  Vehicle System Reports

Performing a pre-repair scan can find hidden issues and make sure customers are aware of problems before any work is done, while a post-repair scan confirms for them that repairs and services were completed properly.

A pre-scan report, done prior to work taking place, will highlight all issues to your customers and show the need for further investigation, while a post-scan report after the work is complete will show that the repairs were completed properly.

The latest Snap-on diagnostic software update makes that process even easier by linking closely to the Snap-on cloud system.

Automatic uploading to the Snap-on cloud of Vehicle System Reports generated for pre- and post-scans can be carried out on the ZEUS Series™, TRITON Series™, APOLLO Series™, VERUS® Edge, MODIS Edge™ and SOLUS Edge™ platforms.

From the Snap-on cloud, they can be printed, e-mailed or sent via text to help strengthen customer confidence in your services - and they can be used to fulfill mandates by manufacturers and insurance companies for pre- and post-collision work as well.

  Snap-on Security Link

Last year we introduced Snap-on Secure Vehicle Gateway™ (now known as Security Link™) - a solution to support technicians working on vehicles that have restricted access. Secure gateway modules are being put in place by manufacturers to ward off unauthorised access and potential cyber-attacks. The presence of these modules means that access to certain diagnostic functions on the vehicle requires registration and authentication through an approved scan tool.The Snap-on Security Lin™ is designed to help navigate through this new process on 2017 and newer FCA models.
