New PMCLogic version 6.4 released

ComputerLogic today announced its latest release, version 6.4, of the popular paint and materials management system, PMCLogic™.

PMCLogic users will immediately notice several significant enhancements surrounding cost and revenue analytics and receive updated paint and material price information. The new “Insurance Grouping Feature” aggregates insurer information for all vehicles repaired, along with other data imported from the 3 major estimation providers (Audatex, CCC and Mitchell), and provides informational reports that promote better communication within the insurance industry.
“These new features will add value to the repair process by providing a wealth of accurate data that will assist in the decision making process. Accurate data creates opportunities to reduce cost and increase revenue,” said Rick Palmer, CEO of ComputerLogic.

When generating reports, PMCLogic’s ability to segregate information by customer groups, allows PMCLogic users to identify trends and draw comparisons more easily. “The idea is to give repairers and insurers data which is actionable and provides them with the information they need to better manage their business,” added Palmer.

PMCLogic Version 6.4 also includes a new “Paint and Materials Sales and Cost Export Feature” which allows shops to export their actual paint and materials cost to a Body Shop Management System.

Rick Palmer concluded that “PMCLogic Version 6.4 is another major step forward in the evolution of PMCLogic and we invite all repairers and insurers to evaluate for themselves how P&M information, based on surface-area based calculations, improves the accuracy of data generated for paint and materials estimating.”

What PMCLogic Customer's are Saying...

"I have only been using PMCLogic for 2 months but have used it consistently and am finding that my insurers like the detailed invoices and accept them routinely. I believe in using real data for cost control and management and that’s why PMCLogic is a big part of how this shop is run.”
- Fred Haberl – Auto Body Resurrection CarStar – Lakeland, Florida
"Since we started using PMCLogic 3 years ago, it has really helped our bottom-line, because we are able to invoice for the exact materials that actually go into a repair. ComputerLogic also does a great job with support."
- Mark Highfield - Regal Nissan of Roswell, Georgia
"I just wanted to say thanks to everyone from PMCLogic. Thanks for all of your help - YOU ALL WERE AWSOME!!!!! The program is working well for us and we are making more profit and being paid for what we are using. THANKS! From all of us at Regal Pontiac!"
- Cherri Surrency - Regal Pontiac - Lakeland, Florida
“PMCLogic is an amazing system, and from using it, I’ve gained the respect of our insurers. When you use PMCLogic, the truth is the truth. And PMCLogic puts an additional $9,000.00 a month into our cash flow.” -Ray Gunder – Gunder’s Auto Center – Lakeland, Florida
“I don’t import CCC or Audatex in my business and P&M estimating takes me a little longer. But I did my first [PMCLogic] estimate the other day and it took me less than 5 minutes. This system is heads above Mitchell and PaintEx.”
-Barrett Smith – Auto Damage Experts – Tampa, Florida
“I’ve been a PMCLogic user for a year and a half and I often review my paint and materials invoices with my DRP’s. Some shops are afraid to educate their insurers and jobbers about paint and materials costs and this needs to change. We plan to continue to use PMCLogic and help bring that change about!”
- Phillip Richmond- Scott’s Auto Body -Tehachapi, California
“We’ve gradually been implementing PMCLogic into our estimating process for 3 months and are beginning to see the great potential to recover unrealized paint and materials compensation. PMCLogic will become a key feature for invoicing in the future.”
- Rick McMillan- Harrison’s Auto Body - Macon, Georgia
