  • CIMA CarView: an interactive, Web based software platform that allows service departments to "visually explain" repair recommendations with real-time photos and expert illustrations.
  • CIMAVision ROI Analytical & Reporting Tool: Reports regarding customers, communication ROI’s, employee productivity, customer satisfaction and revenues.
