Autodata makes suppliers appy

A new app has been released enabling aftermarket suppliers to integrate all Autodata content into their own solutions.

Autodata supplies technical data to the automotive aftermarket. Previously, its content was only available in raw data format or through Autodata’s own products.

However, Autodata Integration means all the content from more than 70 modules covering automotive data, service schedules, repair times, graphics and wiring diagrams across 80 vehicle manufacturers can be embedded into other products and applications.

Max Lienard, Autodata head of product and market development, said, ‘We realise that different sections of the aftermarket might have unique requirements for a specific block of our wide ranging content.

‘Autodata Integration caters for this market and provides a way for businesses to take only the information they require and embed this into their own solutions. So whether they’re working with parts catalogues or the very latest connected car technology, we are now in a position to provide a solution.’

Brad Simmons, CEO at ClearMechanic, one of the first businesses to benefit from the Autodata API, said, ‘Connecting with the API was an incredibly easy process and delivered the exact solution we required. Our customers now have access to the most comprehensive, reliable and accurate technical information available.’
