The ARMS digital management platform enables repair centers to book rental reservations and send vehicle status updates to insurance partners and customers. In addition, repair centers can track, measure and forecast labor needs, and generate monthly reports through ARMS. These LOR metrics have gained traction with insurers and repairers as a means to track and improve cycle time. In fact, CollisionWeek magazine and Mitchell Industry Trends Report regularly publish the Enterprise data as a comprehensive industry resource.
With more than 5,500 airport and neighborhood offices located within 15 miles of 90 percent of the U.S. population, the Enterprise Rent-A-Car brand is able to provide replacement rentals to customers of collision repair centers and insurance companies all around the country. Customer satisfaction research firm J.D. Power has reported that providing exceptional customer service during the auto claims process is an important element in driving customer loyalty and advocacy. J.D. Power also recognized the Enterprise Rent-A-Car brand as one of the 50 2014 Customer Champions, basing the distinction on customer feedback, opinions and perceptions.
“Losing a customer due to perceived excessive repair time is costly for both collision repair centers and insurers,” said Frank LaViola, Assistant Vice President of Collision Industry Relations, Enterprise Rent-A-Car. “That’s why cycle time has become one of the most important performance metrics in the collision repair industry. With ARMS, communication between insurance companies, collision repair centers and car rental offices is streamlined to help reduce cycle time and get policy holders back in their cars sooner.”
