Custom Formula Features:
One of the most recognized improvements within the application and promotes a “one step mixing” process approach to the paint operation. Build the repair layers starting with the color and add your favorite undercoat and clear. The new weigh screen allows simple and easy navigation between components and offers magnified end point detection to promote 100% mix accuracy.
Estimating with accuracy—the amount of color, clear or primer needed for a repair is now achievable with the enhanced Estimate Volume feature. Select the closest vehicle or truck part and adjust the number of coats for full coverage or blend panels to dial in the precise volume of product to mix.
We know mistakes happen and sometimes there are over pours or waste. Tracking these instances will assist with job cost reporting and lead to meaningful resolution.
Any successful business recognizes that teamwork and communication fosters profitability. A winning feature in PaintManager® XI software is customizable user presets which allows greater transparency on team roles and responsibilities. At a glance mixing operations can be viewed via the Mix Queue associated with any job providing up to the minute details on the progress of any project.
Taking the concept of Mix Sessions to the next level with Jobs. Allows for simple and easy Repair Order tracking for active Jobs and historical work. At-a-glance preview of team assignments, work progress on each step of the repair and add spectrophotometer readings to the job. A must have utility for organizing and building your own personal work plan.
The heart of the collision center is throughput and elevating the number of vehicles coming to the shop and reducing “touch points” yields profitability. Jobs is a simple and easy tool to track all Repair Orders and generate Estimate information. Add Sundry Kits to maximize all costs around the repair and present a proper estimate back to the customer. And if you want to elevate your business to the next level – take advantage of the new Inventory and Pricing features.
There is strength in numbers. And when the paint mixing operation teams up with industry leading management partners—strong bonds form to deliver paint consumption metrics, evaluate materials usage and generate financial performance indicators. Web interfaces establish the packaging and movement of key data elements between the front office and the paint operation.
By far the most important operation—auditing the mixing room operation promotes teamwork, shares best practices and affords better training opportunities. Best practices here will lead to improved color match, reduced waste and track product usage.
Business metrics keep all parties on task to achieve the best performance possible. Simple to set-up with easy to understand report parameters will generate impactful results for any business manager.
