Tips for Purchasing a
Diagnostic and Repair Tool
A purchase worth
the investment

A diagnostic and repair tool is a significant purchase for a fleet who performs
any level of maintenance and repairs
on their trucks. This single purchase
influences uptime, technician efficiency, and the safety of their drivers and
those with whom they share the road.
Initial costs for these tools typically
exceed a few thousand dollars. With
these costs in mind, decision-makers
within a fleet need to carefully evaluate their options and select a product
that provides a positive return on their
investment.

Features and coverage

Whether you own and operate a single
truck, run a repair facility, or manage
a fleet with thousands of vehicles,
you need a solution that helps you
diagnose an entire fleet in a single
application. Simultaneously diagnosing all components empowers faster,
thorough repairs that help maximize
uptime and improve safety.
Coverage and features should be
updated multiple times per year to
keep pace with the rapidly changing
technology in the industry. Evaluate
tools with commonly needed bi-directional tests and advanced features
like Fault History; a unique feature
to Noregon's JPRO® Professional that
shows technicians historical fault data
to help diagnose recurring or intermittent problems.

The importance
of hardware

Considering many laptops and electronic devices become obsolete after
just a few years, it's risky to trust
refurbished hardware to run such an
essential in-shop application. Search
for kits that contain new semi-rugged
devices that can stand up to harsh
shop conditions. Consider a company
who is authorized to handle warranty
work and repairs on your devices to
minimize any downtime if issues to
occur on your devices.

Technician education

Ongoing education that improves efficiencies has never been more critical
than it is during a technician shortage.
Fortunately, intuitive, education-driven
diagnostic and repair solutions are
helping newer technicians perform the
work of master mechanics.

When evaluating options, ask about
built-in educational tips and features
that help technicians solve problems
with less reliance on their more experienced counterparts. For example,
JPRO Professional includes a feature
called Repair Mentor that helps guide
users down the correct diagnostic path
to locate the root cause of issues.
Finally, learn about available training
options before you purchase. Training
resources such as detailed videos,
interactive webinars, educational articles, and official certification programs
should be available for technicians to
keep their training up-to-date on their
own schedule.

Summary

An in-shop diagnostic and repair tool is
a significant purchase - treat it as such.
Conduct research, evaluate tools that
include hardware to last many years in
your shop, determine which features
are needed to repair the trucks in your
fleet, and select a tool that teaches
technicians and improves their skills.
Uptime goals are critical to success,
and the right tools in the shop will help
you meet, or exceed, those goals.
