The new structure, which it describes as pay-per-estimate pricing, promises a “much smaller ongoing financial commitment” for repairers, who when faced with uncertain volumes of work from insurers are proving reluctant to make major investments.
The annual subscription to the system has been slashed from £6,725 to £1,800, paid in monthly £150 sums. Subscribers will pay a monthly ‘transmission fee’ on top of this, based on the number of estimates issued to work providers.
“By adopting a pricing model that is directly related to usage, we have made Glassmatix III a more compelling proposition for those repairers needing a quality estimating system at a low entry cost price,” says key account and marketing director Brian Ruddock.
The pricing applies from now for new customers. Existing Glassmatix users will be moved on to the new structure on renewal, starting on March 1.
EurotaxGlass’s will continue to sell Glassmatix.NET, a web-based estimating system alternative developed for bodyshops generating very low volumes of estimates.
A new pricing structure also applies to this product.
