Kent Automotive, recognized as a leading distributor of high-performance products and inventory management solutions to collision and mechanical repair shops and automotive OEMs, has released a mobile app to make repair parts tracking and cost recovery easier and faster for collision centres.
Kent Automotive’s PROS Profit Enhancement Tool app is available for Apple’s iPhone and Android devices.
The PROS mobile app allows users to create complete and accurate invoices directly from their mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets. The PROS cost recovery tool improves repair workflow efficiency by tracking and costing all consumable products used on a repair. The app allows technicians to scan product bar codes with their phones, which automatically enters the items in an invoice. PROS’ dynamic database of thousands of repair supplies ensures more accurate, detailed job costing and a more complete accounting of the materials used in repair processes.
Kent customers registered with CCC ONE Repair Workflow shop management software (CCC ONE) can send the invoice from the PROS mobile app directly to CCC One for automotive repair claims processing.
“Functionality and ease of use are central to Kent’s PROS mobile app,” said Matt Brown, Senior Vice President, Sales, Lawson Products (Kent Automotive’s parent company). “This will further productivity gains for technicians using PROS. Speeding the repair time cycle is a critical competitive advantage for collision centres looking to improve the customer experience.”
