I've landed my "dream" job at a collision shop.
The quality produced is top-notch but the method
of getting there is from the dark ages-pencil and
paper estimations and a lot of guess work.
One of my jobs is to convert the shop over to a
good estimating program. I've investigated Mitchell,
ADP, and CCC. Mitchell seemed pretty good, ADP has
a "waiting list" to come out to the shop and show
me the program and CCC won't return my calls.
Anyone have any opinions on the software or maybe
a better idea? We need one that can give us
accurate estimations and simple to use. It would
be great to be able to convert to an invoice
from the estimation but not neccessary. We work
with insurance companies but we're not large
enough to be hooked into their network.
All opinions are greatly appreciated!
P.S. The Elko is still in an un-finished condition,
but one of the perks of the new job is a complete
facility in which to finish it. Just have to
get the damn control arms back on so I can roll
it to work!
