Durabook Helps AE Tools Keep America’s Drivers on the Road


To be successful and remain competitive, independent automotive repair shops must have the tools and knowledge to work on a number of different makes and models of vehicles. While OEMs provide them with software that walks them through how to properly diagnose and repair these vehicles, many times, the software from one OEM conflicts with another OEM’s, and the two will not operate together on the same hard drive. The challenge these shops face is to be able to run numerous software diagnostic programs without having to make a heavy investment in separate computers for each OEM.


Over 15 years ago, Olathe, Kansas-based AE Tools & Computers, a provider of OEM-level diagnostic solutions and dealer-level support for onboard computer programming to aftermarket auto repair shops, turned to Durabook Americas for assistance in coming up with a cost-effective way to overcome this problem. When AE Tool raised their engineering need to Durabook, Durabook listened and has always answered the call. Since then, several different Durabook rugged computer models have provided AE Tools with the perfect solution, the most recent being its S14I rugged laptop.


The two companies have forged a long-term working relationship that has served both well over the years. AE Tools can offer its customers purpose-built rugged computers that improve productivity, are cost-effective, and stand up to the daily grind of a busy repair shop. Durabook has the satisfaction of providing a long-time customer with a proven viable solution, dedicated product support, and unparalleled customer service.
