• Performance Groups – Shop owners have the ability to benchmark their performance against non-competitive shops in their local area, using national Business Councils as facilitators and a new Web-based benchmarking tool.

• Performance Alliance – A network of nationwide repair centers with a consumer-facing Web presence, PA24.com, Performance Alliance is the DPS connects insurers, shops and vehicle owners.

• Tools – This offering consists of a suite of tools that can be applied individually or together to improve the way a shop markets and manages its business. Marketing tools, Operations SOPs and ProfitNet are some of the tools available.

“The alignment of our value-added resources under one integrated umbrella will go a long way toward helping our customers adopt and implement the full spectrum of the services we offer,” said Troy Weaver, collision services manager. “It is a monumental undertaking, and we are putting our entire sales force and jobber network through extensive training so they are fully equipped to assess customer performance issues using a ‘needs to solutions’ based consulting model, where they can offer a holistic approach to our interested customers.”
