z Benefits to ALLDATA and Partners Single supportable method for integrating with partners AAIA invites participation and extensibility of the standard Allows ALLDATA to focus engineering efforts on new innovations vs maintenance of several partner integration paths Gives partners options as they implement – lowers risk
z Telematics – Situational Awareness and Vehicle Relationship Management! Allows Diagnostics to begin as the event occurs Better scheduling of technician time for the vehicle/problem Research parts needed/availability Allows collaboration between the shop and vehicle owner to better maintain the vehicle
