AkzoNobel Car Refinishes Americas today announces the formation of an exclusive e-commerce business agreement with NuGen IT. This agreement is a first of its kind and enables auto body shops that are part of the Sikkens Acoat selected Verified Repair Network (ASVRN) to be uniquely identified to the insurance companies that are making out-of-network repair assignments.
The technology that makes this assignment capability possible is done through the NuGen IT web-based software application, "Non-Network Portal Plus" or NNP+. NuGen IT has partnered with AkzoNobel to provide direct access to the auto body shops that are part of the ASVRN network.
"Shops want business, consumers want seamless service, and insurance companies want the most reliable repair options for their policy holders no matter where those policy holders reside," noted Tim Loden, Director of Marketing for AkzoNobel Car Refinishes Americas. Loden continues, "NuGen IT has developed a sustainable solution that gives insurance companies an efficient way to exchange claims data with non-DRP shops."
In commenting on the recent agreement, Pete Tagliapietra, President of NuGen IT, noted that, "The products offered by AkzoNobel and the businesses participating in the ASVRN network represent the cream of the crop found in the collision repair industry today. We feel confident that insurers choosing our NNP+ tool are getting the best for their policy holders when ASVRN locations are selected."
