New Fast Track to Repair Methods

March 8, 2016 - 12:00pm

Escribe customers are set to benefit from their fastest ever access to crash repair methods, as Thatcham unveil their new application - Methods Direct.

Provided to subscribers at no additional cost, Methods Direct is a new escribe feature, offering subscribers faster access to repair methods.

Thatcham escribe subscribers now benefit from the best of both worlds with access to unrivalled vehicle and repair data coverage, and when speed is of the essence the quickest possible methods search and retrieval. The process is now as simple as entering the make, model and year of the vehicle to select the required panels and generate vehicle and repair specific methods. Meanwhile, where repair times are required they are still available through escribe, meaning that there’s really no need to look elsewhere.

This latest enhancement to escribe is further evidence that Thatcham are listening to their customer base and are agile enough to implement feedback, as the needs of the smash repair industry continue to evolve at rapid pace. 

Speaking ahead of the Methods Direct UK launch, Senior Commercial Manager at Thatcham Research, Matthew Wright, said “We’re extremely proud of the depth and quantity of repair data that we provide, but we also recognise that sometimes repairers just want the correct method and quickly – Methods Direct has been designed to provide just that.”

Head of Development, Daniel Payne, added “Methods Direct is further tangible evidence of where Thatcham’s ongoing investment in systems and infrastructure is in turn enabling our customers’ businesses and helping them to achieve even greater efficiencies in repair.”

Methods Direct will automatically be added to all new and existing escribe customer accounts from mid-March 2016. For further information call us on 1300 769 348, or email
