Mechanicsville, Virginia, October 25, 2021 – Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) will be hosting demonstrations of the Blueprint Optimization Tool (BOT, and Database Enhancement Gateway (DEG, during the 2021 SEMA Show.

Demonstrations will be held on-demand Tuesday – Friday of the SEMA Show, in SCRS Booth 32087 in the Upper South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The Blueprint Optimization Tool software is an automated version of the SCRS Guide to Complete Repair Planning, recognized during the 2019 SEMA Show with a 2020 SEMA New Product Award and 2020 SEMA Global Media Award.

The application provides collision repair facilities with an intelligent, easy-to-use estimate analysis tool that can automatically scan and analyze every estimate for important overlooked operations. The application then populates the missed operations into the repair plan in the proper build sequence. This establishes more accurate and consistent repair plans, reducing supplements and missed opportunities while leading to more accurate customer commitments.

For SEMA Show attendees who would like to pre-schedule an appointment to demo the BOT, and to provide specific estimate files to analyze during the demo, please email Tom Durkin, in advance of the Show.

The DEG is an industry resource managed and funded by SCRS and the Alliance of Automotive Service Providers (AASP), to help improve the information in collision repair estimates by crowdsourcing feedback about vehicle specific errors or omissions in the estimating database and labor times. The free resource has addressed nearly 19,000 inquiries since launched, and DEG Administrator Danny Gredinberg will help walk prospective users through effective tactics for submitting clear and concise inquiries.

In addition to demonstrations on both estimating resources, SCRS will also have Advisors on site to provide live consultations with collision businesses about the SCRS Multiple Employer Plan (MEP) for retirement services. In 2019 SCRS launched an opportunity to leverage the collective buying power of its membership to pursue more affordable and attractive 401(k) options.

Certified financial planner, accredited investment fiduciary and Equity Partner at Irongate Capital Advisors, Scott Broaddus will be on hand in the SCRS booth Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday to meet with shops scheduling one of the 30-minute blocks available between 9 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Broaddus serves as investment adviser to the SCRS plan and has helped countless repair facilities learn how they could not only reduce costs and mitigate administrative burdens, but also fiduciary risks.
