COMMACK, N.Y. — Autologic Diagnostics has announced a new partnership with WORLDPAC to offer more independent service centers access to dealer-level diagnostic solutions for 15 import carlines, including BMW and MINI, Land Rover, Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, the Volkswagen Audi Group, Volvo, Peugeot, Citroën & Renault and Rolls-Royce.
The Autologic diagnostic tool is designed to replicate the functionality of those used by manufacturers’ dealers, enabling independent garages to provide comprehensive servicing in their own workshops including coding and flash programming. In addition, Autologic supports independent garages through training and technical support provided by factory-trained master technicians and specialist software engineers. Software is currently available for Land Rover, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar, Volvo, Porsche, Volkswagen Audi Group, Peugeot, Citroën & Renault and Rolls-Royce vehicles.
“It is important that WORLDPAC connect our customers with the resources needed to remain successful in the aftermarket. We believe our advanced-level technical training complemented with professional OEM level tools creates an opportunity for the independent service center to grow their business and to remain competitive. Our partnership with Autologic is based upon us offering the independent repair professional the very best solutions when dealing with the advanced complexities of today’s vehicles,” said Mario Recchia, Sr. VP of WORLDPAC marketing.
Kevin FitzPatrick, Autologic Diagnostics U.S. CEO, commented, “Autologic has worked alongside WORLDPAC for a number of years and is delighted with the official partnership. Autologic is focused on delivering a high-performance diagnostic tool and providing an exceptional level of technical support to our customers. Through this partnership with WORLDPAC, Autologic users will now have better access to dealer-level diagnostic solutions and subsequent training resources, further supporting their own businesses as independent service centers.”
Autologic functions, including coding and flash programming combined with features such as retrofits, conversions and fitment of aftermarket products, surpass the functionality of other aftermarket diagnostic tools as well as select dealer tool features, according to the company. Information is displayed on a large touch-sensitive screen through a simple menu structure that is supported by help screens. Autologic software packages are available independently or as multiple packages run on the same Autologic hardware base unit.
