Nov. 25, 2015—VehicleOwnersGuide.com, a provider of technology, connectivity and information solutions to the collision repair market, announced the addition of two apps and new scrubbing rules to EstimateScrubber.com.
The new apps include an Axalta Coating Systems Refinish Materials Reporting/Invoicing app and a CollisionPartsSource parts exchange app. The new scrubbing rules include implementing the Collision Advice Sales Mix Guidelines and other scrubbing rules.
The Axalta Refinish Materials Reporting/Invoicing app reads Audatex, CCC or Mitchell estimates and Axalta’s ColorNet color retrieval system documents to generate a refinish materials invoice. The app also compares actual mixed quantities against Axalta guidelines. The app is provided at no extra cost to EstimateScrubber.com subscribers.
The CollisionPartsSource.com app lets shops list parts they have on hand. The parts are visible to other shops scrubbing estimates. EstimateScrubber.com subscribers can list parts at no extra cost. Both subscribers and users of the free reduced-functionality version can see listed parts when scrubbing estimates.
Finally, the Collision Advice Sales Mix reviews scrubbed estimates against the guidelines developed by Collision Advice. Materials, labor and parts metrics are compared against the guidelines. The analysis is provided at no extra cost to EstimateScrubber.com subscribers.
A new effective-materials rate review also allows repairers to determine the effective-materials rate/amount on estimates they receive that cap refinish materials.
