Nov. 2, 2015—On Wednesday, the Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of New Jersey (AASP/NJ) hosted their 2015 Annual Meeting at the Gran Centurions Banquet Hall in Clark, N.J.

Over 150 people attended and listened to John Eck from General Motors (GM) discuss the company’s newest initiative,  MyPriceLink

Eck outlined the MyPriceLink program and addressed any myths that might be circulating.

“There have been a lot of misconceptions about MyPriceLink in the media and in day-to-day conversation,”  said Eck. “People are saying that GM is doing away with list prices. We are not. We are changing how list entry price is delivered to your collision estimating system utilizing new technology that we created with our partner, OEConnection. It’s an opportunity for us at GM to change the conversation with insurers, estimating companies and our dealers.”

Eck addressed the various causes of unease that MyPriceLink has brought to the local industry. At the end of the speech, Eck took questions from the audience and addressed how GM will fight the uses of aftermarket parts and how they will interact with insurers.
