Toronto, Ontario -- January 8, 2017 -- Scarborough’s Prochilo Brothers Auto Collision was host to a training session put on by Spanesi to educate collision repairers on the company’s Touch electronic measuring system, in addition to highlighting the features of the system.
The Touch system was originally conceptualized two decades ago, but has continued to be refined and improved on over the last 20 years. According to a media release by Spanesi, “Touch is a universal electronic measuring system, which allows a repairer to quickly carry out a diagnosis on damaged vehicles, to realize the certification of correct reparation and to measure all the mechanical parts.”
The machine boasts the ability to take measurements without the need for any sort of adapters, and the company says the Touch system gives repairers the ability to “measure all the mechanical parts of a vehicle, assembled or disassembled on the vehicle in order to diagnose every single mechanical component” in what they call a “personal database” for each vehicle or customer.
According to Domenic Ieraci, Sales/Marketing & Corporate Communications for Prochilo Brothers, the system has helped to maximize their shops’ efficiencies. “In using the Spanesi Touch Measuring System we’ve found more accuracy in our estimates and have streamlined the repair process,” says Ieraci.
Anthony Iaboni, President of Collision 360, arranged to have head trainer Tom McGee of Spanesi Americas to conduct the training. Iaboni conducts many such training events in collision shops and has hosted courses at the Collision 360 Training Centre, set to officially open in the coming weeks. Amongst the trainees were technicians, apprentices and appraisal staff.
This training is an important step for Prochilo Brothers, as it helps its employees and its customers. “We believe that investing in the training of our technicians is paramount to ensuring our customers vehicles are repaired safely and accurately,” says Ieraci.
