What is the return on investment from ADAS Equipment and Calibrations?
It's not exactly news to many that ADAS Diagnostics was a hot topic throughout 2019 – and so far, our prediction of little let-up moving into 2020, has been spot on!
But for many looking to invest in this state-of-the-art equipment, ADAS diagnostics has become the biggest technological headache of the year so far.
ADAS like most new technology when it is first introduced is an unknown. It is highly anticipated and can be viewed as another unnecessary expense. But with these sensors now commonplace on consumer vehicles, you risk falling behind the curve if not investing & missing out on revenue.
Revenue in ADAS Diagnostics?
ADAS has been around for a while, but the need to calibrate these systems has become far more pressing with demand now commonplace and many capitalising on this.

The great thing about ADAS is the data you get back. At a top-level for every install, for example, you can see just how many calibrations are being completed.
We have one customer who started offering ADAS calibrations using their system in July 2019. With the service still rare, they had people travelling hundreds of miles from big body shops as it was the only way they could calibrate.
To date (March 2020) they have completed over 162 calibrations at £225 a service.
That’s £36,450 in ADAS calibrations alone, meaning the system has more than paid for itself!
While this is an extremely simplified version of the potential ROI, the figures are all true & demonstrate with the help and support of Hofmann Megaplan just how quickly this new service could help your business grow.
Why wait to offer ADAS Diagnostics?
Many garage owners may feel with so many changes going on around vehicle safety, that any new equipment will be out of date within a few months. ADAS equipment has been expertly designed to continuously calibrate vehicles.
Digital system takes this as far as daily updates to board FOC over the air, so their ready to go when you are.
The biggest issue seen in the industry to date is a lack of knowledge and understanding from technicians on how to deliver accurate & reliable ADAS testing. As a result, training is paramount.
