Audatex Estimating System Will Automatically Default for Interior Clear

The Automotive Service Association (ASA) announced that Audatex is working on changing the default for interior clearcoat in Audatex Estimating. Audatex Estimating currently does not default to two-stage for interior, it must be selected by the user if applicable, Audatex Associate Vice President for Industry Relations Rick Tuuri said.

It does not default now because of an automated paint decode feature within Audatex Estimating. When the paint code is entered, the system automatically decodes the color and the system being used (single-stage or two-stage).
 Audatex Estimating is set up to default to two-stage for exterior if a paint code is entered or not. But, the current default is not automated for both two-stage exterior and interior.

Tuuri told members of ASA’s Collision Division Operations Committee that Audatex changing the default and hopes to have the issue solved by October.
