ROSEVILLE, Minn. — Identifix has equipped its Direct Hit vehicle diagnostic tool with a new search-by-VIN tool. The new feature allows subscribing service departments to look up vehicle information by typing at least 10 of the vehicle’s 17-digit VIN.

The online diagnostic tool also features a new auto-suggest tool, which offers a list of applicable vehicles once a technician enters model and year information. Both features ensure shop owners have the exact diagnostic and repair information they need for the specific vehicle in their service bay, according to the company.

“A vehicle search by VIN has been on our customers’ wish lists for a long time, so we’re excited to be able to deliver this and other enhancements that help technicians and service advisors increase productivity,” said Aaron Cherrington, vice president of product management and strategy for Identifix. “As long as we continue to keep an active dialogue with both current and potential customers, we’ll always be well positioned to help meet the challenging demands of vehicle service and repair.”
