Sterling Adopts ALLDATA Collision and Mechanical Data

Sterling Autobody Centers Inc. announced today that they have signed an agreement with ALLDATA that will place ALLDATA collision and mechanical repair data in all of their stores.

“We are excited to bring ALLDATA’s comprehensive repair data into the Sterling network”, said Nick Notte, Sterling’s President.  “ALLDATA information, along with that of I-CAR, Tech-COR and others, becomes yet another tool to ensure the facilitation of informed and quality repairs, the first time”.  Notte also sits on the board of directors of the National Auto Body Council (NABC).  “NABC’s mission is to ‘enhance the image of the collision repair industry’.   Equipping all of our stores with the necessary tools to continue satisfying our customers with quality repairs, facilitated in record time, wholeheartedly supports that mission”, said Notte.  

“ALLDATA Collision allows auto collision shops to repair vehicles to Original Equipment Manufacturer standards,” said Wayne Mitchell, ALLDATA Director of National Accounts. “The detailed procedures can help cut cycle times, reduce supplements and provide proper documentation to consumers and insurers. ALLDATA Collision is designed to help a shop increase its overall profitability.”   

Sterling was one of the first consolidator networks of collision repair facilities to attain I-CAR Gold Class status and remains a Gold Class business today.  Said Notte, “As difficult economic times forces many collision repairers to close their doors, more repairs will become available to those repairers who are prepared to address the complicated technology built into vehicles today and into the future.  ALLDATA is a logical solution for Sterling.  We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship in Sterling’s quest to become the solution of choice for collision repair”.
