Sherwin-Williams app aims to improve collision repair quality

Sept. 28, 2020
Collision Core Quality is the first of several fully mobile solutions built into a comprehensive suite of applications designed to optimize business results.

Sherwin Williams Automotive Finishes will address quality first with its suite of fully-mobile applications – Collision Core. Collision Core Quality, available to collision centers as a single App purchase, verifies and validates the repair process in real-time with a focus on error elimination and labor optimization, the company stated.

“Quality is the foundation of a stable, sustainable and successful business,” said Louisa Martone, strategic marketing director of Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes. “It is an area that the collision repair industry collectively needs to address. With this specific application, we’re focused solely on quality with a digital solution that is accessible to everyone involved in the repair and reporting process.”

The Sherwin-Williams Collision Core Quality App replaces paper checklists and end-of-repair quality controls with a mobile application that delivers in-process, time-stamped and validated information. The application enables peer-to-peer quality verification and validation assurance and delivers the customer a digital record of all of the vehicle’s repairs, according to the company.

“Technicians don’t have to leave their workstation to get an answer,” said Martone. With in-process documentation, the technician records a task in the Quality App, and the next technician in line verifies the repair work meets shop and OE criteria. Repairs are recorded and photographed to capture data, create training opportunities and allow for a better repair standard.

Collision Core Quality also offers the added connectivity to estimating and management systems, the company added. “We’re focused on helping any collision center, regardless of who they’re buying paint from, preventing the continued occurrence and added expenditure associated with quality failures,” explained Martone.
