Texas-based data and software firm Solera Holdings recently hosted a groundbreaking for a new research and training facility for the auto insurance, collision repair and vehicle manufacturer industries.
The facility, known as CESVI LIV NA, is located in Justin, Texas.
“Focused on providing factual, credible and documented research, CESVI LIV NA will curate data on reparability, diagnostics and procedures. The center will also disseminate this research throughout training and deliver expert consultancy on advanced technology trends,” according to the announcement.
The company hopes to deliver tools to reduce repair costs, address the shortage of skilled automotive technicians and promote best practices in vehicle maintenance and repair.
“This center will add value to the automotive insurance industry. Our research, consultation, technology and training will provide data and insights into the most efficient and effective repair processes, which will then support better residual values and create more cost-efficient automotive repairs ensuring safe vehicles get back on the road,” said Chris Mullen, executive director of CESVI LIV NA.
Once completed, the facility will enable mechanics, collision technicians and assessors to earn certifications and gain hands-on training for real-world scenarios on the hi-tech vehicles on the road today.
CESVI is a network of independent research and training centers available in Europe, Asia and Latin America.
