ALLDATA Launches Repair Planner

The new software tool automates repair planning for collision shops with OEM accuracy.


ALLDATA announced the launch of Repair Planner, the newest addition to the company’s integrated collision repair platform.

ALLDATA Repair Planner is a timesaving software tool that automates the repair planning process and helps shops plan necessary inspections and structural repairs with original equipment manufacturer (OEM) accuracy.

It works with the three major estimating systems and integrates seamlessly with ALLDATA Collision® for one-click access to related OEM information and procedures.

Benefits to shops include:

Saves hours of research time: ALLDATA Repair Planner reviews an estimate in seconds, flagging OEM-specified structural repairs and identifying repair information line by line.

Access to OEM-accurate vehicle repair: Graphic icons indicate OEM information in ALLDATA Collision associated with a particular job, including technical service bulletins (TSBs), diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs), service precautions, specifications, diagrams, paint codes, locations and more -- everything shops need for safe and accurate collision repairs.

Helps limit liability: ALLDATA Repair Planner calls out critical OEM procedures, ensuring shops never miss required repairs and vehicles are repaired back to OEM standards according to the manufacturer’s own criteria. "Vital Repairs" describe the OEM-specified inspections and repairs required after a collision, including high voltage system disable/enable.

“We are constantly developing solutions to help technicians find the OEM information they need faster, improve accuracy and expedite the collision repair workflow,” said ALLDATA President Satwinder Mangat. “Repair Planner dramatically reduces the time users need to spend researching OEM information and aims to add a layer of protection for shop owners by calling out exactly what’s required to repair vehicles back to factory standards."

Seamless integration with ALLDATA Collision: Repair Planner requires a subscription to ALLDATA Collision. Targeted specifically to auto body repair shops, ALLDATA Collision delivers industry-leading unedited OEM data, including body and frame sectioning, handling of new materials, evolving technologies such as hybrids and panel replacement, and more. It features the award-winning advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) Quick Reference tool and offers coverage for 44,000 engine-specific vehicles, more than 95% of vehicles on the road today.
