We look forward to what’s ahead as we leverage the new AudaNet Platform.”

Built on proven technology successfully used for years across 20 countries throughout Europe, AudaNet processes thousands of transactions daily. It has been optimized for the North American market to seamlessly connect insurers, independent appraisers, repair shops and vehicle owners, and serves as the technology platform upon which Audatex’s U.S. claims and collision repair solutions are built, offered and delivered. The new platform encompasses a wide range of Audatex solutions – available for mobile and web-based delivery -- including AudaNet Xpert™ Estimating, AudaNet Enterprise™ FNOL, AudaNet Enterprise Dispatch, AudaNet Enterprise Repair Status and many more.
