Panasonic Discusses use of Mobile Technology in Collision Repair Market at the 2010 NACE Conference and Expo

In the collision repair market today, shops must find a way to repair more cars, faster, with higher quality while reducing waste. There is a lot of pressure on shop owners to perform to the satisfaction of insurers and customers alike in order to ensure the future success of their business. Therefore, collision repair shops need the flexibility to adapt to continuously changing conditions and technology.

Mobile computing technology can have a significant and positive impact on the performance of collision repair facilities, taking productivity and customer satisfaction to a new level.

In this highly competitive market, deploying the right solution can increase performance, differentiate your company and improve loyalty. Selecting the wrong solution can cost your business severely. Collision repair shops must look for devices that are designed to withstand the repair environment and can survive dust, paint, fluids, bumps, drops and other hazards. In addition, devices that offer the appropriate wireless connectivity and integrated features (such as cameras) will enhance estimator and technician efficiency.

Chris Humphrey, national sales manager for PSC, will be speaking about this topic on October 10th during the 2010 NACE Conference and Expo, the world’s leading collision repair event. Chris’ session, “Deploy Mobile Computing Devices to Enhance Collision Repair Efficiency” (Course Code: SU27N), will explore how some shops have documented the ability to save 15 to 20 minutes per estimate and up to an hour on tow-ins or total losses through the implementation of mobile, wireless computers.

Software partner Audatex, a global provider of claims solutions, will also be discussing estimating and claim work technology during this session.

And if you’re going to be at the show, be sure to stop by our booth, #N1424, to check out Panasonic’s latest devices, including the Toughbook H1 Field.

We’ll also be discussing this topic in depth on toughbloggers following the show, so check back for more information.
