BASF’s VisionPLUS Performance Group program now is I-CAR-approved.
In 2017, each performance group member will receive seven I-CAR Platinum points for meetings they attend, helping them maintain I-CAR Platinum status each year.
“Our Performance Group community is growing and getting stronger each year,” said Craig Seelinger, BASF VisionPLUS program manager. “We continuously strive to develop the best-performing and most profitable collision shops in the country, and this first-in-the-industry approval from I-CAR demonstrates the value these meetings bring to BASF customers.”
Last year was a strong one for growth and profitability across the board for performance groups, according to BASF. Members meet several times a year to discuss current industry issues, best practices, profit improvement and insurance relations.
“BASF has been an invaluable partner of ours for more than 10 years,” said Jason Bartanen, I-CAR director – Industry Technical Relations. “The BASF Refinish performance groups strengthen this commitment and emphasize the need for continuous business process improvement. We’re excited to reach BASF students in a new way, and are happy to support and expand the I-CAR BASF management training.”
BASF VisionPLUS University classes were I-CAR-certified in 2016. Certifying the performance group meetings was the next evolutionary step and provides deeper insights into the shops’ business practices, BASF said.
