PPG expands PaintManager compatibility

Jan. 24, 2011

Jan. 24, 2011 — PPG Industries’ PaintManager software is now compatible with most shop management systems, the company announced this week.

The move is meant to help shops track paint costs more easily by allowing them to use their preferred management system in conjunction with PaintManager. The program manages the color formulation and mixing operation in the collision center and monitors and manages the cost and productivity of a paint operation. It also provides quick access to information needed to make decisions about job costs, material usage, mixing efficiency, inventory and more.

PPG uses its Paint Shop Interface Program, also known as Repair Order Costing (ROCO), to interface PaintManager with existing systems. The program reads repair orders and pulls them directly to PaintManager for instant reference.

PaintManager is compatible with numerous shop management systems including A.B.W. Tracker, Auto Claims Solutions Repair Tracker Interactive, CCT’s CC3, Mitchell ABS, Enterprise, New Era iAutoFocus, Rome Technologies CompleteShop, Summit Shop Management System and others.
