Caliber Collision, Bosch Collaborate On Diagnostic Scanning

New OEM diagnostic scanning and calibration technology will advance Caliber's commitment to making safe, efficient repairs.

A leader in auto collision repair across 39 states, Caliber Collision announces a new strategic relationship with Bosch, the leading global supplier of automotive aftermarket components and service solutions. A next-generation diagnostic scanning and technology platform from Bosch is expected to be implemented in all Caliber Collision centers by the end of 2022. The Bosch product features new original equipment manufacturer (OEM) scanning software that will support the always-evolving needs of the collision and mechanical repair industries.

Additionally, the Bosch scanning innovation will help Caliber Collision continue to be an industry leader through streamlined diagnostic data and workflows, thus repairing today’s complex vehicles more effectively and efficiently.

“Adding new OEM diagnostic scanning and calibration technology by partnering with Bosch was an easy decision for Caliber Collision. It will enhance our collision technicians’ access to real-time OEM diagnostic data, ensuring all necessary repairs are identified and customer vehicles are safely and accurately restored according to OEM requirements,” said Caliber CEO and President Mark Sanders.

After an extensive evaluation process, Caliber Collision selected Bosch to elevate diagnostic scanning and calibration technology in its centers across the nation. Bosch was chosen because of its commitment to quality, innovation and company values that align with Caliber’s Purpose of Restoring the Rhythm of Your Life. Bosch is recognized as an exceptional provider in the diagnostics industry, is highly respected among OEMs, and offers scanning, calibration, live data access and complete bi-directional functions for most vehicle makes and models.

“Bosch is a game-changer in our diagnostic scanning and calibration offerings and will be a valued part of our Caliber Marketplace Solution platform – a holistic approach to vehicle repair that recognizes vehicle complexity is changing rapidly and drivers are seeking a single, trusted partner to repair their whole vehicle. This new relationship will enable us to better serve our insurance partners and customers by utilizing this new technology and tools,” said Sanders.
