Trucks are mighty computer-controlled, material-moving mammoths. When a monster of a monster problem rears its ugly head, it’s time for your service department to slay it and get your rolling iron back on the road. Of all the tools in your valiant technician’s quiver, the right scan tool software is one of the most important and easily overlooked.
Software doesn’t sound exciting, but giving new functionality to the tools your truck service pros are already using should.
