Web-Est LLC has announced the inclusion of panel refinishing and R&R times in PDR-Software, the paintless dent repair estimating software the company distributes.
The new data expands the information used by the PDR technician when writing an estimate. The part pricing and the R&R plus refinish value are displayed in the rate matrix, allowing the estimator to know when conventional repairs are more cost effective than a PDR repair. The additional data was recently completed and deployed by the product’s developer, Community Data Group LLC.
“We are pleased the final piece of the data puzzle has now been added to the software,” said Eric Seidel, president and CEO of Web-Est. “Having the replacement cost built in to the PDR rate matrix will save time in the appraisal process and net solid estimates the first time written. The additional data reduces cycle time for a PDR company’s insurance clients.”
PDR-Software is a Web-based estimating platform designed for both the hail management industry and the PDR professional who provide retail and wholesale services. The product is designed to work with mobile tablets for speed in the field and runs on a different database than Web-Est’s collision estimating software. A monthly subscription starts at $39 per month.
