Software Bundle 7.4
Software Bundle 7.4 is now available for MODIS, SOLUS, ETHOS, Scanner and Vantage PRO. With the latest software, Snap-on has added 2007 GM and 2006 Asian Scanner coverage, as well as new coverage as far back as 1995.

  • Almost 5,000 more systems covered;
  • Read and clear 6,000 new trouble codes;
  • Display 5,000 additional data parameters;
  • Perform over 600 new bi-directional tests with MODIS, SOLUS and Scanner;
  • 11,930 Asian drivability real-world tips for MODIS, SOLUS and Scanner and 10,791 ABS tips added for MODIS and SOLUS; and
  • More than 4,000 new and 15,000 improved component tests through 2006 and as far back as 1983 for MODIS and Vantage PRO.

With Software Bundle 7.4, technicians have vehicle communications capabilities with 2007 GM products, plus in-depth coverage for Ford and Chrysler through 2006, comprehensive coverage on 2006 Asian vehicles, including vehicles that communicate on medium- and high-speed CAN busses, or controller-area networks, and with the optional European coverage, technicians can diagnose BMWs, Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen and Audi vehicles built from 1992 through 2005.

ShopStream Networked Software from Snap-on
Automotive shop owners and technicians can supercharge productivity and customer satisfaction with software featuring ShopStream connectivity from Snap-on Diagnostics. ShopStream integrates shop management, Scanner, component testing, and repair information systems for the first time to make every aspect of service and repair software-based and PC-driven.

ShopStream is a breakthrough workflow connectivity standard designed for both Mitchell 1 TeamWorks and ShopKey Professional software suites. The diagnostic software integrates with the shop management, estimating and repair information systems, increasing productivity and improving communication throughout the shop. Repairs seamlessly flow from vehicle owners to service writers to technicians and back again giving shop owners complete visibility to their business. Technicians seamlessly move between the repair order and their essential tools: Scanner, repair information and component test information. No more separate pieces of hardware and repeated vehicle ID steps.

With ShopStream-enabled software, the entire repair facility is now fully networked, including technicians. Everyone in the shop is literally on “the same page” with every vehicle. Now the power of the Snap-on Scanner, the expert information in Fast-Track Troubleshooter and comprehensive component test information are seamlessly integrated in a PC-based diagnostic module.

ShopStream integration means more than a collection of two or more connected computers. The integrated solution drives efficiency and productivity by making software as thoughtful about moving vehicles through the shop as it is about sharing information. Most important, it focuses on the vehicle owner’s experience. It’s the new way of servicing customers.

With ShopStream integration built into Mitchell 1 and ShopKey solutions, the entire repair facility can access integrated offerings that include shop management, flat rate times, parts databases, repair information, scan tool capabilities, and advanced customer retention tools – all backed by technical support, training, and financing. These solutions provide everyone in the shop with access to real-time information for improved decision-making. Shops can bring customer relationships to a new level, drive greater productivity and profitability, promote growth and reduce operating costs, and give their business the competitive edge it needs to flourish in new ways.

This increased productivity and ease of access is remarkably affordable for either existing users of Mitchell 1 and ShopKey or new users of the software suite. ShopStream-enabled diagnostic software is available only through Snap-on. Shop owners and technicians can talk to their Snap-on Diagnostic Sales Developers or visit www.shopstream.snapon.com for more information.
