The Database Enhancement Gateway (DEG) announced that it has now successfully assisted collision repairers in the processing of more than 2,500 data-related inquiries.
“This is a proud time for the DEG,” stated Nick Kostakis, a member of the DEG Joint Operating Committee (JOC). “The DEG relies heavily upon members of the collision repair industry to utilize this incredible and free service. Reaching this tremendous milestone confirms that collision repairers are taking advantage of the tools the DEG has to offer our industry.”
Barry Dorn, fellow DEG JOC member, added, “It’s very exciting to see the DEG going strong and continuing to gain momentum; we all need to remember that every time the DEG assists us with processing of a data related inquiry, the correction is a global correction that improves the accuracy of collision repair data for our entire industry not just a single repair shop or repair job. When the ASA, AASP and SCRS came together to carry forward the work started by March Taylor by forming the Database Enhancement Gateway (DEG), we knew it would be an invaluable tool for collision repairers, and I am very proud to see the tremendous success the DEG has become and the value it continues to bring to the collision repair industry.”
“It’s really encouraging to see how supportive each of the information providers have been and continue to be.” Said Caroll Proctor, JOC member. “Without the support, cooperation and dedicated efforts of Audatex, CCC/MOTOR and Mitchell, the DEG would not be the success it is today. We would like to sincerely thank all that have been involved in the processing of DEG Inquiries; without your assistance we would have a lot of unanswered questions and the DEG would not be the incredible success it is today.”
“2,500 inquiries is an accomplishment we should all be proud of,” said DEG Administrator Bud Center Jr. “However, I am absolutely confident we can, and will, do better. There is still a very large segment of our industry that is not taking advantage of the free service the DEG provides. But, I believe that with the continued hard work and dedication of everyone involved collision repairers, information providers, industry publications, industry associations, etc. the word will continue to spread about the invaluable service the DEG provides and the number of collision repairers taking advantage of this service will continue to grow.”
