ALLDATA Launches Product Updates in Response to Customer Requests

Listening to Customers Continues a Long Tradition at ALLDATA

ELK GROVE, Calif., Nov. 15, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ALLDATA LLC, the leading
provider of manufacturers' automotive repair information and solutions for
professional automotive service and collision repair shops, has released
upgrades to its ALLDATA Repair and ALLDATA Collision products in response to
valuable customer feedback.

"A lot of companies say they listen to their customers," said ALLDATA
President Jeff Lagges. "When we say it, we mean it. From the very beginning,
we looked at our customers as partners in the process. We have welcomed their
feedback, both complimentary and critical, to help us develop and deliver the
best information, management, and communication products in the industry."

In addition to a fresh look and feel, the new generation ALLDATA Repair S3000
and ALLDATA Collision S3500 user experience has been enhanced with additional
customer messaging; expanded, yet simplified search capabilities; improved
filtering by information type; and an improved saved article feature. Some
functionality has been repositioned for greater convenience. ALLDATA's legacy
repair products also have received updates.

A new "library request" button within both the ALLDATA Repair and ALLDATA
Collision products brings up a simplified form for requesting additional or
needed mechanical and collision repair data. ALLDATA maintains the largest
database of vehicle manufacturers' repair information in the industry and
information is continually being added. But for customers who need help
finding procedures for just-released models, pre-1982 vehicles, or other
obscure data, ALLDATA Research Library staff quickly responds with needed
answers.

"ALLDATA is staffed with people who know the car business," said Lagges. "We
employ many certified technicians, service writers, parts people, and shop
owners, as well as people who are actively involved in the industry. We know
what our products need to achieve, but we also understand that we can learn
from the men and women who are out there every day pulling codes, turning
wrenches, and sectioning frames. These updates are the direct result of
hearing what they have to say."
