AudaExplore Releases Updated Estimating Software

AudaExplore has announced the availability of Audatex Estimating version 7.0, which delivers a range of data enhancements and compatibility with the latest operating systems and browsers, including Internet Explorer 10.

Most significantly, this new release of AudaExplore’s flagship estimating software has been optimized for use with Windows 8 tablet computers, allowing appraisers and collision repair shop personnel to easily manipulate 3-D vehicle graphics to quickly create accurate repair estimates from anywhere.
"Utilizing the advanced technology of Microsoft Windows 8 combined with Audatex Estimating’s tablet-optimized 3-D vehicle and parts graphics allows users to swipe-to-rotate, pinch-to-zoom and tap-to-select parts – capabilities available only to Audatex Estimating users," said Wolfgang Ahrens, managing director of AudaExplore.
Now available in the U.S., Audatex Estimating 7.0 brings additional powerful estimating features to Windows 8 tablets, including color-coded parts and substrate materials; AudaVIN vehicle identification technology; integrated access to AudaExplore’s vehicle-specific, option-driven database; as well as a wide range time-saving workflows.
“With support for Windows 8 tablets, along with other mobile, self-service and advanced technologies we’ve introduced to the market, AudaExplore is keeping the professionals we serve ahead of the technology curve so that they can deliver the fastest claims outcomes and best possible experience to their vehicle owner customers,” added Ahrens.

Existing Audatex Estimating customers will be automatically upgraded to Audatex Estimating 7.0.
