Roundup of 2016 ProDemand Product Updates

ProDemandUpdate_featuredOur ProDemand product development team was super busy in 2016, as reflected in the many improvements to our ProDemand repair information software over the last year.

As we reflectt on 2016, in particular we made great progress in our continuing efforts to speed up navigation, deliver more features and content, and provide real-world insights to complement the OEM data in ProDemand. The majority of these enhancements were in response to user feedback. We are listening and appreciate your ideas and suggestions for improvement.

We highlighted the “bigger” enhancements here in the blog, but there were also many dozens of “micro” updates that individually and collectively contributed to improving the user experience. Here’s a summary of the many major improvements to ProDemand that we talked about in the blog in the last year (click the headlines to read the full blog posts):

As you navigate through the SureTrack tab, you now have options to navigate to previous probable component and Real Fix menus using a link.

Probable Components

Real Fixes are now grouped by “Probable Component,” allowing you to see the list of components associated with the code or symptom, ranked in order from the most likely to the least likely component at fault.
