Audatex to set new standards for Honda bodyshops


Software and services provider Audatex will deliver a bespoke programme to Honda’s 138 approved bodyshops nationwide, culminating in an Estimator of the Year award.

As part of its Honda Accident Repair Programme (HARP), the manufacturer has been working with Audatex to develop Vehicle Damage Assessor (VDA) benchmarking and training.

As well as testing delegates’ ability to apply the correct methodology, the courses will also equip VDAs with the skills to ‘fully utilise the Audatex system’.

John Powell, programme manager at Honda, commented: “We are pleased to announce that we have joined with Audatex to introduce this training.

“It will be particularly exciting as our Estimator of the Year will be announced at the inaugural ABP British Bodyshop Awards in June. We are anticipating an extremely positive response from our network.”

Paul Sykes, sales and operations director at Audatex UK, added: “This initiative is a clear demonstration of Honda’s commitment to its approved network of dealers and bodyshops.

“The programme is designed to create accurate, comprehensive and right first time assessments to enable faster approvals and completion of repairs.”
