PMCLogic Now Available for Sherwin-Williams’ FormulaExpress

Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes has announced that paint and materials calculator PMCLogic now works directly with its internet-based mixing system, Formula Express. The software program is supplied by Macon, Ga.-based ComputerLogic, which has a 32-year history of automotive industry software support.

PMCLogic enables collision repair specialists to properly track and invoice all paint and materials used during the repair process. The program calculates the estimated costs of coatings and sundries consumed while replacing, repairing and/or refinishing each specific panel and/or structural section of the vehicle. This is based on the most current industry pricing from hundreds of paint and material suppliers.  

To reach these accurate estimates, details on items generally used for each affected panel have been benchmarked by ComputerLogic’s collision industry experts and are continually updated as materials and processes change. In addition, paint pricing is color specific – which increases pricing accuracy.

“There are pretty much only two ways in the collision repair business to increase profits – either reduce costs or increase sales,” says Troy Neuerburg, manager of marketing business services at Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes. “A paint material calculator like the PMCLogic program is the perfect way for both repairers and insurers to quickly come to an agreement on fair and reasonable reimbursement for paint and materials on almost any specific vehicle repair.”

Added Rick Palmer, president of ComputerLogic, “PMCLogic takes the guesswork out of paint and material costing. It’s one of the leading estimating programs that easily and accurately documents, itemizes and invoices for all paint and materials used in the repair process based on the most current industry prices.”
