PDR-Software Launches Free Version of Software

PDR-Software Community Version allows users to write, print or email up to 100 estimates a month; also includes new hail damage repair feature.

PDR-Software has announced a new, free version of its Paintless Dent Repair Software called “PDR-Software Community Version.” The free software has many of the same mobile estimating features found in the company’s pro version.

PDR-Software Community is ideal for tablets and allows the user to write and print or email up to 100 estimates a month. It includes complete access to the company’s PDR rate matrices database for comparing what the user charges versus what the rest of the average user community is charging. This feature ensures the subscriber is competitive in the marketplace. Part pricing and R&I labor times are only available in the pro version.

The PDR-Software Community version also gives the user full access to PDR-Software’s newest feature, “Hail-Book.” Hail-Book allows the user to create a business profile, including areas the tech is willing to travel to for storm coverage, and other skills and background information. The profile can be made public to PDR-Software hail management companies who are subscribers. Both parties can send a “Partnership” request, enabling the hail management company to connect the user to its network of technicians for future assignments at cat locations. The connection enables techs to have electronic access to claims assignments, rate profiles and track commissions associated at that specific cat location. Live connections requires the tech user to upgrade to the pro version, but not until they have received an assignment.

“Hail Book and the PDR-Software Community version give all PDR techs the opportunity to use the latest technology in their business,” said Eric Seidel, CEO of Web-Est. “Hail Book is a new, cutting edge way for techs to market their business without spending a dime.”
