Efficient production is at the heart of every successful body shop. If shop floor efficiency is a concern, accurate information is key. Especially in the body shop business, information is everywhere, all the time. It is as fluid as paint and it changes by the minute. You may call this a dynamic environment, but it can also feel downright chaotic.
Understanding the complexities of today’s vehicles, coupled with meeting challenging consumer expectations and satisfying insurance partners’ expectations of cost containment are enough to keep the best repairers awake at night. Add to that the challenge of compressing the repair process into just a few days and you would probably welcome some assistance.
