Mechanicsville, Virginia, January 7, 2020 – The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS), working with Mike Anderson of Collision Advice and Danny Gredinberg of the Database Enhancement Gateway (DEG), released the first video of a new weekly series focusing on quick tips to boost collision repair businesses.

The series will contain very focused subjects that can positively impact collision repairers, with the first topic addressing the not-included steps associated with a second color or clear for interiors or undersides.

“We’ve seen a tremendous amount of positive response to the DEG Estimating Tips that are released every Monday,” shared SCRS Chairman, Brett Bailey. “Our collective goal in working with Mike and Danny was to tap into their exceptional knowledge base and expand upon that idea of delivering very specific messages and information focused in on a singular topic at a time. Between SCRS, DEG and Collision Advice, there is a great deal of interaction with collision repair operators across the United States. The challenges that are expressed to us from those encounters are going to be the basis for topics we address and how the quick tips evolve.”

A new video will be released each Thursday afternoon, and other topics will continue to touch on technical processes, repair planning considerations and not-included items, accounting practices, negotiation and documentation approaches, and more.

I am so excited about this ongoing project with SCRS and partnering with Danny from the DEG to provide quick tips that I am confident are going to help collision repair centers thrive and not just survive,” added Mike Anderson. “We are tying some of the ‘Who Pays for What?’ survey results in with critical responses to the DEG, and I can’t wait to hear from repairers about the impact I believe this information is going to make. I always say this and I’m very sincere, if you don’t belong to SCRS as a member, don’t delay join today!”
