Audatex North America Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Solera Holdings Inc., has announced a new multi-year agreement with The Boyd Group Inc. to provide estimating software and related tools to support the MSO in the U.S. and Canadian markets.
The Boyd Group operates more than 200 locations across the four Canadian provinces under the trade name Boyd Autobody & Glass, and in 14 U.S. states under the trade names Gerber Collision & Glass, Pearl Auto Body and The Recovery Room. Boyd also operates Gerber National Glass Services, an auto glass repair and replacement referral business with approximately 3,000 affiliated service providers throughout the United States.
“Through an ongoing commitment to excellence, the Boyd Group is a leader in the collision repair industry and continues to build momentum as one of the fastest growing multi-shop operators in North America,” said Wolfgang Ahrens, managing director of Audatex U.S. “Audatex is pleased to extend our business alliance with The Boyd Group as we support their U.S. and Canadian operations with the industry’s most intelligent and complete estimating and collision repair solutions.”
Boyd and its predecessor companies have been Audatex customers for more than 25 years. More than 100 of Boyd Group’s collision repair centers will use Audatex estimating technology, leveraging features such as intelligent 3-D graphics, color-coded parts and digital imaging to ensure estimating accuracy and efficiency, as well as customer satisfaction.
“We have established and maintained a long-standing alliance with Audatex because the company continues to innovate and address the dynamic business and technology needs of our repair centers and employees, so that they in turn can better serve our customers,” said Tim O’Day, president and COO of the Boyd Group’s U.S. Operations.
