Laguna Hills, CA – Assured Performance Network, the country’s largest Certified Collision Repair Network, announced the official launch of their consumer-facing smart phone App – Accident & Collision Care. The Assured Performance consumer-facing smart app instructs vehicle drivers to properly document the details of an accident including: photos, other driver’s information, a comprehensive accident description and all the critical information needed to create a complete detailed accident report. Consumers may also select a Certified Collision Repair Provider of their choice, set an appointment and send the entire report to the shop or any other interested parties. The free consumer smart phone App is now available on Apple App Store and Android Google Play.
What makes this app unique and a game-changer is its ability to automatically set an appointment with an OEM Certified-Recognized Collision Repair provider in their community much like an insurer Direct Repair Program (DRP) assignment works today. The App identifies Certified shops based upon the VIN or year, make, and model of the vehicle and geo-location, or the consumer can pre-select their preferred Collision Repair Provider. The app even uploads the entire accident report including the critical insurance and vehicle information and confirms the connection between the Certified shop and the vehicle driver.
The foundation of the smart Apps and shop locators alike is the network of thousands of Certified-Recognized body shops located in nearly every community. All of the Certified Collision repair providers have met or exceeded standards for tools, equipment, training and facilities required by the participating Automakers to properly repair their vehicles to manufacturer specifications helping to ensure the fit, finish, durability, value and safety.
In addition to the Assured Performance consumer App, the participating Automakers already have, or soon will have, smart Apps and online Certified shop locators specific to their vehicle models that leverage the same database of Certified Repair Providers. Combined these are creating an OEM customer referral program supporting the shops that are Certified. This approach further delivers on the Assured Performance claim, “Certified Once, Recognized by Many”.
“Now that our network of Certified shops blanket nearly the entire country, we can actively educate the consumer and provide them with a Certified Repairer choice almost anywhere they might need and want one” stated Assured Performance Chairman and CEO, Scott Biggs. “Our mission is to ensure that all consumers receive an exceptional repair experience delivered by exceptional businesses.”
This smart app can be utilized as an emergency tool in the moment of crisis or can be downloaded ahead of time (recommended).
