Audatex North America Inc. has released the latest volume of its industry trends publication, Audatex Directions. The feature article explains how the industry’s focus on employee retention and recruitment, coupled with increasing vehicle complexity, have fueled a new estimatics system at Audatex.
Audatex’s newest estimating system will feature 3D vehicle graphics that will provide users with built-in intelligence that supplements workforce knowledge to improve both decision-making and estimate accuracy, the company says. Audatex claims the technology can improve original estimate accuracy by an average of 8 percent.
Other articles in the publication examine the cost of high-tech safety features, pay-as-you drive insurance, paint and materials legislation, recycler expense control and quality management, and Audatex news and events.
The publication is available for download at www.audatex.us/audatexdirections and will also be delivered electronically to the company’s North American customers. A limited number of printed copies are available.
