ALLDATA to demonstrate latest shop technology at AAPEX

Oct. 25, 2011

Oct. 25, 2011—ALLDATA will participate in the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association's (AAIA) Shop of Tomorrow program at the upcoming AAPEX show in Las Vegas.

They’ll be showing how repair and diagnostic information can affect the future of the automotive repair industry at booth 3066 and booth 3265.

ALLDATA will demonstrate how a telematics device can enable communication between a car and its owner through iPad2, and the car’s shop management system. For example, notifications provide maintenance reminders and diagnostic trouble codes.

Technology such as iSHOP allows shop systems to share customer and vehicle data, as well as provide diagnostic results and other relevant information.

"Without standards such as iSHOP and ACES embedded into a shop's software and equipment, a shop may soon find it difficult to continue operating effectively," said Scott Luckett, AAIA vice president of information technology.

Presentations showing these technologies will happen each day of the conference at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. On Nov. 3 from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., a presentation will take place at the Venetian Hotel called “Inside the Shop of Tomorrow and Aftermarket Telematics,” which is part of the AAPEX Learning Forum.
