...the company’s commitment to keeping up with the latest innovations, like asTech’s remote scanning technology.

 

“asTech has a vice which connects to the car, where you can do scanning remotely,” he said. “It’s fairly new in the automobile industry. It allows us to perform the scans in-house without having to bring the car to a dealer.”

 

Modern vehicles present complex electronic systems that require extreme precision to function safely, the asTech website says. “Our ASE certified and dealer-trained technicians use our patented technology to ensure electronic vehicle systems are back to OEM standards post-collision repair.”

The staff at Frank’s Accurate Body Shop say they’re pleased with the upgrade to asTech scanning and calibration equipment.

 

They do this by drawing on “real world experience along with asTech training to pinpoint the exact cause of issues within a vehicle to recommend solutions and repairs that work,” the site says.

 

With a corporate vision to “be recognized as the automotive industry’s leading service provider for vehicle electronic systems,” asTech describes the company’s purpose as providing support to industry leaders by ensuring proper repair of automotive electronic systems.”

 

Its mission, it says, is to “provide superior quality automotive diagnostic and vehicle electronic services to professional repair organizations while delivering a service our employees are proud of and our customers value.”

 

Incorporating the new tech didn’t require much in the way of training to make the process at Frank’s Accurate Body Shop even more accurate than it had been, Rinaudo said.

 

“There’s not much involved but connecting the devise to the vehicle, and they remotely perform the scan,” he said. “It allows us in the pre-scan phase, before disassembly, to see if there are any diagnostic trouble codes, and then after it’s reassembled, to double-check again.”

 

Rinaudo said he knew when he first laid eyes on it the AsTech system was a good fit for Frank’s Accurate Body Shop.

 

“I saw a demo at another shop, and thought this would work for us,” he said.

 

And he was right.

 

“The electronics and tech in vehicles is steadily increasing,” he said. “This makes it possible to make sure the proper repairs are performed, saving time and increasing accuracy without having to send the vehicle out to a third party. We try to perform as much stuff in-house---where we can control quality and procedures---as possible. This helps with that, as part of our long-term strategy for keeping up with the times.”
