Latest ProDemand Update – Estimate Guide & Vintage
The majority of effort in this software release was focused towards the Estimate Guide module in ProDemand, with improvements both to navigation and data within the module. Additionally, we’ve made a change to how you access our vintage information. See the list of features below for the details.
Component Passed into Estimate Guide: This new feature saves time by populating the estimate with the most probable component associated with the particular DTC you have searched for in ProDemand. For example, when you perform a code search in the 1Search module, and then navigate to the Estimate Guide to write a labor estimate based on your diagnosis, ProDemand will automatically use the most probable component associated with that code. No more manual searching or typing the components you need to write the estimate – the information is right there for you.
Search by OEM Part Number: ProDemand now allows you to search for the OEM part number using the search function in the Estimate Guide. This new feature saves you time if you are starting with the part number and need to find additional information related to the part. To use this feature, make sure you are in the Estimate Guide module and that you have selected the “Parts” tab in order to view “parts” results.
Updated Diagnostic Estimates We’ve improved the diagnostic estimating function in ProDemand with a more streamlined and consistent naming process for labor operations. We’ve also filled in gaps that may have occurred model to model. See our blog post for more details about this update.
Integration of All Vintage Information into ProDemand: Our entire set of vintage vehicle information is now available within the structure and format of ProDemand. Simply pick your vehicle — back to 1960 — using the same YMM selection as you would for other vehicles in ProDemand. Note: Because of this change, the Vintage module has now been removed from the module list.
