AkzoNobel Launches Link Manager Software - BodyShop Business

AkzoNobel Launches Link Manager Software

Tool enables data flow between CCC ONE Repair Workflow and AkzoNobel MixitPro and QuickMix color management systems.

AkzoNobel Automotive & Aerospace Coatings (A&AC) has announced the launch of Link Manager, a new software tool designed to boost the efficiency of body shop operations. A&AC Link Manager enables data flow between CCC ONE Repair Workflow and AkzoNobel A&AC’s MixitPro and QuickMix color management systems.

Link Manager is a standalone software product that can be installed on a PC that hosts the color management software. Customers can then schedule periodic connections to the body shop management system, or connect manually at their convenience. Once Link Manager has been configured to use the customized interface for CCC ONE Repair Workflow, body shop operators will always have the latest vehicle information. Also, there is a generic interface that can be enabled for customers using other estimating or body shop management system packages.

“We see A&AC Link Manager as another tool to improve efficiency and boost productivity in body shop operations, very much in line with our entire process-driven body shop approach,” said Mike Sillay, business development services manager. “With the automatic update capabilities built into Link Manager, it can save the front office and the painter valuable time and improve accuracy with paint costing and tracking.”
