Sherwin-Williams Introduces Body Shop App for Consumers

Free app will allow consumers to retrieve contact information for Sherwin-Williams A-Plus Network shops as well as other information needed at an accident site.

Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes has introduced a new body shop app that consumers can use when they’re involved in a vehicle crash.

The new app will provide immediate access to the user’s friends and family contacts, insurance company or agent, vehicle identification data, local emergency services (police, fire, ambulance and hospitals), geographic location of the accident and helpful tips. It’s also capable of retrieving the contact information for nearby towing services, Sherwin-Williams A-Plus Network body shops and car rental locations.

“Any time you’re in an accident, it’s a very stressful occasion. Fortunately, most drivers now have their cell phones with them," said Troy Neuerberg, manager of marketing business services at Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes. "This new app will supply drivers with the data and contact information through their cell phone to make the entire post-accident process go as smooth as possible.”

According to Neuerburg, this app also can help drivers prepare an accident report and share photos from the scene of the incident. The new app is free for consumers and can be downloaded for iPhone and Android users from the App Store or Google Play, or by visiting www.sherwin-automotive.com
