Identifix Adds Several Enhancements To Direct-Hit

Identifix-Solera-Logo-300x154Identifix Inc., a leader in vehicle diagnostics and repair, has once again made substantial enhancements to Direct-Hit, the company’s online automotive service tool. According to Identifix, this latest round of improvements makes Direct-Hit’s information database even more comprehensive, giving repair shops the ability to perform critical, everyday functions with a single tool.

The upgrades include:

• Links to the International Automotive Technicans Network (iATN) from Direct-Hit’s vehicle home page, pairing the real-world fix database of Direct-Hit with the automotive professional community of iATN – all-in-one, seamless user experience. iATN, Identifix’s sister company, complements Direct-Hit’s information with TechHelp, which is a community of technicians posting questions on vehicle issues and exchanging helpful suggestions and solutions, according to the company. iATN also offers more than 20 discussion forums, training resources and a waveform file library to help technicians advance their automotive knowledge.

• Fully interactive color wiring diagrams, standardized across all OEMs and available for the majority of vehicles for model years 1985-2015. This upgrade elevates the utility of Direct-Hit by providing the level of diagram quality and clarity required by technicians as they work on vehicles with increasing complexity. New diagrams are detailed with location and number descriptions, circuit tracing and partial or full diagram printing, in addition to displaying information in a single view.

• Vintage service and repair data from Chilton dating back to 1960. Users can access service manual information and technical service bulletins from Direct-Hit’s diagnostic Hotline Archives, or from the vehicle home page. With coverage for domestic and import models, this brings Direct-Hit’s total vehicle coverage to more than 98 percent of all U.S. vehicles on the road today.

“These new enhancements are much more than simply adding data to our existing online tool. They’re part of our greater mission to provide automotive repair professionals with the tools they need to keep up with the complexity of the vehicles they service, without compromising the efficiency and accuracy that their customers demand,” said Jeanette Dorazio, vice president of product management for Identifix. “This isn’t the first time we’ve expanded our offerings beyond our signature real-world diagnostics, and we’re going to continue evolving our products with the singular objective of delivering high value and return-on-investment to our customers.”

The company also recently marked its 50,000th online subscriber with a contest called the 50K Giveaway. Identifix will award five $10,000 prizes at random to Direct-Hit subscribers who submit a Hotline Archive Confirmed Fix by Oct. 4. Direct-Hit’s subscriber base has increased by 67 percent in four years.
