DataOne Software creates mapping to AAIA's ACES standard

DataOne Software, a division of Dominion Dealer Solutions and a provider of vehicle content and automotive data solutions, today announced the release of its ACES mapping product.

With this launch, DataOne Software now maps its VIN-referenced automotive data to the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association’s (AAIA) Aftermarket Catalog Enhanced Standard (ACES) classification system for customers. DataOne Software ACES mapping provides a map of AAIA’s ACES vehicle, engine and transmission IDs to the corresponding DatatOne Software ID’s within its standardized vehicle data.

ACES is the North American standard for the management and exchange of automotive catalog and applications data. DataOne Software is a provider of automotive data services and VIN decoding software. DataOne’s ACES mapping is specific for each engine and transmission combination on the vehicle. As a result, it offers superior performance when compared to similar products that operate on vehicle-to-vehicle mapping alone. Users are able to decode a VIN to retrieve the applicable ACES and DataOne IDs, as well as detailed vehicle descriptions and OEM-recommended service intervals. ACES mapping can be delivered within DataOne Software’s VIN Decoder Web Service or separately as a standalone file.

“Combining ACES Mapping with DataOne Software’s VIN decoding services provides a solution for businesses that want to streamline parts orders or fulfillment processes. By quickly identifying the right aftermarket part for each vehicle, this integration also reduces expenses resulting from ordering incorrect parts,” stated Jacob Maki, general manager of DataOne Software. “The new ACES Mapping tool can be paired with DataOne Software’s OEM Service Schedules to power automotive service center scheduling and logistics. “
