Repairify, Inc. (asTech) announced their support for the recent positioning statement released from Equipment and Tool Institute (ETI), Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA), and Auto Care Association taking a unified position on multi-brand scan tools in the aftermarket.

“We stand behind these organizations who play an important role in the development of practices and standards in the automotive industry,” said Cris Hollingsworth, president of Repairify. “The market has indicated the need for flexible cost options across the spectrum of automotive repair events. We believe that multi-brand scan tools, when validated for accuracy, can provide a complimentary approach to safely complete repairs.”

The statement was released earlier this month and solidifies the three organizations’ position on common diagnostic processes and was produced after consultation with subject matter experts in both OE scanning and multi-brand aftermarket tools. The intent of the statement was to make it clear to the industry that consumers and repair facilities are best served when multi-brand scan tools are available.

“While asTech is known for its focus on providing original equipment manufacturer (OEM) only tools, our extensive research has enabled us to develop a validation process that allows us to include access to aftermarket scans through our recently patented routing process while still providing the same accuracy and safety we are known for,” said Maurice Tuff, chief technology officer of Repairify. “We will be launching asTech Duo in the coming weeks, which will provide customers with the flexibility they need to meet their ever‐changing scanning, diagnostic, and calibration needs.”

The company states they have been able to identify when an aftermarket tool can be safely used and has incorporated this insight into its diagnostic process. The soon-to-be-released asTech Duo is said to provide collision and mechanical repair shops with access to the leading validated aftermarket and OEM scan tools so they can perform repairs efficiently, accurately, and at an affordable price.
