How to Utilize OEM Repair Data
As modern vehicles become more and more complex, collision repair facilities have been left scrambling to keep up—new investments in equipment, technology and training, as well as altering already-ingrained processes, have become the norm for facilities looking to stay on the leading edge. The industry has shifted quickly; what can independent shops do to ensure they have a viable business model for years to come? It starts with OEM repair data.
In the first installment of the newly launched FenderBender Webinar series, sponsored by Robaina, some of the industry’s leading shop operators will look into how collision repairers can utilize the information they need to make safe, proper repairs while being fully reimbursed for their work.
You will learn how to:
- Make the proper investments for the OEM repair information, training, equipment and certifications that best meet your business’s needs
- Implement a repair process that allows your team to perform safe and proper repairs every time
- Create the documentation and tracking methods necessary to ensure full reimbursement
- Build a business model that will be sustainable for years to come
