ALLDATA Announces Industry-First! ALLDATA Collision automated repair solution enhancement provides instant repair information at the time of the repair plan
Las Vegas, NV – November 5, 2009 - ALLDATA LLC, the leading provider of vehicle manufacturers’ service and repair information for professional repair shops, in collaboration with NuGen IT, Inc., announces the development of its automated repair solution which is a significant enhancement to its popular ALLDATA® CollisionSM repair product.
ALLDATA Collision provides collision shops with a single source for up-to-date manufacturers’ repair information. Now, the new ALLDATA Collision automated repair solution enhancement, working with NuGen IT Collision Data Exchange (CDX) software, will automatically link and retrieve the exact OEM repair information available for relevant repairs listed on an estimate. It is compatible with virtually all collision estimating programs on the market.
ALLDATA Vice President of Product and Business Development, Steve Gill, says, “The bottom line is that repair plans will be more accurate and will include the repair information that technicians require to fix the vehicle.”
“From a shop’s perspective, this is a giant leap forward in accuracy, efficiency and cost savings,” said ALLDATA Collision Senior Program Manager, Dan Espersen. “With this product, all the procedures related to an affected component will be linked automatically to the estimate without requiring a separate lookup.”
“The winners in all this are the repair shops, insurance companies and vehicle owners,” says Pete Tagliapietra, NuGen IT Business Development Executive. “Owners can drive away from the shop knowing that their vehicle was repaired using the most up-to-date manufacturers’ procedures available. There is no higher standard for quality and safety than that. NuGen IT is committed to improving operational effectiveness and efficiency which always translates to customer satisfaction. We are excited and feel privileged to have our relationship with ALLDATA as the leading single source for repair information.”
When collision shop or insurance company estimators export estimates from their estimating systems, NuGen IT instantly retrieves all applicable repair information from ALLDATA Collision. The detailed repair information is brought into the estimate to assure that all components and procedures are accounted for.
The automated repair solution enhancement was developed to help create accurate repair plans, help reduce the need for supplements, streamline operations, strengthen relations with insurers and assist the shop to accurately repair vehicles.
