Replies to TechHelp, where thousands of automotive technicians from all over the world exchange information and ideas, have exceeded the one million mark, setting a new record for the International Automotive Technicians’ Network (iATN).
TechHelp replies are solutions and responses to the nearly 200,000 e-mail help requests from automotive technicians on iATN, www.iatn.net. Help requests, replies and fixes are archived in the network’s FIX Database and are searchable by make, model, system, VIN, symptoms and many other criteria.
“One million replies is truly astounding and is the direct result of iATN members being willing to share their time and knowledge on the network to help other technicians,” said Brent Black, iATN founder and president.
TechHelp is a standard membership feature on iATN and is offered at no cost to automotive repair professionals. Access to the FIX Database requires a premium membership on iATN and with this upgrade, technicians also gain access to other databases in the network’s Knowledge Base, including Forum Archives, a Waveform Library and Live Conferencing Event Transcripts. A total of 2.4 million records are in the Knowledge Base.
iATN is the largest online network of automotive repair professionals in the world with 63,000 members from 152 countries. The members of this group exchange technical knowledge with their peers around the globe, sharing over 1 million years of experience.
The iATN Mission of Excellence: To promote the continued growth, success and image of the professional automotive technician by providing a forum for the exchange of knowledge and the promotion of education, professionalism and integrity. For additional information about iATN, visit www.iatn.net.
