"The number of complex rules an estimate must comply with keeps growing," said ALLDATA President Jeff Lagges. "That complexity requires skilled, experienced estimators who must still spend time looking up specifics for various DRPs, new regulations, and so on.
"ALLDATA Compliance operates behind the scenes to verify each line item, helping to eliminate guesswork, reduce lookup times, and lessen the need to hire and retain only the most experienced estimators. The combination means ALLDATA Compliance can help save shop owners a great deal of time and money," he said.
Equally important is the accuracy ALLDATA Compliance adds to each estimate. When shop owners submit estimates to insurers, they can feel confident, Lagges said. Over time, the increased accuracy can help strengthen insurer relationships and potentially raise DRP scores, which may result in increased referrals and revenue.
