The ability to automatically identify the correct vehicle in the diagnostic
software constantly improves. This ensures that the correct diagnostic
data is used when the diagnosis is performed. When ISI is used the
correct engine code is selected even if you make a mistake in the
specification of vehicle selection. In this way the human factor is
avoided and you can feel confident that the report from the diagnosis
is correct and reliable.

All OBD functions, like calibrations, adjustments and programmings, in
CARS and TRUCKS software have a comprehensive help instruction to
guide you through the work process. We constantly work to make our
products easier to use. One part of this is to make the information in the
software easy to read and understand. To achive this we continuously

Automechanica reflections

Published on Thu Nov 13 13:48:16 2014

 

 
 
AUTOMECHANICA

5 days, 4631 exhibitors, 140,000 visitors from 173 countries. Automechanica is big.

Again, we have participated in the recurring fair Automechanica in Frankfurt, Germany.

Automechanica is an international trade fair for the automotive aftermarket and one of the most important trade shows where the market's largest and most important players showcasing their offerings and innovations.


 
THE COMMUNICATION CONCEPT

AUTOCOM has participated a number of times and we have the last few years had the same booth space in Hall 8. The theme for this year's stand was "Powered by Sweden" and aimed to highlight the AUTOCOM's origin and history.

The goal of this year's participation was to show product offerings, introduce new features in the software and meet old and new distributors under pleasant circumstances.


 
THE EXHIBITION BOOTH

The booth was designed with a large meeting space in the middle surrounded by the world map, and product testing stations. On the back of the test stations, we announced features of the CDP+ and our software with links to sections in AUTOCOM´s brand new concept video.


 
AUTOMECHANICA
SUM UP


When we look back on Automechanica 2014, we can conclude that from AUTOCOM´s side we are very pleased with our participation. We have had many exciting new contacts, including visitors from the Middle East and Asia. Our new security solution attracted much attention and appreciation. We also highlighted our features ISS, ISI and ISU and gave them some well deserved attention.

Another positive thing, we heard from several retailers, was that many users, who previously used AUTOCOM clones, now see the disadvantages of pirated products and have switched to AUTOCOM original products. Needless to say this makes us overwhelmingly happy.

Release 1-2014 News and Links

Published on Fri May 23 10:55:29 2014

 

Differentiation
The CDP was introduced more than
10 years ago and was designed to
handle all known communications
types at that time.

The new CDP+ hardware enables
new possibilities and functionality
not available to the CDP due to
hardware limitations. As the
development of vehicle electronic
systems and communication
standards evolves so do Autocom
products.

Security USB Dongle
A big difference in 2014 Release 1 is
that it requires a Security USB Dongle.
This is to ensure that all valid users
have got access to the data they are
authorized to.

The Security USB Dongle is a
"plug-n-play" solution that replaces
the HW key. This means no more
hassle with codes that needs to be
typed in the installation.

The Security USB Dongle is activated
online, and can be activated from any
computer that has Internet
connection.

The Security USB Dongle is paired
with a specific VCI, but can be
moved around to many computers.

All valid users will be supplied with
a Security USB Dongle together with
the release DVD.

Many additions in CARS™
The 2014 Release 1 offers a large
number of new diagnostic
functionalities. More than 11 000
functions in over 300 models have
been implemented or updated.

...and TRUCKS™
The 2014 Release 1 offers a large 
number of new diagnostic functionalities. 
Nearly 3 000 functions in 180 models 
have been implemented or updated.

ADP 186 - END OF LIFE PRODUCT INFORMATION

Published on Wed Nov 20 13:15:51 2013

Background
Everything we develop is verified and tested on vehicles and on all product platforms. To maintain multiple platforms implies that a lot of time is spent on verification on these platforms. To make our development as efficient as possible, we need to limit the maintenance on the older generation products. This will in turn create a faster development time for 
CDP / CDP+.

Last update
As we have informed earlier, the last DVD release for the ADP186 will be 2013 Release 3. After this release, we will no longer update the software for the ADP186.

Repair and Service
The warranty for ADP186 will end 2013-12-31. We will still offer service and repair until
2014-06-30.

Reflections from AUTOMECHANIKA 2012

Published on Wed Oct 31 15:38:53 2012

Back from Automechanika and looking back, we can gladly say, “Yes, another successful fair.”

The fair was well executed with plenty of visitors and thanks to our appealing product showcase and our competent staff, we got great exposure of AUTOCOM and our products.
Visitors were interested our products like SOFTBRIDGE and many more but the thing that caught the eye of many, was the “Online Concept by Autocom”.
The concept was well received by many at the fair. An independent platform solution where the users do not need to download massive vehicle databases to their own computer is something that many have been waiting for.

We truly believe that the Online Concept is a product for the future and responses from the customers just go to prove that our customers’ expectations were met fully.
To be first out in the market before either the market or customer expects a product has been the driving force of our cutting edge development. Forerunners in various industries are adapting such practices to be on top leaders in their areas.For us this only means that we have to keep one step ahead of our competitors and customize and deliver the best, user friendly and most flexible solution to our customers.

AUTOCOM DIAGNOSTIC TEAM ON TOUR

Published on Wed May 30 09:38:51 2012


AUTOCOM's diagnostics team is always on the road visiting factories, workshops, and suppliers to collect data for newer software versions. We asked a few questions of Christer Larsson, responsible for the diagnostics team.

Why do you go on the road?

All car models are not available in Sweden, and that's why it is important that recording and verification of data for our diagnostics software are performed in the countries where there is good availability of vehicle models. When we're out visiting the customer we can also pick up on special wishes and see how our software is used and works in its right environment. This way we get a good idea of what the market needs, enabling us to include as much as possible in future updates.

Who do you visit?

That differs depending on if they are developers working with our diagnostics program for automobiles (CARS) or for commercial vehicles (TRUCKS) who are on tour. Those who work with TRUCKS often visit freight companies, workshops, and sometimes rental companies, while those who work with CARS visit workshops and dealers for new and used cars.

How is the work done?

Our diagnostic programs have three releases a year. The time between each release is our work period. Each new period starts with us reviewing wishes from different customers and looking at which vehicle manufacturers have released new model years and vehicle models, respectively. That information, together with our own thoughts about the updates, is the foundation for planning the time and place for recording, testing, and verification of data.

To save time we prepare as much as possible of the work at AUTOCOM without access to the vehicles, for our sake but primarily for the sake of our partners. Preparing a system may take 3-5 work days and each vehicle has between 10-60 systems so it had not been possible to do this work on-site with our partners. Well on-site we review what vehicles are available and how long we can have them for tests. Often we have to prioritize on-site since there is not enough time to test all functions we have brought along. We treat the vehicles with respect and nurture our contacts with great care so that we are welcome for the next update. When we return home we compile everything and correct any problems we have not solved on-site. After the release, we start all over again.

What's best about being on the road?

The best about being on the road is to meet our partners and the users of our products. We get a lot of feedback from the users who help us solve problems and prevent errors. Then it is very important that we get to work hands-on with the vehicles. It is one thing to sit in the office and simulate different events. When you sit in the vehicle you do not know what answers to expect since all vehicles are individuals that may behave in different ways.

What uses do customers have of your work?

Direct contact with the users in the workshops gives us insight into their reality. We find out what is required for the workshops to be able to perform service and advanced repairs in a more effective way. This way we get the information we need to develop our products and, in the future, our customers get better tools for their work.

Have you encountered any cultural difficulties?

A lot of times it is the language that plays tricks on us when we are on the road. Especially in countries where not everyone speaks English. For example, when we were in Italy, and after a long day we wanted to order a big juicy steak. Hungry as wolves, we could see the waiter come in with a plate of grilled vegetables instead.

MEET ONE OF AUTOCOM´S USERS

Published on Wed May 30 09:35:26 2012


”A SIMPLER AND MORE COMPLETE TOOL WOULD BE HARD TO FIND.”

We want to know what the users really think about our products, so we visited Johan Jonsson, Managing Director at Auto 4 Stad in Trollhättan, and asked him a few questions.

Why do you use AUTOCOM's products?

We have used AUTOCOM's products since we started in 2006. And I can't think of a single time that we've had any problems with their products. It just works. We use their products primarily because they are so incredibly user-friendly and complete when it comes to model years and car models, but also because it is very easy to learn how the products work, which makes things much easier when we hire new staff. A couple of days of training may be needed to be able to use competitor products, but with AUTOCOM's CDP for example, a new mechanic can be up and running in 10 minutes.

How do you use AUTOCOM's products?

We use AUTOCOM's products every day. Our mechanics use CDP for diagnoses and to perform simple troubleshooting in connection with ordinary vehicle service. But we also have employees who work full-time with AUTOCOM's ADP for more advanced troubleshooting such as parallel measurements, etc.

What's good about AUTOCOM's products?

A major advantage with AUTOCOM is that they are good at keeping their software updated. It is very seldom that any cars or models are missing. And if anything is missing, it usually appears in the next update. AUTOCOM is without a doubt best on the market when it comes to troubleshooting and ordinary service, and if anyone asked me what tool is needed if you were to start an independent workshop, the obvious answer would be AUTOCOM's new CDP+. A simpler and more complete tool would be hard to find.

What trends and challenges do you see in the future as a workshop?

Ever-increasing demands are made of independent workshops to be able to offer everything in one place. At the same time, customers expect it to be a better value for their money, with the same high service quality, or better, than brand-name workshops. Being both cheaper and better than brand-name workshops has been and will continue to be a challenge for independent workshops. And to succeed you need equipment that is fast, simple, and equipment you can trust. In the future, it is not likely that there will be many smaller specialist workshops. Vehicle owners do not want to have to drive around several actors, they want everything car-related in one place. Another trend is that more and more are moving out on the Internet. Booking systems for service have been in use for awhile on the Internet, and more and more 'apps' have appeared for car owners. When the technology has developed even further and businesses have learned to use it in the best way, this will likely see an increase.

New collaboration in vehicle inspection with VTEQ-Spain

Published on Wed May 30 07:25:57 2012

Text from Spanish collaboration partner VTEQs newsletter. 

VTEQ AUTOCOM COLLABORATION

VTEQ has started a collaboration with the Swedish company AUTOCOM www.autocom.se, vehicle diagnostics and service solutions. The main target of this collaboration is to study and define an action plan to start with the Testing of Electronic Control Safety Systems (ECSS) during PTI in some European countries. During the beginning of this month the VTEQ and AUTOCOM staff have visited some PTI companies in Spain, operators like PREVENCONTROL, CERTIO or BARCELEURO who have offered their facilities to allow the feasibility study for implementing ECSS into the PTI procedures.


As EGEA and CITA members, and after the direction adopted by these two organizations, of course the ECSS are part of the future in PTI, having every day more protection and security systems built in the vehicles. It’s a commitment for both companies to study everything concerning these topics and continue being a part of the most recent developments in PTI.
In a brief time we can have a “diagnostic result” from these visits and we can advance in the way needed.

We are pleased to have AUTOCOM, CERTIO, PREVENCONTROL, BARCELEURO and other companies close to us so as to being able to define and develop new PTI systems and procedures, we thank so much everybody involved in this project.

AUTOCOM CDP+ awarded with red dot award: product design 2012

Published on Wed Apr 11 14:37:13 2012

PRESSRELEASE

AUTOCOM Diagnostic Partner AB together with Designit AB convinced the international expert jury of the “red dot award: product design 2012”. After an evaluation process lasting several days, it received one of the coveted awards, assigned by a 30-member expert jury. Creative heads and manufacturers from all over the world had submitted 4,515 designs altogether to the renowned product competition. With its high design quality, CDP+ could inspire the experts. It received the globally sought-after red dot for its fine design language in the product design category.

CDP+ is AUTOCOMs new generation of communication interface for vehicle diagnostics. CDP+ is designed to endure all rough conditions with its protective rubber cover and protection caps. CDP+ has design features that offers more than meet the eye. Unique functions such as multi colour indicator and flight recorder are two of the many features that make the work at a workshop much easier. It’s the ultimate key to vehicle intelligence.

On 2 July 2012, the presentation of the internationally renowned quality seal will take place in the course of the red dot gala. More than 1,000 international guests from the design world, industry, society and the media will gather that evening in the Aalto-Theater, the opera house in Essen, in order to celebrate the highlight of this year’s competition. Afterwards, the CDP+ will be on display at a four-week special exhibition in the red dot design museum.

Professor Dr. Peter Zec, initiator and CEO of the red dot design award, pointed to the high quality level of the competition: “The most distinguished products of the respective branch of industry faced up not only to the tough competition this year again, but also to the critical eye of the jury. The experts thoroughly examined, tested and evaluated each individual entry applying the highest standards. With their performances, the laureates did not only demonstrate an extraordinary design quality but they also showed that design is an integral part of innovative product solutions. At this high level, the winners are able to increase their potential for success on the market considerably by purposefully using our design prize.” 


The award-winning products in the red dot design museum 

With more than 1,500 products on an area of more than 4,000 square metres, the red dot design museum accommodates the world’s largest permanent exhibition of temporary design. From 3 to 29 July 2012, it again invites to look at the traditional special exhibition of the award-winning products.

AUTOCOM CELEBRATES 20 YEARS OF SUCCESS

Published on Wed Dec 21 15:27:46 2011

AUTOCOM was founded in 1991, in a garage in Sjuntorp, just outside Trollhättan, by Bengt Andersson. Now, 20 years later, the company's world-class diagnostic products have put it firmly on the map. 
An ability to predict the future of the automotive and vehicle diagnostics industry, as well as highly talented employees, constitute two key ingredients in AUTOCOM's recipe for success.
The anniversary was celebrated with a cruise to Tallinn in Estonia.


Foundation and growth

To have started out from a garage in Sjuntorp in 1991 and 20 years later to be an international group doing business globally - that suggests we've been doing something right, declares Bengt Andersson, founder and former CEO of the company, now working on development issues at Würth development company.

The company has grown along with our customers, both large and small, who have provided information on what workshops have asked for while at the same time being given very valuable input on our development work.

Some of the factors that have contributed to the company's growth are the innovations it has introduced to the market. AUTOCOM introduced the first multiplex connection, pocket PC-applikation, Original data and connector with LED-lighting. 

AUTOCOM has grown by an average of 20% per year over the last 10 years, and if we can maintain this pace, we will see AUTOCOM secure a major international presence in the coming years. During 2011, AUTOCOM has employed another 9 staff, and its turnover has increased to almost SEK 100 million.

 

Factors for success

The company's success can be attributed to visionary thinking, intuition and an understanding of the user's workshop experience. Knowledge of how users perform diagnostics and a development department constantly at the cutting edge of technology create the conditions required to develop products and functions which, even before they are asked for, make diagnostics quicker, more reliable and more efficient. For vehicle owners, this means enhanced safety and less hassle on the road.

– One factor that has played a vital role is that, in the past, we concentrated on building the system around a Windows database, which meant that we didn't have a lot of hard-coding, and that was quite unusual in the early 90s.

– Another, and perhaps ultimately crucial factor for AUTOCOM's success has been its acquisition by Würth. This gives us endurance and knowledge which, along with their distribution network, completely change our presence in the market, explains Bengt Andersson.

 

Celebrations

To mark AUTOCOM's 20-year anniversary, the entire workforce was invited on a cruise to the beautiful Estonian capital, Tallinn. The event was a great success, with entertaining episodes in AUTOCOM's history presented during an evening of fine food and drink.

 

Moving forward

For AUTOCOM and its German parent company, it is important to preserve the company's origins. Swedish engineering has always has a special reputation abroad in terms of progression and innovation, and that heritage is something we want to continue to foster. Obviously, this goes hand in hand with knowledge and inspiration from our international partners.

– We are entering an exciting period with a strong owner, and this provides the right conditions to allow us to focus on what we do best: creating the best automotive diagnostic technology and the safest, most reliable conditions for vehicle owners. We will achieve this by continuing to ask questions and coming up with new, creative solutions while recruiting the cream of tomorrow's talent, states AUTOCOM's CEO, Lars Modig.

AUTOCOM´S PRODUCTS LAUNCHED IN NORTH AFRICA

Published on Mon Dec 19 16:18:34 2011

Moroccan TV and representatives from the technical university, the chamber of commerce and workshops were in attendance as AUTOCOM's new Moroccan distributor, Maroc Diag, launched AUTOCOM's diagnostic products for private and goods vehicles at a major event in Casablanca.

– We never dreamed we'd get this kind of attention when we decided to start investing in North Africa and Morocco, reveals Anders Malm, Sales Manager at Autocom. You can tell there are big things happening in this part of the world. Powerful forces are at work and we are pleased to be a part of it.

AUTOCOM's Sales Manager, Anders Malm, was accompanied in Morocco by Maroc Diag's Key Account Manager, Carola Nyvall. Here they answer questions about the market and conditions affecting vehicle diagnostics in Morocco.

Why are you choosing to establish yourselves in North Africa?
–AUTOCOM is currently in the middle of an intense period of activity, and is investing heavily in strengthening its global presence with a particular focus on emerging markets. Morocco is a good example of a market where AUTOCOM's products can make a big difference by offering quicker, more efficient diagnostics, and that means safer vehicles on the roads. The Moroccan vehicle fleet is a very good fit with the content of AUTOCOM's vehicle database - the ideal scenario for AUTOCOM's diagnostic products.

What is the situation in the Moroccan market?
–There are many European vehicles in Morocco - mostly French mid-range vehicles - and the fleet generally consists of newer vehicles. We see a lot of potential for our CARS and TRUCKS products, and are confident that Maroc Diag is the right partner for the job. Our aim is to become a widely recognised brand in Morocco.

Why has AUTOCOM chosen to work with Maroc Diag?
– Maroc Diag has the right industry contacts to sell our products, and they also offer customers excellent after-sales support. Maroc Diag sells our products primarily through training courses which they hold for workshop mechanics, however they also have their own sales network covering the whole of Morocco.

Maroc Diag works in an interesting way. They create demand for AUTOCOM products through training. Several workshops come together for training courses. There, they learn about AUTOCOM products, as well as how to carry out optimal diagnostics and get the most out of the products. They leave with practical knowledge that they can apply directly in the workshop. This creates benefits for users and a sound basis for the sale of diagnostic equipment.

How will you support Maroc Diag?
We will support Maroc Diag's operations by offering training for their staff, attending trade fairs and tailoring our products to market requirements. Our ability to tailor our products to the needs of the market is one of our main strengths as a supplier, and is appreciated by our own customers and suppliers all over the world.

The future
The future is looking very interesting in Morocco and North Africa. Countries are experiencing strong growth, new regimes have been born and democratic processes are emerging. You can tell there are big things happening in this part of the world. Powerful forces are at work and we are pleased to be a part of the developments.

NEW BUSINESS AREA - VEHICLE INSPECTION SERVICES

Published on Fri Jul 8 14:32:05 2011

The Vehicle Inspection Services business area has emerged as a natural development of AUTOCOM's range of products and services. 

"After having worked on multibrand diagnostics for over 20 years, we have acquired a lot of knowledge and relevant experience of working in relation to statutory vehicle tests and inspections. The statutory requirements placed on our products and services will primarily concern the environment and safety," says Martin Ålund, Business Area Manager, Vehicle Inspection Services. 

The business area will focus on offering niche products and services to companies and organisations that work on vehicle inspections in various ways. The services that will be offered include working as a partner on development projects, supplying knowledge and supplying content and software. 

AUTOCOM's product GENERIC has been developed for this purpose and is used by Sweden's biggest inspection body for statutory periodic inspection, Svensk Bilprovning. Vehicle Inspection Services will also work closely with vehicle makers, the police and the military.

We will soon present more information regarding our new businessarea, Vehicle Inspection Services here at autocom.se.

HOW CDP+ WAS DEVELOPED

Published on Fri Jul 8 14:31:31 2011

AUTOCOM's hardware department has been working for several years to develop the next generation of Vehicle Communication Interface – VCI, which is marketed under the name CDP+. In May, the new CDP+ was presented at AUTOCOM's distributor meeting in Stockholm before its commercial launch in July. 

CDP+ was developed in close collaboration with users in the workshop environment to ensure that it included smart functions that were in demand and also to understand the users and develop functions that are not yet in demand in some cases. 

In addition to future-proofing all technical components and improving all internal parts, we have also focused strongly on including functions that contribute to enhancing the potential for diagnostics. 

The primary function for this is Flight Recorder, which allows you to connect CDP+ to the diagnostics socket and take it with you on the road. Flight Recorder registers the status of all vehicle data and records any faults in connection with the specific situation in which they occur. This makes it easier to find intermittent faults. 

Another observation we made when we studied users was that it can be difficult to find the diagnostics socket in dark, tight spaces in vehicles. Therefore, we developed an LED lamp at the front of the contact. This is a small detail but it is very useful to our customers. 

In addition to these functions, we have also improved the physical design, integrated a Bluetooth antenna and fitted a smart attachment device to the equipment. 

"We have spent a lot of time on analysing and developing functions that make the working day easier for those who use our diagnostics tools. We are sure that we will exceed our customers' expectations with the new CDP+," says Martin Larsson, Development Manager in AUTOCOM's Hardware Development Department.

MEET LARS MODIG - NEW CEO AT AUTOCOM

Published on Fri Feb 4 15:41:49 2011

On January 1, 2011, Lars Modig will become AUTOCOM's new Chief Executive Officer, and departing Chief Executive Officer Bengt Andersson will take on the role of Business Developer. Most recently Lars worked at Würth Svenska AB in Örebro, as Financial and IT Director as well as Executive Vice President. Lars is not a new face at AUTOCOM. After several years on the board, he has gotten to know the company and many of the co-workers here at AUTOCOM quite well. On the matter of the decision, Lars answers: - When I was asked to take on the position of CEO at AUTOCOM, it felt like an easy choice. Taking over a well-managed company, with competent personnel, good customers, many very interesting projects, and new products on the agenda, you just can't say no, says Lars.

New leadership means change and here are a few thoughts from Lars.

What is it like to work with you, Lars?

Others should probably answer that question, but my answer is that I am a person who believes in the power of people and their will to continuously develop and improve. A part of my role is to guide so that this power, in the end, benefits our customers and that it's done in a business-like way. I have the ambition to be clear, communicative, and to give people the space and framework they need, so that this development can take place in the best possible way.

What is your and AUTOCOM's most important task, now and in the future?

Most important for AUTOCOM now and in the future is to offer products and services that our customers want. To succeed with this, we will work very closely with our customers and partners, to understand their needs and how they use our products. At the same time we are going to put a lot of effort into staying on the leading edge of technical development, so that we have effective product development. I think we have succeeded with that to date. We also have to keep our good company climate at the same time as we strengthen it, among other things, by identifying and recruiting tomorrow's creative colleagues. I want 2011 to have a lot of "Break The Limits". That we, every one of us, challenge ourselves in our daily work, challenge what we do, our company, and our products. That we question and dare to suggest new creative solutions. And that we do this in cooperation with our customers! That's what drives development forward, that's how we stay sharp and competitive.
