[JOHN STEGENGA] CollisionCore has been a great change and an eye opener for someone like myself. I have a degree in mechanical engineering, so I get really into the variables and I found it very fascinating, how much is going on behind the scenes.
[CHARLIE KATAN] It blows everything else out of the water.
[BRIAN BATES] Learning the app couldn't have been more simple.
[JOHN] It keeps you motivated to move forward, a sense of urgency.
[CHARLIE] Taking stress off of the general environment, making the culture better.
[BRIAN] User friendly.
[JOHN] They grab a car, they can log in and out, and at any given time, Charlie, the manager, can look and see who is on what, we can see the meetings, everyone has access to it. It is pretty phenomenal.
[BRIAN] Each tech has to be logged on to that job. We have to be honest about our times, and we have to close out. So that way they can look at the numbers and they are seeing real numbers in real time. Not to mention that board learns, it learns as it goes, so if we try to fake anything about the cycle, then we are not doing ourselves any justice at all.
[JOHN] I feel very comfortable bringing someone in, explaining every step of the process because my confidence is so high that the whole team is keying in and doing the job to the best of their ability and to the best of the industry standard ability.
[CHARLIE] Frees me up to do any number of other tasks that fall in my lap.
[JOHN] Because I feel I can focus a lot more on what I'm trying to get done in the office, my ability to do what my job is, looking over files, final billing, looking at the big picture of gross profit numbers, I'm getting that back, which is great.
[BRIAN] If we're gonna move to the next level, this is going to be the tool to get us there and it matters.
[BRIAN] This tool makes any shop or any manager look like an all-star.
[JOHN] Sherwin being, in my eyes, at the forefront of this has really been advantageous, and I am thankful that we had the opportunity to be one of the first in the country to try it out. SHERWIN-WILLIAMS SHERWIN-AUTOMOTIVE.COM SHERWIN-WILLIAMS COLLISION CORE PRODUCTION
