How easy to use is the system?

Repair Estimate is designed to be intuitive to use, and often can be learned to a workable degree within a few sessions of use. We provide constant customer support over the duration of a subscription, coupled with free online training sessions with a veteran trainer should they be required.


How is the product accessed?

The initial subscription covers a license for our online, portal-based system. This can be accessed from any device with an internet connection, and functions on tablet devices.


Can I use the system on multiple devices concurrently?

Additional logins for an existing license are priced competitively.


Will this allow me to conduct work for insurers?

Repair Estimate produces accurate and professional reports for insurer jobs and commercial jobs alike. Further to this you are able to define different labour profiles, labour rates, and specific discount rates to delineate between different types of customer.


What is the coverage for Repair Estimate?

Repair Estimate contains repair information for the vast majority of the UK’s most popular cars and light commercial vehicles in an ever-expanding database. An intuitive Shadow Vehicle interface allows you to cover any gaps in our range, but as a general rule there will be a solution for any vehicle registered in the last 20 years.


How often is your database updated?

The Repair Estimate database is updated monthly.


What reporting facilities are there?

We provide a .pdf report template builder with comprehensive construction methods to personalise your estimates.


Where do you pull your parts pricing and paint data from?

This is all drawn directly from manufacturer databases.


How is pricing structured?

Our estimating is provided as a licensed product. We do not charge per estimate


Do you function as a Bodywork Management System?

Repair Estimate is solely an estimating module. We do have integrations with numerous BMS providers (e.g. Minotaur Software’s EVA).
