Autologic has announced that it has entered into a licensing agreement with Volvo Car Corporation.
Autologic will have direct access to Volvo diagnostic data and technical information under the agreement, enabling the provision of comprehensive repair and maintenance on models from 2000 to the current year to date, through Autologic’s Assist cloud-based, fully integrated diagnostic solution. The licensing agreement, which covers the United Kingdom, North America, Canada, and the European Economic Area (EEA), will provide customers within these territories the benefit of receiving guaranteed genuine Volvo data, thus ensuring improved aftermarket continuity of safe, accurate and effective repair.
“The arrival of Volvo data coincides with the adoption of our new centralised Autologic knowledge database (ADX), which has been developed specifically to secure VM licensed data and repair and maintenance information (RMI). The licensed Volvo package will be available in January 2017, for customers to download directly to their AssistPlus device, ensuring that independent repair shops gain access to the latest validated information as provided to dealers. The Volvo data will feature heavily in the new customer journey, on a seamless route to gain accurate, secure, and safe diagnostic information, with access to our award-winning Fault 2 Fix Team providing Vehicle Diagnostic Support,” explained Mark Stamp, Autologic CTO.
The new agreement displays a significant investment by Autologic, as it moves towards developing stronger direct relationships with vehicle manufacturers, for the provision of genuine data.
Jeremy Fry, Autologic CEO added “As the only provider of a cloud-based, vehicle-connected, fault-to fix-solution, we have been vocal in advising the aftermarket sector of the momentous changes and challenges ahead, based on, among other industry influences, the Right to Repair Act, which requires vehicle manufacturers to provide the same information to independent repair shops as they do for dealers. The considerable investment in licensed data, by Autologic, accentuates our strategy for ensuring aftermarket repair shops can, through Autologic, easily access accurate data and expert vehicle diagnostic support, so that ultimately, they can find faults and fix cars faster. The agreement cements our vision and brings it into reality. And this is just the beginning of the new pioneering world of Autologic – watch this space.”.
