Get ‘Repair Aware’ with escribe

November 3, 2014 - 12:00pm

escribe’s new Repair Aware functionality from Thatcham delivers up front repair recommendations on all relevant methods data, enabling repairers to…

- Avoid unnecessarily intrusive repairs
- Prevent common, but costly parts damage or breakages
- Steer clear of delays on parts ordering and rework

Thatcham Research have announced the introduction of ‘Repair Aware’ - an indispensable new enhancement to the centre’s flagship methods product escribe.

Now an integral component of the world’s most comprehensive collection of fully researched crash repair methods,'Repair Aware' provides escribe users with clear ‘in-method’ indicators, steering them towards those specific processes where practical gains on efficiency, cost and avoidance of re-work are easily identifiable and achievable.

As complexity in modern vehicle repair becomes the accepted norm, bodyshops are increasingly reliant on the practical step-by-step instructions provided by documented repair methods and opportunities to affect the bottom line may at first seem limited. However there are still many ways to make efficiency savings and Thatcham have done the work uniquely for escribe subscribers.  

Following the latest escribe update, subscribers will find the ‘Repair Aware branding clearly displayed alongside the relevant method, enabling an at-a-glance view of those repair scenarios where Thatcham experts have identified specific advice and clear recommendations to lead to potential savings. The 'Repair Aware' branding is prominent up front and throughout the printed method pack to alert any technicians who may become involved in the repair at any stage. 

As you’d expect from Thatcham these optimised techniques are tried and tested in a live workshop environment and are guaranteed to provide no compromise on repair integrity or quality.

The New Training Program is already helping users explore the many benefits of Repair Aware. All users in Australia and New Zealand will be able to access the new 'Repair Aware' functionality following its release in early November 2014.
