RAP® – 2017 New Product Showcase Award at SEMA 2016

Drew Technologies was an exhibitor at one of the largest automotive shows in the United States, SEMA 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada. DrewTech was honored in receiving the 2017 Best New Collision Repair & Refinishing Product Award for their newest product/service: RAP® – Remote Assisted Programming.

Brian Herron, President of Drew Technologies, accepted the award, “We’ve been working toward this award for years… It’s an amazing feeling to get recognition from our industry and peers that we’re on the right path.”

The RAP® system consists of a self-contained hardware kit and remote service that allows any independent repair shop to update software in a car’s computer system(s) during service or when replacing parts. This system brings the same dealership capabilities to independent repair shops, while removing the burden of training and up front equipment expense. Drew Technologies’ RAP® system already has capabilities toward GM, Ford, and Nissan and will expand those capabilities further with other OEMs such as Toyota, Honda, and Chrysler.

Herron continues, “Every day we have customers successfully reprogram cars all over the world using our J2534 tools. But the introduction of this RAP® system provides access to a whole new group of technicians that need the capability to reprogram cars but don’t have the tools, training, or confidence. The RAP® system will give them immediate access, a per-use fee structure, and a success guarantee.”

Automotive experts stopped by the booth to see the award and talk about the new RAP® system as well as other J2534 products DrewTech provides such as the CarDAQ-Plus 2®, CarDAQ-M®, MongoosePro®, our emissions tool, IMclean®, and our newest heavy-duty commercial tool, DrewLinQ.
