Auto3P set to launch SAAS Horizon platform in Ireland

Auto3P is launching its SAAS Horizon platform in Ireland, offering a complete range of automotive crash repair products from FNOL, estimatics, Procurement, Claims Handling/settlement to Fleet products and ‘pay as you go’ telematics.

Core to the platform is the parts and labour database, MultiCat. Based on motor manufacturer data, all labour and accurate parts information is stored for most popular cars. Supersession numbers are tracked to ensure the right part is identified for each repair and using the B2B procurement platform within the system this information can be sent directly to the appropriate and selected franchised dealer.

What will be of great interest to bodyshops is the Auto3P estimating product, MultiMate and its mobile estimating tool. HandiMate mobile estimating works on tablet, iPad, iPhone and Android. It only needs basic internet access to work. Should the internet fail everything is saved so nothing lost when reconnecting.

Generating mobile estimates is very easy and links automatically to the desktop module simultaneously reproducing the estimate and removing double keying.

Auto3P has developed many features and innovative ways of reducing time taken to complete professional and fully detailed estimated repair costs. One such feature is the use of repair kits to replicate typical regular and similar accident repair quotes, such as front end/back end repairs. Another is the inclusion of a reception report that details accurately the condition of the car prior to repair and listing items such a jack, spare wheel, first aid kit etc. that can cause post repair problems when returning the vehicle to is owner!

The main focus has been on reducing complexity and cost to the bodyshop. You don’t need expensive software install costs (the app for MultiMate on iPad costs a euro to download). The system is intuitive, requires no training and importantly for repairers does not require annual licences, training levies and doesn’t have any hidden costs. The pricing model is transaction based so no upfront outlay, no additional costs for images or emails, just a single charge of €10 per estimate. The finalised estimate can be printed, sent electronically to people and companies and is accessible at any time via a unique user name and password.

Auto3P may be new to Ireland though it generates over two million estimates per annum globally so repairers can use the system with confidence knowing it is tried and tested. Its products are used across the automotive aftermarket in mechanical, service and accident repair, including insurance companies and accident management companies around the world.

Auto3P is set to bring innovation, flexibility and choice to bodyshops, assessors, insurance companies and franchised dealers. Why not call for a free trial?
