Hoffman Estates, Ill.—I-CAR has announced it will extend free access to its Repairability Technical Support (RTS) Portal through the end of the year. I-CAR offered complimentary access to RTS until May 31 through its Covid-19 Industry Relief Program, announced in March.
“We recognize the strong value RTS provides to the industry and have seen a large uptick in use, in particular, during April through July, aiding our decision to extend this important resource free of charge to anyone in the industry throughout the remainder of the year,” said Scott VanHulle, manager, RTS and OEM Relations.
VanHulle noted a 23-percent increase in RTS engagement during July, over the same period last year. Launched in 2014, RTS is designed to offer up-to-date collision repair technical information through one hub. RTS is a free service to current Gold Class shops/organizations, technicians with I-CAR Platinum status, Sustaining Partners, and anyone who has trained four or more times in the past 12 months.
