PPG has expanded the capabilities of the PPG AdjustRite commercial estimating system by adding SEM adhesives, sealers and undercoats to the platform’s Commercial Parts Listing Program supplier database. SEM Products, Inc., is a leading manufacturer of specialized automotive refinish products.
“We’re very pleased to add SEM products to our parts resource,” says Doug Orr, PPG AdjustRite manager. “By listing SEM products within the PPG AdjustRite system, users now can load the part number and current price at the same time that a collision repair estimate is being prepared. This eliminates the need to locate and price the parts manually or go outside the system, which can be a time-consuming effort.”
Suppliers such as SEM also can benefit from the PPG AdjustRite system integration, PPG says.
“Enabling SEM to post its product catalog online via the PPG AdjustRite system provides the company with direct exposure to many of the same PPG AdjustRitesystem users – truck fleets, repair centers, dealerships and more,” says Orr.
As the industry’s only commercial estimating program designed specifically for medium-to-heavy-duty truck repairs (and now the RV market), the PPG AdjustRite commercial estimating system works on all web-enabled computers, including mobile devices that meet system requirements, the company says. Estimates can be managed from the office or shop or in the field. The system is also Estimate Management Standard (EMS)-capable, enabling it to communicate easily with other shop management systems, the company adds.
