ALLDATA overview

What is ALLDATA?

ALLDATA is a cloud-based OEM diagnostic suite that helps automotive businesses conduct vehicle inspections based on repair information provided through interactive color wiring or OEM diagrams. Technicians can generate high quality images, view diagrams for inspections, highlight or hide components, and toggle between OE and non-OE diagrams for comparison.

Shop owners can use the ALLDATA Diagnostics solution to conduct vehicle DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) scans, export pre-and post-scan PDF reports, and access relevant repair articles. Using the ALLDATA mobile application, technicians can read and decode VIN, zoom-in or out on diagrams for analysis, migrate from an identified DTC to the required testing procedure, and utilize OBDII diagnostic to view P-codes, live sensor data, emission levels, and more. It also includes a shop management module, which helps businesses store details about customers, vehicles, and parts, prepare estimates, repair orders, and invoices, schedule jobs, and track technicians' time and costs.

ALLDATA provides access to a variety of collision OEM procedures such as sectioning, structural adhesives, panel replacements, or ADAS and sends notifications to mechanics, ensuring vehicles are repaired according to factory specifications. The software also offers integration with various third-party applications including QuickBooks, myCarFax, Demandforce, MechanicNet, and Worldpay.

Although the prices kept going up the software had a lot to offer. Estimating and invoicing all in one.

Pros
This is software for Auto Repair shops. I love the fact you can look up step by step instructions on how to do a repair.

I didn't like the price of the software.

fair. tech support is very good .but i can't keep calling tech support for simple problems ( too much time wasted)

Pros
the parts locating system.especially when i'm looking for a hard to find part that i was'nt able to find on other sysyems

Cons
i find their estimating portion is terrible. they tried to sell me an upgrade estimating program ( more money) & i found it to be useless& cancelled the free trial after 2 days use. also most repair programs offer licence plate to vin & car make & model. funny part is they are owned by autozone which utilizes this function.& when i questioned them prior to purchasing this product they said it will be available shortly.seven months later still no upgrade

It did the job when we had it, but regret not getting Mitchell1 to save money and ease of use.

Pros
Alldata has almost all the information needed.

Cons
The organization of the information is not very intuitive and can lead you down a deep rabbit hole that you find your way back to.
