled with the ability to easily document the results through CCC software integration.”
Opus IVS, formerly known as Drew Technologies, surpassed 1 million collision scans ahead of projections this year and is forecast to hit 2 million scans in 2022. Its DriveSafe and ScanSafe diagnostic scan tools help collision shops improve cycle time while performing aftermarket pre-, in-process and post-scans, OEM scanning, flash programming and ADAS calibrations.
