ALLDATA was founded in 1986 to meet market demand for OE repair information. A group of forward-thinking individuals in Elk Grove, California, envisioned how automotive technology would soon transform the vehicle repair industry. These experienced automotive professionals, knew that shops would need easy, up-to-date access to reliable information. As computer technology took hold, ALLDATA began compiling the largest single source of OE information available.
From the beginning ALLDATA has put the customer’s needs first. Many of the initial employees are still with ALLDATA and continue to put their heart and quiet passion into its products. How ALLDATA products are delivered has evolved, but ALLDATA continues to drive the industry with expertise and determination. Today, ALLDATA is the industry standard, used daily by more than 300,000 technicians worldwide.
In the US, ALLDATA has expanded its product line to include manufacturer-correct diagnostic, repair and collision information, business tools and support services for the global automotive industry. In 2011, ALLDATA established operations in Europe to offer its best in class, OE repair information to European shops. This is the first time ALLDATA’s products are available in multiple languages: English, German, Spanish, French and Italian, offering repair shops a depth of information not available before.
In 1996, ALLDATA was purchased by AutoZone to provide the best combination of service & repair information and parts. ALLDATA Europe was founded in 2009 to meet the demand from independent repair shops for unedited original repair information straight from the vehicle manufacturer – a service that was non-existant in Europe beforehand. In 2011, ALLDATA Europe began to prepare its ALLDATA Repair product for the European market.
The ALLDATA brand was launched in Europe at the Automechanika 2012, where ALLDATA Repair was introduced to a wide public audience for the first time. Headquartered in Cologne, Germany, ALLDATA Europe comprises a team of specialists and an Info Center, where customers can make individual requests to obtain original repair information not (yet) available online.
New features and access to 18 vehicle brands make ALLDATA an essential repair tool for multi-brand repair shops.
Cologne, Germany – August 26, 2014 – ALLDATA Europe, the leading provider of manufacturers’ repair information for the automotive repair and bodywork industries, has announced its participation at Automechanika 2014, where it will demonstrate its expanded capability to provide repair and bodywork shops with critical diagnostic and repair information.
Online Software Offering OE Repair Data Directly from the Automobile Manufacturer
Cologne, Germany – March 1, 2013 – For years, inter-trade organizations have requested that multibrand repair shops gain full access to repair and service information from vehicle manufacturers. The EU has even regulated this claim by law through Euro5/6. ALLDATA Europe GmbH, a subsidiary of U.S. based ALLDATA LLC, is offering this information to European multi-brand auto repair and service shops through its flagship product, ALLDATA Repair.
“This has never been seen before in Europe: comprehensive, unaltered and unedited data, identical with the OEs.” explains ALLDATA Europe Managing Director, Uli Zehnpfenning. “The depth of our data through this product is completely new.” Since mid-September, ALLDATA Europe has beta tested ALLDATA Repair with a number of multi-brand repair and service shops. The tests concluded that shops using ALLDATA Repair were more efficient during the repair process due to the fact that all the manufacturers’ OE data is standardized, accessible online 24/7 and is available through ALLDATA’s intuitive common user interface. The information, diagrams, recalls, and Technical Service Bulletins (TSBs) that are accessed through the product come straight from the manufacturer and are never edited or redrawn. This allows the shop technician to repair
automobiles to the manufacturer’s standards.
