Thornhill, Ontario--August 4, 2010--Productivity in Canadian collision repair facilities rose as much as 26 per cent between 2007 and 2009, according to a recent study by AutoHouse technologies.
AutoHouse recently released the results of their study on their blog. It focused on touch time over the last few years.
The data AutoHouse collected showed a steady increase in average units per day over the last few years: from 1.9 a day in 2007 to 2.4 a day in 2009.
In the blog posting on the results, they cautioned that the metrics they used were just to show the trend.
"In future reports, we may dig deeper and get the statistical validation required to make a definitive statement," said AutoHouse's Mike Gilliland.
Gilliland theorized the incline might be the result of new lean practices shops and insurers have been adopting over the last few years. He also suggested that some very successful shops may be raising the average.
The results of this study have made them eager for further information on different factors that could influence productivity such as geographic area.
