Efficient Production Management = Profit.
There’s a major difference between having vehicles in the repair production flow, and knowing where vehicles are in the repair production flow. When you are in control of your repairs, it makes your operations efficient, and customers happy, which can turn into increased profits.
A Powerful Visualization of Current Work in Progress.
The shop marketplace is becoming more complex than ever, and the demands on shops to be able to manage the production process is now more important than ever, as customers, insurers and repairers are looking for ways to reduce the time it takes to repair damaged vehicles. You need a way to report and react on body shop production key performance indicators (KPIs), including Cycle Time, Severity, Rental Expenses, and Customer satisfaction scores.
If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it.
Take Control of Your Shop
If a customer entered your shop today, would you be able to tell them the repair status of their vehicle? Being in control of your repairs can be the differentiator between you and the competition. Answering “No” to any of these key questions indicates that you could improve production management.
- Do I know where all vehicles are in the Repair Process?
- Are there any vehicles outside of the estimated repair timeline?
- Do I have a plan to manage and de-risk the potential for delay and negative impacts to my cycle time and customer experience?
- Am I allocating resources to make sure delays are managed appropriately?

With our new Production Management, you can manage and update the current status and location of in-process repairs in order to keep staff informed of the repairs’ progress and to better manage and influence the outcome of the repair.
This powerful solution has been designed to:
