RTS App Paves the Information Highway with More Accessibility

HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL, April 3, 2024 - I-CAR, the Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair, has taken a significant digital leap with the introduction of the Repairability Technical Support (RTS) app for mobile devices. This move signifies a shift from RTS's former online-exclusive presence to a more accessible platform, putting OEM Partial Part Replacement, OEM Calibration Requirements, technical news, and industry best practices right at the fingertips of industry professionals.

The RTS app serves as a comprehensive information hub, aiming to bridge gaps within the collision re-pair industry and provide essential and real-time support especially to technicians and those doing repair planning. Through RTS, I-CAR aims to connect with the entire collision repair industry to help close knowledge gaps, access technical best practices, provide clarifications on repair procedures, get the latest updates on emerging technologies, access OEM technical information, and simply respond to the ever-growing technical needs of our evolving industry.

“As the collision repair industry's technical education center of excellence, we are excited to be leading forward with the launch of the RTS app,” said John Van Alstyne, CEO & President I-CAR. “The RTS app was designed to make the job of collision repair professionals easier. Now, they can find the helpful in-formation they need to better perform complete, safe and quality repairs, right in the palm of their hand.”

Looking ahead, I-CAR plans to further enhance the app's capabilities based on user interaction and feedback, signaling ongoing innovation and responsiveness to the evolving demands of automotive re-pair. This commitment underscores the organization's dedication to equipping professionals with the tools and knowledge necessary to perform complete, safe and quality repairs as technicians navigate a dynamic industry landscape.

The RTS app is available for download Monday, April 8 on both iPhone and Android devices.
