The right tools can get you the right information and cut out the root cause guess work when you need it most. The fact of the matter is the biggest advantage of having the right diagnostic and repair solution in a fleet shop is the uptime it generates. These tools permit thorough repairs, which lead to healthier vehicles that experience fewer breakdowns and emergency repairs.

Fleets have two options for scan tools: OEM and aftermarket. An OEM scan tool focuses on software for just one make and component of a truck. An aftermarket scan tool focuses on a broader offering of software, makes and components. Which choice is right for your fleet depends on your needs, vehicle diversification and budget.

The catch is that aftermarket scan tools are going to be your best bet to cover all of your truck and supplier brands at one time, but OEM is more accurate. There’s no one size fits all when it comes to scan tools, so you have to take your specific operation into account.
