From my perspective

Today, the world of collision repair is changing and changing rapidly. Telematics, Advanced Driver Assist Systems, Autonomous Vehicles, Pre and Post repairs scanning and system calibrations are here now and new technology is being introduced faster than at any other time.

 These advanced technologies are driving the need for shop’s to change how they think and operate. Without solid processes in place, shop’s will not be able to compete in this environment.
