Phoenix, Arizona — October 20, 2017 — Repairify, the company that makes the asTech scanning solution, and Nexsyis, a repair management and accounting platform, have announced the release of an application integration providing secure two-way, real-time communication between the two platforms.
The integration between the platforms will “dramatically streamline” the entire vehicle diagnostic and reporting process for Nexsyis shop management system users, according to a press release from both companies.
“The repair technician can request a diagnostic scan directly from the repair order within the Nexsyis shop management system and a request for service is automatically created,” said Frank Terlep, Chief Technology Officer for asTech. “The integration also allows shop personnel to communicate with asTech Master Technicians via two-way chat and mobile apps, and automatically attaches OEM generated diagnostic reports within the appropriate Nexsyis repair order folder.”
According to asTech and Nexsyis, the two-way integration is currently being implemented in a large MSO on the West Coast, and will be made available to all Nexsyis Collision users following SEMA.
Meanwhile, Repairify, the parent company of asTech, has completed the acquisition of Professional Automotive Diagnostics.
Professional Automotive Diagnostics, which provides mobile electrical automotive diagnostic services and programming in Pheonix, US, will continue to operate under the asTech brand.
Repairify said the addition complements the company’s current staff of technicians already operating in the Phoenix market, as well as in Georgia, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Ohio, Texas, Virginia and Washington D.C.
“We are very proud of what we have built here in Phoenix and thrilled to be joining asTech. We knew it was the ideal time to join the asTech team,” said Pete Garbe, owner of Professional Automotive Diagnostics. “As the industry grows, we understood our unique services would align perfectly with asTech’s vision to fix it right.”
Garbe will be assuming the role of Phoenix Market Manager, overseeing the company’s expansion in the US city’s market.
Doug Kelly, CEO of Repairify, said: “The addition of Pete’s mobile vehicle electronic service business will immediately help expand our existing team of in-shop field technicians, providing professional repairers more choice when it comes to servicing today’s complex vehicles.
“Given [that] Phoenix ranks as the fifth most populous city in the US, and its metropolitan area ranks [number] 12, it made perfect sense to add mobile capabilities in this market.”
The company is also expanding its field services business into Northern California this month and expects to be serving the Southern California market with mobile services before the year-end.
