Current State of Autobody Claims Technology


Advancements in insurance and collision repair technologies have been instrumental in restructuring the way auto claims  are handled. Electronic appraisal reviews and shared guidelines ensure business partners have the information needed to fulfill work in a transparent, compliant, and complete manner. Management dashboards facilitate claims
performance review in a concise, targeted manner, enabling managers to address specific areas of performance, adjust levers, and evaluate the impact in real time. And when prefill and predictive analytics are incorporated into the overall process, unnecessary steps can be avoided at FNOL and at other points in the claims process to ensure the proper resources are not only assigned, but are equipped with information to ensure the fastest , most satisfactory claim settlement for all parties.

The collision repair industry too has benefited from greater use of technology – whether through the ability to update the vehicle owner automatically of the status of a repair,
or through the ability to automatically update the repair production stages via an iPhone or Android device. These changes have shaved time off of the claim and repair
process and have worked to streamline communication between all parties. As consumer’s expectations and service demands continue to grow, more will need to be done to deliver a positive auto claim and repair experience. So what can the industry do to improve the claimant experience?
