Auto Techcelerators Joins Opus IVS™ to Create ADAS Services Leader
Published Oct. 31, 2022
Opus IVS™, a global diagnostics, ADAS calibration, programming and on-demand remote expert support leader, on Oct. 28 announced the completion of the acquisition of Auto Techcelerators, the leader in ADAS identification, calibration and ADAS safety system verification software through their popular ADAS CoPilot™, Calibration CoPilot™ and Test Drive CoPilot™ product suites.
The newly acquired company counts many leading automotive repair shops and organizations among their customers and is led by its multi-time founder and 40-year industry icon Frank Terlep.
Auto Techcelerators is the recipient of a recent U.S. patent for ADAS test drive verifications, and his organization is fulfilling its mission of changing the way calibrations, diagnostics and test drives are performed, managed and documented forever.
"The trifecta of CoPilot offerings is growing fast and combining with Opus IVS gives us the scale necessary to& serve our customers better. We couldn't have asked for a better partnership to carry out our vision" said Terlep.
"Frank has distilled 40 years of industry knowledge into a high value software suite that is seeing rapid adoption in the ADAS services and calibration industry," said Brian Herron, CEO of Opus IVS. "We congratulate him on his rapid growth and welcome the entire Auto Techcelerators team to the Opus IVS family where we look forward to achieving Frank's vision with the full support and resources of Opus IVS."
While Opus IVS will continue to offer Auto Techcelerator's products to the market, it also plans to merge multiple Opus IVS products with the CoPilot suite to deliver the industry's most complete and integrated end-to-end ADAS, calibration and validation solution.
Auto Techcelerators has been named a finalist in the SEMA Launchpad, the ultimate product pitching contest for entrepreneurs. Two finalists will be announced Nov. 2, with the final pitches on stage at the newly revampe SEMA Show Industry Awards Banquet on Nov. 3.
ADAS CoPilot™ is the industry's only mobile app and web-based ADAS and calibration knowledge, information and repair procedure platform.
Calibration CoPilot™ is specifically designed for "hub and spoke" ADAS service and calibration centers to help them operate a profitable and paperless business through features like integrated scheduling, automated invoicing, visual dispatching and more.
Test Drive CoPilot™ is the world's best way to properly perform, document and validate that a vehicle's ADAS systems operate as designed after the vehicle is altered, repaired, aligned or calibrated.
