About us

Vibrate Software, Inc, an “S” corporation, was founded by Automotive Professor John D. Kelly in December of 1993. As an automotive professor at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah U.S.A., John became frustrated trying to teach his students how to diagnose automobile and truck vibrations. His students had a hard time remembering how to perform the mathematical calculations required to perform diagnosis using the tools of the day. John decided to try to automate the mathematical computations required to match the frequency of a vibration to a rotating component’s speed with computer software.

Those were the days of Microsoft DOS. Over the years we have always updated and upgraded our software to support the latest Windows operating systems and vibration diagnostic tools. Today, we have combined our 25 years of diagnostic experience, software, help and repair instructions, and tools into one compact package; the NVH app for your Apple or Android based smart phone. Jacob Kelly, one of John’s five sons, joined the Vibrate Software team in 2015 as the vice president and mobile platform development leader. There simply is no other software or App on the market that can compete with our complete package.
