Repairify, Autel Announce New Collision Solutions


Recommended Posts

rssImage-7a7c8e253ec14d51b5879e3cde879e55.jpeg

Repairify, a portfolio company of Kinderhook Industries, and Autel U.S., a wholly owned subsidiary of Autel Intelligent Technology Corp., recently highlighted their key partnership advances and announced “bold initiatives” for 2024. 

Repairify and Autel have enhanced the efficiency of the collision and glass repair shop workflow and documentation process by seamlessly integrating Repairify’s remote services and authentic OEM tool scans into the Autel Remote Expert platform. The integration, now available on Autel MaxiSYS Ultra series tablets and MaxiFlash XLink standalone communication devices, increases efficiency by reducing the number of in-shop tools needed to support vehicle diagnostics, calibrations and programming events, according to the companies.

This past summer, Repairify and Autel launched adasThink for Autel users, which provided collision and glass shops with pre-repair insights into required vehicle calibrations (based on scan findings) to help shops complete accurate estimates before the repair starts. This reduced the likelihood of supplemental charges, increased customer satisfaction, and improved insurance reimbursement times. 

In Q1 2024, Autel and Repairify will continue to enhance the value of their combined services for their users through the following planned releases:

  • asTech insights, which will provide shops with vehicle-specific AI-driven repair recommendations based on the diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) identified during the pre-repair scan.
  • Repairify remote service expansion, which will make dynamic and static calibrations available through the Remote Expert Platform.
  • New next-generation Repairify calibration rigs, manufactured by Autel, for in-shop and mobile-express providers.

“This is truly one of the most exciting initiatives in the history of our company,” said Cris Hollingsworth, president of Repairify Global Holdings. “Our customers have consistently asked us to deliver a seamless and integrated ecosystem of product solutions for their vehicle diagnostic, calibration and programming needs. The combination of Autel’s world-class product solutions with Repairify’s global leading technology, data, service and intelligence offerings provides shops the opportunity to service all aspects of vehicle repair through one product interface that drives maximum efficiency, increases customer satisfaction and ensures that vehicles are repaired safely, accurately and through a certified process based on OEM procedures.” 

“Autel is committed to providing its users with software and equipment that meet or exceed their expectations and comprehensive solutions that enable their businesses to thrive in this evolving and sophisticated vehicle repair marketplace,” said Autel CEO Chloe Hung. “When we developed the MaxiSYS ADAS IA900WA, it was with a single goal in mind: to redefine the industry’s approach to the service and repair of the modern vehicle and, with one system, develop a comprehensive workflow to enable technicians to take the vehicle from diagnostics and repair to alignment, programming, and calibration. This approach has helped our users provide their customers with superior repair and servicing of all vehicle systems, including vital safety systems. Also, it enables shop owners to see efficient key-to-key operations and financial success.

“Repairify offers our customers, specifically those in collision and glass repair, even greater efficiency with its information services such as adasThink and asTech Insights, access to its network of Remote OE services, software and tools, and insurance-ready and OE-certified Pre- and Post-Scan reports. We are proud of our partnership with Repairify and all the opportunities it has provided to our customers, and we look forward to working together to drive innovation in the aftermarket.”

      Dayco is the newest member of the Kalitta Motorsports family of corporate partners, and Kalitta Motorsports is the newest distributor of Dayco belts, the team recently announced.
      The 2024 NHRA Mission Foods Drag Racing Series begins March 8-10 at the Amalie Oil NHRA Gatornationals in Gainesville, Florida.  
      Through the new partnership, Dayco will have branding on J.R. Todd’s DHL GR Supra funny car, and Kalitta Motorsports is now the exclusive at-track distributor of Dayco 11-millimeter racing blower belts for nitro engines.
      Dayco and Team Kalitta will work together to expand the available Dayco blower-belt offerings in the near future, they said.
      The Dayco 11-millimeter blower belt is specially engineered for Top Fuel and Funny Cars with nitromethane engines. Featuring a hybrid carbon cord encapsulated in custom rubber compounds and patented low-friction PTFE tooth fabric, the belt offers one of the highest load ratings in racing and has helped numerous teams cross the finish line first, according to Dayco.  
      That success is due in large part to the Dayco team’s utilization of real-world track data to enhance its belt designs, the company added.
      “We are excited to kick off this new partnership with Kalitta Motorsports for the 2024 season,” said Jay Buckley, director of marketing, Dayco North America. “Theirs is a phenomenal team, and we can’t wait to see how they perform with the Dayco 11 mm belt installed on their funny cars.”
      “This new partnership is great news for Team Kalitta,” General Manager Chad Head said. “We are so happy to partner with a company that’s Detroit-based like we are. We strive to provide our race team with components that give our teams the best chance of reaching the finish line first. That’s really what drag racing is all about – running quicker and faster than the opponent, and we’re confident Dayco belts will make a positive impact on J.R. Todd’s DHL funny car. We look forward to a long relationship with Dayco that has potential to expand in the future.”

      Standard Motor Products (SMP) announced the introduction of 208 new part numbers in its January new-number announcement.
      This most recent release provides new coverage in 72 distinct product categories and 115 part numbers for 2022, 2023 and 2024 model-year vehicles.
      Standard’s emission-control program sees expansion with the introduction of vapor canister purge pumps for popular General Motors SUVs such as the 2023-2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer, and multiple EGR tubes covering 6.2 million vehicles.
      The Standard gas fuel-injection program also has grown with the release of new fuel injectors for GDI and MFI applications, as well as fuel-pressure regulators, fuel-pressure sensors, fuel-pump camshaft followers, high-pressure fuel pumps and more.
      Pentastar 3.6-liter engine oil filter housings may all look similar, but they feature distinct differences from year to year. Standard now offers coverage for the latest generation with coverage through 2024. Standard’s oil filter housing kits come completely assembled from the factory and include multiple design improvements over the original to address OE weak points.
      For powertrain-neutral categories, Standard has added 13 new ABS sensors, several parking brake actuators and Brake Pad Wear Sensors for vehicles like the 2023-21 Cadillac CT4 and heavy-duty General Motors trucks through the 2024 model-year.
      All-new QWIK-SENSOR TPMS multipacks of 25 are now available with rubber or metal valve stems. The kits include 25 individually packaged and protected QWIK-SENSOR multi-frequency TPMS sensors.
      Standard’s ADAS program continues to grow with the addition of 17 new park-assist cameras and 16 new park-assist sensors.
      Standard’s hybrid- and electric-vehicle program continues to expand with this release.
      Park-assist sensors are new for the 2023-2022 Mazda MX-30 EV, and ABS sensors are now available for the 2022-2019 Kia Niro EV, 2022-2019 Toyota Prius Prime and 2023-2019 Hyundai Nexo.
      Park-assist cameras are now available for the all-electric 2022 Ford E-Transit. Additionally, oil-pressure light switches are new for the hybrid 2023-2019 Lexus UX250h.
       “We’re starting the year strong, with 208 new numbers added to our best-in-industry product lines,” said Jack Ramsey, senior vice president of sales and marketing, SMP. “Standard and Four Seasons are committed to carrying this momentum throughout the new year, expanding our coverage for gas, diesel, hybrid and electric import and domestic vehicles.”

      KYB recently unveiled the KYB Parts Catalog app.
      While most mobile catalog apps only ask for the year, make and model when searching for part numbers, KYB said its app dives much deeper, requesting information such as engine size, trim package and drivetrain type when applicable.
      The additional levels of detail provide “an accurate and much narrower list of recommended shock-and-strut applications and part numbers,” according to the company.
      With the app, service writers and technicians can quickly search for the part they need without accessing a computer. The app also provides recommended part numbers for performance-upgrade shocks and struts, strut mounts, boots and bumpers if available.
      The app can recommend the closest retailer or wholesaler from which to order the part, KYB noted.  
      “The new KYB Parts Catalog app quickly provides repair shops with the right part number, helping to reduce repair time and opening repair bays quicker,” the company said in a news release.
      Those who were using the KYB Shocks app will be automatically updated to this latest version, KYB said. New users can download the KYB Parts Catalog on The App Store and Google Play.

      Litens Aftermarket announced its acquisition of Kenakore Solutions, a third-party logistics warehouse and distribution center in Perrysburg, Ohio, near Toledo.
      Kenakore, with three decades of experience, has been a key partner to Litens for the past seven years. Litens said the acquisition is “a strategic move by Litens to enhance customer experience and streamline distribution processes.”
      “Through integrating Kenakore’s well-established processes and systems, Litens is set to improve its overall customer experience through enhanced communication capabilities and increased flexibility that enables Litens to further meet diverse customer demands with ease,” the company asserted in a news release.  
      Kenakore’s proximity to major distribution routes via I-75 and I-80 gives Litens “the added benefit of seamless connectivity and efficient distribution across the United States.”
      With the completion of the acquisition, Kenakore’s distribution center will be rebranded as “Litens Aftermarket Distribution.” Encompassing 123,000 square feet of space, the facility is staffed by 40 employees and includes 30 shipping and receiving bays.
      The facility plays a pivotal role in kitting and distributing Litens Aftermarket products, serving as the primary distribution hub for Litens Aftermarket in North America.
      “We work closely with the team at Kenakore and are excited to bring them under the Litens umbrella,” said John Lussier, president of Litens Aftermarket. “This acquisition is a natural progression as we continue to strengthen our control over the customer experience across the aftermarket and underscores our commitment to elevating the Litens brand.”
      The acquisition aligns with one of Litens’ strategic-growth pillars, focusing on complete customer-experience management and fostering a seamless end-to-end journey, Litens added.
      The move follows Litens’ 2023 acquisition of Dolz, a Spain-based manufacturer of water pumps, “and is another step in Litens’ aftermarket growth initiative.”
