Transtar’s Exclusive Technology Has Remotely Programmed Over 10,000 Vehicles
CLEVELAND, OHIO [October 22, 2018] – Transtar Industries, LLC
, an integrated portfolio of companies that manufactures and globally distributes automotive aftermarket products and solutions, has an exclusive partnership with Drew Technologies, the industry leader in vehicle reprogramming, to offer their Remote Assisted Programming (RAP®) Kit.
In the past, if a repair shop needed to reprogram a vehicle system as part of the repair process, they’d have to schedule an appointment at a local dealership and arrange to have their customer’s vehicle towed to the dealer. Or, a shop would need to purchase the expensive equipment and subscriptions required to program on their own and then keep up-to-date with training across multiple platforms and vehicle systems. With Transtar’s RAP® technology, shops can reprogram domestic and foreign cars in-house
, on demand, without purchasing equipment or training requirements. Transtar’s RAP® equipment is free to qualifying customers and repair shops pay only for individual programming events, which are performed remotely by Drew Technologies’ expert technicians.
This program has been an outstanding success with Transtar customers remotely programming over 10,000 vehicles to date
– saving countless hours of time and money.
The original RAP® Kit was released less than two years ago. The next generation, RAP®2, was recently released and will include the ability to program European vehicles very soon. The new RAP®2 technology will also enable an expansion of future service offerings that will include remote vehicle diagnostics.
