On Saturday June 6th, 2015 Redshaw Paint Supply, along with Axalta Coating Systems co-sponsored the Nebraska Auto Body Association's estimating seminar with Mike Anderson of

Mike Anderson covered several topics that attendees found beneficial. He was able to give insight on several topics to allow body shop owners to do business better. One stressed point is the difference in durability of clear coating an entire panel versus blending within a panel. Axalta in fact recommends that the entire panel be clear coated to ensure the maximum durability for the life of the repair.

  • Some of the services will give body shops the ability to refine their processes and make the most of every estimate that comes through the door. From the time the vehicle enters the shop to the minute work begins Mike was able to show how to make the most off every job that came their way. Several services that were endorsed included options to help with all stages of repair.
  • For when the car first comes in Collision Diagnostic Services offers the ability find faults beyond what is shown with the Service Engine light. They offer an internet based service that allows the vehicle to be remotely diagnosed with minimal effort.
  • Once the estimate comes through Estimate Scrubber can allow a shop to make sure that every item that can be charged out has been. And maximize what the shop is able to make on each job. Using a PDF copy of an estimate from any major estimating service either Audatex, CCC or Mitchell the Estimate Scrubber service can scrutinize every item on the estimate to make sure every thing is billed out for each job.
  • After the estimate has been gone through with the use of Estimate Scrubber  can give a shop owner a chance to find repair times that might not be available through Audatex, CCC or Mitchell.

The overall turnout for the day was great and we look forward to being able to work with Axalta to bring Mike Anderson in again in the future.
