BodyShopBids Named to ‘Cool Vendor 2012’ List

The website and mobile application that enables consumers to get estimates by photo has been recognized for "simplifying the car repair experience."

BodyShopBids, a website and mobile application that enables consumers to get collision estimates by photo, announced today it has been named a "Cool Vendor 2012" by Gartner, a leading technology firm.

Gartner recognizes BodyShopBids as one of four companies that demonstrate "how the automotive value chain is expanding to new technology areas that are centered on connecting the automobile with mobile consumer devices and the web." BodyShopBids is singled out for "simplifying the car repair experience with the use of a smartphone’s camera and online bidding process."

"We’re honored to be recognized by one of the top technology research firms in the world with a long track record of identifying new, innovative companies that have gone on to become industry leaders in their respective sectors," said BodyShopBids Founder and CEO Brad Weisberg. "This further validates our mission to bring convenience and transparency to the car repair process using technology."

Accessible for free via iPhone, Android and the web, BodyShopBids connects consumers in need of car repair with body shops through a bidding system. Consumers upload a photo of the damaged vehicle and receive several custom quotes from nearby body shops within 24 hours. The consumer can then select an estimate and book an appointment with the body shop online.
