The technology solutions from AudaExplore, the US business unit of Solera Holdings, Inc. and a leading provider of software and technology solutions for collision repair and automotive insurance industries, simplify the claims process by enabling collision repair companies like ABRA and insurance carriers to communicate on one platform with little variability.

The latest renewal comes more than a year before the current agreement’s expiration.

“We’re grateful for our relationship with ABRA, and look forward to continuing to assist them with their technology needs,” said Gordon Henderson, vice president of Collision Repair Solutions, AudaExplore. “By providing a system that’s highly accurate and connected, we can greatly reduce waste in claims processing activities and help increase overall profitability for customers like ABRA.”
