Feb. 2, 2010--AutoWatch has release_notesd a new design of its online portal allowing vehicle owners to see digital images of the progress on collision repairs.

The new design allows vehicle owners to link their repair photos to a Facebook account to be seen by family and friends. Viewers of the photos can click to view more detail, which then displays a page providing information about the collision center performing the vehicle repairs.

“We have found significant interest in our new capability to link AutoWatch on
Facebook,” said Dave Henderson, AutoWatch CEO. “Shops tell us that they’re looking for ways to capitalize on the tremendous growth and power of social media, but simply don’t have the expertise or time to make it happen. With this new capability, we take care of that for shops, automatically.”

Facebook has more than 350 million users, according to the Facebook website.

“We believe social media presents a valuable new opportunity for shops to market
themselves,” Henderson said. “We’re not simply asking the friends and family of a vehicle owner to come to the body shop website, we’re bringing the shop to them.”
