Westlake, Texas — Solera has announced that its Audatex Estimating platform has been named “best estimating system,” by the Auto Body Professionals Club (ABP) in the United Kingdom–for the 13th consecutive year.
“We feel an immense sense of pride,” said Christopher Wright, managing director at Solera U.K. “Our team is committed to providing repair customers with solutions that combine the latest technologies to reinvent and streamline internal processes and repair claims. This foundation was established with Audatex and continues with our newest generation product suite, Qapter®, a revolutionary A.I.-based, end-to-end management platform.”
The ABP’s annual awards program, “The Night of Knights,” held online this year due to the pandemic, determined the award winners by popular vote from a base of more than 2000 autobody repair shops from around the U.K. ABP members are at the forefront of all that happens in the U.K. autobody repair industry; their vote of confidence validates and underscores Solera’s leading position in the industry.
Since Audatex’s inception in 1987, the collision repair industry has transformed and revolutionized the claims of the management process. The device is used by more than 2,400 repairers in the U.K., which means the company’s technical database covers roughly 98 per cent of vehicles on the road, resulting in Solera’s platforms used by 95 per cent of U.K. motor insurers.
Audatex delivers efficiencies through its automated claims rules engine and intelligent repair cost calculation module. These features are underpinned by unmatched historical vehicle and claims data to ensure unparalleled accuracy. The Data Science and Repair Science™ foundations distinctive to Solera, combined with the company’s continuous investment in innovation across the global ecosystem, have paved the way for Qapter®, Solera’s breakthrough AI-based, end-to-end claims management solutions suite. Integrating visual intelligence into Solera’s proven estimating infrastructure, the solution determines the most intelligent repair operations within seconds from images alone, to save time, speed up the claims process, and increase customer satisfaction – moving the industry forward at scale.
“Audatex has a proven history of reliance, trust, and efficiency,” said Wright. “This award is a vote of confidence in established platforms and we look forward to introducing new platforms to ABP and its members. Our cutting-edge solutions leverage the best of modern technology including AI to deepen the efficiency, accuracy, and quality of vehicle repairs.”
