Assured Performance Launches Data Management Services
Oct. 7, 2015—Assured Performance Network announced on Tuesday the official launch of its suite of data safeguard and management services exclusively for its certified shops. The data service creates and maintains a cloud data storage account for each of certified shop.
Assured Performance is providing three services for its certified shops that work in tandem: dataSAFE, dataManager, and dataIQ. Through the use of the data toolset, data is safeguarded and managed by the shop—not a third party. The tool set provides shops with various data management benefits including shop performance analysis, KPI reporting, and proof-of-purchase transactional reporting, but without exposing the shops confidential data.
The Assured Performance data services are engineered to report data analytics versus sharing the actual data with third parties. Shops are able to automate reporting for various rebate incentives, or use it for performance reporting for OEM certification. The data tools automatically create reports and display KPIs without anyone having access or the ability to manipulate the raw data.
The data management service has a unique approach to consumer protection and data privacy. All of the shop’s data, including confidential consumer information, never leaves the possession of the originating shop. This way, there is no processing of the estimate lines and vehicle repair data unless the shop does so using the dataIQ tools provided and activates the automated reporting.
Amazon Web Services are used to provide cloud data storage and safeguarding. Nearly 2,000 certified shops have installed Assured Performance services and now have dataSAFE accounts and KPI reporting.
“We have always been a leading advocate for shops to maintain their data privacy and ownership,” said Scott Biggs, Assured Performance CEO. “We’ve worked hard to find a logical solution to address the conflicting needs and concerns. We are proud to provide our Certified shops with data safeguarding with all of the KPI reporting they need and want.”
