Assured Performance Network and Auto Damage Experts Join Forces
May 9, 2014—Assured Performance and Auto Damage Experts (ADE) have entered into an agreement in which ADE will perform the inspection and verification process for certifying repair facilities for the Assured Performance program.
Assured Performance provides a third-party assessment of “a shop’s ability to properly repair today’s complex vehicles back to the manufacturer’s specifications by having the proper tools, equipment, training and facility.”
ADE, a longtime provider of post-repair inspections and diminished value assessments, has recently expanded its operations to include training and facility verification, the company said in a statement. ADE will help identify whether facilities meet Assured Performance’s certification requirements.
“Assured Performance has developed a first-class program, which offers significant value and opportunities to its qualified members,” ADE founder and president Barrett Smith said. “We’re excited and proud to work with Assured Performance in helping quality repairers take advantage of the many benefits of the Certification program, including recognitions from numerous OEMs.”
