From 1 December, Repairify is providing new customers with the opportunity to access three months’ worth of free Remote Services with any compatible diagnostic device up to a maximum of 12 jobs in the period.
Garage and diagnostics equipment supplier Repairify has addressed the current chasm between the approximately 3,500 ADAS-qualified technicians in the UK and the 21,500 required to meet market demand for these services. The company says it can help businesses meet the dramatic increase in demand, set to continue as growth in ADAS-equipped vehicles rises, via the support of its own team of IMI-qualified technicians and the development of technology to support maintenance work on these cars. Phil Peace, managing director (SVP) international at Repairify Inc, told Tyres & Accessories that AI and machine learning has enabled the company to enhance its data to support its solutions that puts critical repair information into garage workflow.
Repairify will join Dinitrol at Equip Auto (28-30 September 2023, Lyon, stand 6 M 174) to showcase its latest vehicle diagnostics and calibration technologies. These tools enable repairers to maximise the opportunities presented by ADAS repairs by retaining the business inhouse and reducing key-to-key times to minimise customers’ vehicle downtime.
Repairify Australia Holdings Pty Ltd and Capricorn Society Limited have entered into a joint venture agreement to deliver “leading-edge remote automotive repair solutions to repairers across Australia and New Zealand”. Repairify and Capricorn have equal ownership of the joint venture, which will be branded as Repairify and distributed across Australia and New Zealand by Capricorn through the Capricorn Preferred Supplier Network.
Repairify has introduced a fully integrated end-to-end software support programme for workshops and garages. The programme enables its IMI-trained technicians to access asTech tools remotely, assisting them with software if they are encountering challenges while using the tools car-side. The new programme is available across its hardware product portfolio, helping technicians to overcome technical issues and complete jobs quicker.
Repairify has been awarded ISO 14001 for its Luton and Peterlee offices. It is the first company within the Repairify Inc group to achieve the accreditation for its environmental management system. Repairify met the required certification by ensuring its UK sites are compliant with specific environmental criteria and demonstrated strict monitoring processes and awareness of environmental policies. These include effective waste management, battery containment, spillage kits, energy usage, and fire regulations.
Repairify has expanded its technical sales team with two new appointments. The company said the additions would enhance its nationwide customer service and support, supporting its customers in utilising Repairify’s vehicle diagnostic and calibration technology to its full potential.
Philip Slater has been appointed by Repairify as international product manager to expand its overseas markets and “enter new territories with its portfolio of advanced vehicle diagnostic and calibration technology”.
Repairify is an advanced vehicle diagnostic and calibration technology company that includes the formerly separate brands asTech and Red. Speaking to Tyres & Accessories, company representatives explained how Repairify is “constantly researching the market, anticipating challenges, and acquiring new products to meet these requirements, and identifying opportunities to enable its customers to tap into potential new revenue streams.” In short, that means serving the market through current and future treads and new tools and software – including drive-over tread readers.
In November, Repairify’s US office, Repairify Inc, introduced plans to launch the Repairify Institute, a comprehensive technical training program for automotive professionals designed to ensure service readiness, in 2023.
Industry specialist Rob Neale has been appointed operations and workshop manager by Repairify to head up its workshop operation at its site in Luton. The goal is to create a technical centre of excellence to provide expert training and support for customers conducting vehicle diagnostic and calibration services.
Repairify will present its products for the European collision repair sector at Automechanika Frankfurt between 13-17 September 2022 (stand F23, Hall 8.0). The company will introduce several new intelligent automotive technology solutions during the show. The global company has acquired several brands within the sector as it has grown over the past years, including European diagnostics specialist asTech. Repairify will bring its latest diagnostics and ADAS calibration products to Automechanika Frankfurt.
Repairify has acquired Automotive Training Group (ATG). The US-based technical training company offers live and virtual classes to automotive professionals in the 50 states and internationally. It emphasises quality instructional materials and experienced educators. It is the latest company to join the Repairify portfolio of brands, assembled by private investor Kinderhook Industries to service all aspects of the auto servicing in the latest data-driven era.
Repairify is unifying its brands under the single name Repairify, with its new website www.repairify.co.uk designed to simplify its market proposition.
As a result, RED EU and RED Autocentres will be consolidated under the brand name Repairify, while the asTech remote solution will continue to be leveraged as a diagnostic brand name, driven by Repairify.
Repairify UK Limited has been awarded the ISO 9001 quality management standard following Red EU’s award earlier this year. According to the company, “this latest recognition reinforces Repairify’s continued investment to accelerate its scale and growth in response to the needs of the marketplace in the UK and across Europe.”
