It has been optimized for the American market to seamlessly connect insurers, independent appraisers, repair shops and vehicle owners, and serves as the technology platform upon which Audatex's U.S. claims and collision repair solutions are built, offered and delivered.
"We are very excited to bring the industry's most innovative and intelligent automotive claims and collision repair platform to North America," said Wolfgang Ahrens, Managing Director, Audatex U.S. "From the first moment a collision occurs until that claim is settled, AudaNet is designed to streamline the entire process while providing vehicle owners with the best experience possible. By addressing the persistent challenges that take place throughout the claim and repair lifecycle, AudaNet unifies the myriad steps unlike any other solution available on the market."
AudaNet provides optimized outcomes to insurers by maximizing efficiencies and customer satisfaction, while also reducing loss adjustment expenses (LAEs). For repair facilities, AudaNet delivers peak operational performance by increasing repair accuracy, reducing cycle times, maximizing customer satisfaction and optimizing shop success.

Audatex will debut three solutions powered by the AudaNet Platform that consist of various combinations of Audatex product modules and are targeted to different segments of the automotive claims and repair market.
