Global Automotive Repair Leader Offers First Look at New and Improved asTech Solutions

PLANO, TX, September 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — asTech®a To fix™, today introduced breakthrough industry changes and expanded offerings that will dramatically streamline shop workflow with single access to diagnostics, ADAS information, calibrations and programming for one cycle of shorter repair and a more profitable workshop.

One of the most notable new offerings is asTech’s patented diagnostic rules engine, now enhanced with the ability to customize. Through the company’s ongoing and comprehensive research and development efforts, asTech has built a robust, proprietary rules engine that can suggest when an alternative to the OEM scan tool can be used safely and reliably. It identifies vehicles based on VIN and determines the best type of scan tool for the job.

asTech® The device offers a choice of two types of diagnostic scan: Remote OEM or OEM Compatible, which is an aftermarket scan that has been tested and validated by Repairify to work as accurately as the OEM scan tool.

The rules engine also allows shops to customize the terms of the recommendation to suit their repair workflow. The “shop rules” feature is especially useful for crash centers certified by a specific OEM that have scan tool requirements, or shops participating in insurance direct repair programs, which may also influence repair procedures.

“This combination of technology and expertise helps us fulfill our mission to provide customers with choice with confidence,” said Cris HollingsworthPresident of Repairify Global Holdings, Inc. “By simplifying complex repairs, we address talent shortages and shorten repair cycle times, helping the customer’s bottom line. asTech’s extensive capabilities automate decisions and enable our customers to choose the right tool for the right job Store managers can have increased confidence that asTech will help them make the best recommendation, with the added benefit of remote support of over 400 asTech certified technicians.

The new asTech also includes a powerful mobile app and the native ability to identify more calibrations using adasThink, the industry’s most advanced ADAS identification system. adasThink users can learn about required calibrations, available tools, and OEM-specified procedures to safely repair and calibrate ADAS systems. Identification takes just seconds by uploading the repair quote and VIN number.

These processes can also be further automated through available integrations with popular estimating platform providers, such as CCC Intelligent Systems and Mitchell International.

The improved asTech solution reduces key-to-key times, consolidates work in one place by enabling OEM-level calibrations and programming, and helps keep shops compliant with their direct repair insurance partners to obtain rates higher refunds.

New asTech features to be showcased alongside other Repairify product offerings at this year’s Specialty Equipment Market Association (“SEMA”) show November 1 to 4 in Vegas. Repairify will be offering product demonstrations at booth #31201 and demonstrating our ADAS calibration capabilities at ADAS-SEMA featured during the show.
