The collision estimation software from Certified Collateral Corporation allows users to obtain quotes on automotive repairs by connecting with a network of repair shops to determine the exact cost to repair the damage to a vehicle. It offers an interface for designating details about the car, the incident, damage and insurance coverage to return the most accurate estimates.
Certified Collateral Corporation's collision estimation software begins by asking the user for information about the vehicle in question to determine its base value, including its make, model, year of manufacturing and mileage. The tool then prompts for details about the collision and the extent of the damage, drawing from a database of terms, values and procedures to create a basic profile of the situation. One key feature of the tool is that it connects with an extensive network of repair shops across the country to determine the approximate cost of the necessary repairs according to pricing from local shops.
When an insurance agent uses the tool to create a collision quote, it also checks against the insurance coverage plan to return the potential cost to the driver after any deductibles. The system also includes safeguards to ensure the agent includes the appropriate details about the car and the collision so that the quote is as accurate as possible. It also allows the agent to create the estimate from a desktop computer or with a mobile app while physically inspecting the vehicle in question.
