AirPro Diagnostics and asTech Driven by Repairify have been announced as 2024 approved vendors for vehicle scanning and diagnostics for the BMW Collision Repair Network.

“We are proud to partner with BMW and assist their certified collision repair facilities while utilizing the factory ISTA software,” said Josh McFarlin, president and COO at AirPro Diagnostics, in a company news release. “The labor crisis being experienced globally and here in the US only further cements the value our brand specialists bring to shops across all manufacturers.”

The Integrated Services Technical Application (ISTA) software provides remote diagnostic scanning, programming, and cost-effective ADAS calibration solutions, its release said. It enables technicians to access vehicle information, diagnostic procedures, and repair instructions from BMW.

“By integrating ISTA software, BMW collision repair facilities can realize streamlined diagnostic workflows, improve repair accuracy, and enhance customer satisfaction,” the release said.

Samantha Milo, Marketing, Strategy and OEM Relations at Repairfy also confirmed asTech is an all-in-one device that connects to OEM tools, such as BMW.

“With that connection, you get a true OEM scan, performed by one of our certified technicians for that manufacturer and after the scan is completed, you’ll also receive a copy of the official OEM tool scan report,” Milo said in an emailed statement. “Plus, every OEM scan you perform with asTech technology is covered by our industry-exclusive warranty.”

She said that shops accessing every OEM tool via asTech save on costs, storage, maintenance, and upgrades.

“We have partnerships and certifications with virtually every major OEM and our customers are able to use asTech devices to meet the scanning requirements of a significant number of certified collision networks,” She said. “We have coverage for over 95% of the car parc including EVs like Tesla and luxury vehicles such as BMW and most recently, Maserati.”

BMW did not respond to a request for more information but did recently announce the two tools as approved vendors during its BMW Certified Collision Repair Conference.
