Opus IVS has announced that it had surpassed one million collision scans in the USA, delivered through the new ScanSafe and DriveSafe family of products. This success was achieved by combining a comprehensive OEM scanning solution and its aftermarket QuickScan feature, and by integrating it with CCC ONE estimating software.
The result is a single tool, integrated into a shop’s workflow with scanning and reporting to help repairers deal with increasingly complex repairs, especially from ADAS-equipped vehicles. Its all-in-one tool is continuously improved by an in-house team of over 50 engineers and hundreds of other IVS staff members in seven offices.
“Reaching our millionth scan was accelerated by Opus IVS’ technology focus allowing us to bring wide coverage for OEM scanning combined by fast, easy QuickScan for certain pre-scan and in-process diagnostics where the shop decides an OEM scan isn’t needed,” said Brian Herron, President of Opus IVS. “We are seeing significant growth in our business, and we are on track to deliver over two million scans next year, helping customers to ensure that essential vehicle safety systems are functioning properly after collision repair.”
Opus IVS’ strong coverage for OEM scanning goes all the way back to the 1996 model year for some brands due to the experience and capabilities of the Opus IVS acquisition of Drew Technologies, who led the way in bringing OEM diagnostic and reprogramming applications to the aftermarket through participation in the development of SAE standards, OEM relationships and collaboration on Right to Repair efforts.
“Today Opus IVS still delivers OEM tools to dealerships for factory diagnostic systems, such as Toyota’s Techstream. and is proud to provide OEM-approved products by virtue of our long-term partnerships and licensing agreements with virtually every domestic and foreign car manufacturer,” added Herron.
Opus IVS acquired UK-based Autologic in 2018 for its leadership in diagnostics for complex European vehicles, further broadening its position with the 2020 acquisition of AutoEnginuity, which is recognised as a leading aftermarket scan provider in the collision industry.
