All bodyshops in AXA’s network will be required to adopt Audatex’s estimating system in a phased implementation from October. Audatex said it already covers 81% of AXA’s approved network, It was working with AXA to support repairers not already on board.
EurotaxGlass’s said the decision will not impede its plans for product development in the bodyshop sector.
“Estimating sits at the heart of our evolving product portfolio,” said managing director Deven Thakrar.
Insurers still backing EurotaxGlass’s Glassmatix as their preferred estimating system include Co-op, Zurich and Provident. However, most major insurers now support Audatex.
