As Chairman of the CIC Estimating Committee, Roger Cada and his team have been assessing how and why the estimate sets the tone of the repair and affects the entire business. Accuracy is the key to future success in the collision repair industry. Using the correct method to assess the damage is vital to ensuring shops consistently provide quality repairs and return safe vehicles back to the owner.

Today's highly advanced vehicles require a new way of thinking about damage assessment. In the webinar, Roger will discuss how diagnostics need to change. It's not only about the electrical system anymore. He will also cover how repairers must change the way they present the damages going forward.

Accurately assessing the damage from the start identifies all line items necessary to restore the vehicle’s safety and functionality as the OEM intended. The result is improved cycle time and efficiency which equates to greater profit. With ADAS becoming more prevalent on all vehicles, the accuracy of the repair and re-calibration, both electronic and structural, is necessary to avoid liability exposure.

Key takeaways from the webinar include:

  • Gain a greater understanding of what your estimator is doing for your business.
  • Understand the changing methodology for assessing today's highly advanced vehicles.
  • Understand that diagnostics of damage goes beyond the electrical system.

Every month, the Elite Academy highlights a topic to keep collision repairers and those that serve them well-informed with relevant information required to be successful in today’s challenging business environment.  The webinars feature a wide range of top industry leaders in an interactive and often entertaining format.
