Select The Best Auto Body Collision Estimating Software for your shop:

Finding the right auto body collision estimating software for your shop can be difficult. It's easy to just jump in and select any software. But it is advisable that you give it careful consideration.

If You Write Less Than 10 Estimates a Week: Do you have enough business to pay for estimating software? What about the months when business does get slow? Will choosing a certain estimating system guarantee that you will get more work? These are questions that only you can answer. If you are in doubt, you should select the lowest priced software as shown below.

If You Write More Than 10 Estimates a Week: A factor you should consider is the number of estimates you write each month verses the monthly cost of software. Too many shops have signed a contract for expensive estimating software without giving it much thought. Only to find out later that the software is much more than what they actually needed and now they're strapped with monthly payments. However having a fully automated estimating system will save you time in the office and if you have the business volume to pay for it, then you should go for it.

Therefore, finding the right collision software is critical. So, make your pick from the list below:
