Added Wes Steffen of Elmer’s Body Shop in Elkhart, IN: “This is a huge step-change in the field of auto body repair. Carbeat is a great example of using data and advanced digital technology to solve the long-standing problems that we face at collision repair shops. The benefits I have seen include increased throughput, reduced waste in most phases of the repair process and higher morale and engagement from my employees.”
Designed for simplicity and customizability, Carbeat is easy to adopt and incorporate into any existing workflow. It also runs from the cloud, and therefore requires zero installation or high-end technological expertise to implement and maintain. It’s the latest example of AkzoNobel’s digital innovation and use of big data. The company also has in-depth knowledge and expertise in digital color design and color matching, surface design and protection.
Carbeat is being launched across the United States on November 1 and is expected to launch across Europe in early 2018.
