In essence, WorkshopData enables the professional mechanic to diagnose, maintain and repair modern vehicles, be they cars, light commercial vehicles or trucks. It can be presented in many compelling ways. These variations on presentation include displaying the data in our own familiar and much respected form, or tailoring it to suit customers’ requirements with their own branding, layout and colours through data exchange services.

The HaynesPro team consists of more than 200 professionals who work from offices in the Netherlands, the UK, Italy, Spain, France and Romania.

In 2016 the Haynes Publishing Group acquired OATS Ltd, which is now run as part of HaynesPro. OATS has developed a comprehensive equipment and lubricants database that supports customers from across the lubricants marketing and supply chain. These customers range from original equipment manufacturers, oil companies and lubricant distributors to end users such as workshops, motor parts resellers and garages.
