Advanced Vehicle Management with ARI

– here’s what to expect when using this auto repair software

Vehicle Discovery

– easily find data for any vehicle make and model –

ARI leverages 3 different, state-of-the-art, vehicle databases in order to ensure a wide range of vehicle make and models. We cover close to 4M vehicle types between 1945 to 2021.

VIN Lookup

We use NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) database for VIN decoding as well as CarFax integration. This is one of the biggest directories of vehicles. It includes vehicle info such as trim model, engine variant, coolant type, transmission type, fuel specs, and more.

License Plate Reader

All you have to do is point your camera phone to the license plate and ARI will read and decode your license plate according to CarFax database. Please note that this applies mostly to vehicle manufactures in US after 1995.

Year – Make – Model Lookup

Find more info about your vehicle using just the year, make, and model. ARI connects to a huge database that contains close to 4 million vehicles.
