ALLDATA Goes All-In to Support SEMA360

Written by Autobody News Contributor


When it was announced the SEMA Show was going virtual for 2020, ALLDATA went all-in to support the industry’s foremost mechanical and collision repair event, developing content and activities to offer SEMA360 attendees an online experience unique to these unprecedented times.

ALLDATA provided access to its subject matter experts throughout the week and offered opportunities to interact with top executives.


This included hosting hourly roundtable discussions targeting issues paramount to shop owners and technicians, including “Using OEM Collision Procedures to Protect Your Shop,” “Behind the Push for Pre/Post Scanning” and “Three Tools to Manage your Shop Efficiently.”


In addition to its flagship products, ALLDATA Collision and ALLDATA Repair, the company provided attendees an in-depth look at its newest software solution, ALLDATA Shop Manager.


ALLDATA President Satwinder Mangat said it is a simple management system that makes it easy for shops to generate day-to-day workflow documents such as estimates, repair orders and invoices, with direct access to ALLDATA.


“We knew that a virtual SEMA360 wouldn’t take the place of the in-person event, but the goal was to provide a forum where current and potential customers could interact with ALLDATA representatives, schedule a live demo and learn about our newest product innovations,” said Mangat. “There’s no doubt it has been a challenging year...

....so we also offered aggressive SEMA360 savings on our industry-leading automotive repair software products.


"We’re hearing positive feedback from our customers, and we’re continuing to do everything in our power to support their business operations.”


Mangat said the ALLDATA team hopes that next year’s event will be back in Las Vegas with everyone in attendance.


“If not, the industry will have learned a great deal from this first-ever effort to host SEMA virtually as a result of the pandemic,” he said.
