Identifix has unveiled its newest feature in Direct Hit: vehicle search by VIN. Subscribers can now access information even faster and more accurately by simply typing at least 10 digits of a vehicle’s 17-digit VIN when creating a new vehicle within the online tool. There’s also an auto-suggest feature that offers a list of applicable vehicles once a technician enters model and year information. Both new features ensure shop owners have the exact diagnostic and repair information they need for the specific vehicle in their service bay, the company says.
Delivering information that comes straight from the factory, Direct-Hit allows professional technicians to diagnose and repair vehicles with greater speed, accuracy and confidence without leaving the vehicle, according to Identifix.
“Our product features and functionality are driven by the needs of our customers. A vehicle search by VIN has been on their wish list for a long time, so we’re excited to be able to deliver this and other enhancements that help technicians and service advisers increase productivity,” said Aaron Cherrington, vice president of product management and strategy for Identifix. “As long as we continue to keep an active dialogue with both current and potential customers, we’ll always be well positioned to help meet the challenging demands of vehicle service and repair.”
