Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes A-Plus Network is now affiliated with VehicleOwnersGuide.com, an online provider of blueprint documents that helps collision repair shops identify any missed revenues. Its unique estimating analysis tool, EstimateScrubber.com, can be used in the repair planning process to prompt estimators to include commonly omitted items and better identify the repair cost associated with estimate line entries.
EstimateScrubber.com is compatible with most estimating systems used by the leading insurance companies and allows it to print a PDF file of an UltraMate, Pathways or Audatex estimate. When this estimate printout is uploaded to EstimateScrubber.com the A-Plus Network member shop will receive a free, detailed P-Page analysis.
“Our new network contributor program with EstimateScrubber.com is a great tool for our A-Plus Network members,” said Troy Neuerburg, manager of marketing business services at Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes. “Besides checking estimates to help realize potentially missing revenue, the program can also be used as a training guide for our members’ estimators.”
Another benefit of this program Neuerburg pointed out was the program’s Estimate Compliance Reviews for Pathways estimating system. A-Plus Network members will receive their first 100 compliance audits for free. They can then continue the compliance audits at a special members discounted rate should they so desire.
The A-Plus Network is made up of an exclusive group of collision repair specialists who reflect the industry’s highest standards. Members have benefited from the program’s many business-building opportunities including: business management training through A-Plus University workshops; building insurance relationships by offering continuing education training to insurance agents; loyalty rewards points, marketing programs and Vision Group participation. There are also great benefits from an outstanding list of third- party contributors like VehicleOwnersGuide.com.
