New iATN Search Engine Released! (Plus a deal on Business+)
Posted to Open Discussion Forum on 7/30/2013 1 Reply

Hello everyone,

After more than a year of work, our new search engine is now available to all premium members. (Basic members can try out the search interface to see how it works, but will ultimately need to upgrade to a premium account to access the documents found.)

We have plenty of advances in store for it in the coming months, but it's such a huge leap beyond our existing search engines that we are going to start actively recommending that members switch to it.

You can use the new search engine here:


Highlights of the new search engine:

Search all of iATN at once: over 3.7 million documents and replies, including an additional 25,000 waveforms and other files that are unavailable in the traditional iATN search interface, at blazing fast speeds.

• Our VIN decoder and Smart Vehicle Builder allow you to quickly perform a vehicle-based search, often with just a few keystrokes. No more building a vehicle with half a dozen drop-down menus.

Vehicle-based searches default to similar engine packages, allowing you to find related documents for vehicles you may not have even realized were related.

• We expand your searches to include similar terms for the best matches possible, powered by Identifix's Supercharged Search® technology.

• Find messages from your favorite iATN members easily using author-based searches.

Quickly filter your searches by date using natural language, such as "in the last month" or "from Jan 1 to Mar 15."

If you have any feedback on the search engine while using it, click the "Feedback" link in the lower/right corner. On desktop browsers, you'll even be able to easily include a screen capture of your issue.

To celebrate the new search engine, we are running a special promotion for basic members until August 5. If a basic member upgrades to a Business+ Premium Membership using this link, they will receive 2 months free when they pay for their first quarter, a savings of $90. The Business+ membership is our newest option, and provides the account owner and up to 4 employees with premium access to iATN.

Here's a short, one-minute video showing the search engine in action:


Thanks for your support!
