The Co-operators Group partners with Solera | Audatex

Solera | Audatex , a global provider of risk and asset management software and services to the automotive, fleet and property ecosystems,  announced that Co-operators , a Canadian multi-line insurance and financial services co-operative, has selected Audatex and its APU solution as its exclusive alternative parts sourcing vendor.

Audatex APU is an alternative parts utilization solution that leverages real-time data to locate recycled, aftermarket, reconditioned, and surplus original equipment parts for vehicle repairers. Audatex APU connects clients with these alternative parts from an extensive network of qualified automotive recyclers, parts distributors, dealers, and manufacturers.

“The Co-operators has selected Solera | Audatex at an exciting time. We recently released a major upgrade that reduces search time by 50 percent while efficiently guiding the estimator through the parts selection process. Aiding in the process is our proprietary Hollander® Interchange parts predictor, which utilizes over five million historical records to reduce the ambiguity in parts selection, and our AlertNetwork, which allows for real-time notifications when optimal parts choices have not occurred. These solutions provide coaching opportunities to the estimator promptly, allowing real-time coaching opportunities.” – Michel Caron, Vice President, Sales, Solera | Audatex.

“Audatex APU provides a seamless experience within our estimating solution, allowing both staff and shops to quickly find the right part at the right time. This is particularly important for recycled parts, which are considered the most environmentally friendly part category. Having real-time access to the highest-quality salvage part information allows us to utilize them as appropriate. This partnership is a win-win as it helps reduce our carbon footprint while providing quality parts for our clients’ vehicles.” – Gerry Martineau, AVP, National Claims, Auto, The Co-operators.
