About: VeriFacts Automotive was founded to address the difference between a repairer’s potential to produce repair quality through the documentation of production inputs such as repair equipment and current levels of technician training; versus verification of the output repair quality actually being produced. The VeriFacts Verified Quality (VQ) Program conducts independent third party verification, onsite repair procedure observations, technician skills coaching and provides comprehensive reporting on all findings. Specific and whole business performances are revealed in these comprehensive reports; allowing for real continuous improvement through correlating recommendations for coaching, education and clinics. VeriFacts Automotive uses proprietary assessment technology, automotive technical expertise and professional integrity to provide a wide array of valuable services to the collision repair, insurance and auto manufacturing communities.
