Bodyshop Software

Car Tracker: the most accurate monitor of repair time ever developed.

Car Tracker is a web-based system which gathers and shares repair data between vehicle manufacturers, work providers, bodyshops, paint manufacturers and policy holders.

It offers work deployment and real-time repair monitoring, integrates with paint scales, sends automatic job status updates to customers and generates repair certificates.

The progress of any repair can be tracked through Car Tracker from first notification of loss, leak-free recovery and deployment to repair and return.

Job status is managed through Car Tracker's intuitive interface on computer, tablet or mobile phone, with technicians booking into a job and selecting the appropriate status: pending, strip, repair, paint, refit or collect.

Each step of the job is recorded to the second, giving valuable insight into where efficiencies can be found at each stage of each job for each bodyshop in the network.
As a deployment tool, Car Tracker helps to allocate vehicles to the right bodyshop according to capacity, capability and proximity, reducing key-to-key times and courtesy car costs and improving CSI scores.
Bodyshops have complete access to all the information around each vehicle's repair history and any optional parts fitted - all the data needed to correctly estimate and repair the vehicle right first time, and to reduce additional administrative and rework costs.

The system also communicates with DVLA data to highlight current recalls posted against vehicles.
Through its integration with Core, Car Tracker leverages invoice costs, vehicle data and job timings from each bodyshop management system, including parts, paint, courtesy car allocation and training, and makes these available for reporting on a per-job basis.

Car Tracker even integrates with bodyshop paint scales to gives absolute transparency to paint usage, assuring that the correct scheme is used for all repairs.
Car Tracker sends updates to the customer, too, keeping them aware of the progress of their repair and enhancing the overall post-accident experience.

The system can be integrated with existing CSI processes to encourage customers to give valuable feedback on the service they have received.
Repair guarantee programmes can also be run through Car Tracker. The system can generate automated repair certificates which we produce and distribute, including in the mailout marketing and communication material on behalf of the vehicle manufacturer or other stakeholders.
