On Thursday May 10th, we hosted an exclusive event at the London Film Museum to unveil our new innovative PlanManager bodyshop management solution to customers.
On a very sunny afternoon in Covent Garden, we were joined by many of our brilliant customers at the venue’s Bond In Motion exhibition to officially introduce them to our cloud-based vehicle repair and claim management tool, and what a great day it was!
The event began with a warm welcome from Audatex’s Senior National Account Manager for UK and Ireland, Tom Hart. David Shepherd, Managing Director of Audatex UK and Africa, then took to the stage to give attendees their first introduction to PlanManager and discuss Audatex’s mission to connect people, streamline workflow and deliver individual experiences through innovative technology.
David also gave guests a first glimpse of the findings from the opening eBook in our New Rules of the Road research series, focusing on Technology and Operations. He revealed that bodyshops are already investing heavily in innovative technology solutions as the industry looks to drive efficiency, increase customer satisfaction and future-proof their services from continuous advancements in vehicle technology.
The Audatex team were then joined by John Gaynor, Head of Business Services at Tesco Underwriting, who gave guests an insight into the changing claims landscape and the importance of utilising technology to design and deliver a new digital claims experience for customers.
The final presentation came from our Bodyshop Product Owner, Dean Weller, who delved deeper into the benefits of PlanManager’s innovative features and explored how they can help bodyshops to streamline processes and ensure they are ready for the industry of both today and tomorrow.
After the day’s talks drew to a close, customers were free to indulge in a martini or two in true James Bond style, as the exhibition opened its doors and gave them full access to the host of classic cars and memorabilia on show.
We are delighted to have been able to showcase PlanManager to our customers and hope everyone had a great afternoon!
