eAutoclaims, GreenLeaf Auto Recyclers Note Automated Parts Estimate Review and Tech Agreement

January 5, 2005

GreenLeaf Auto Recyclers, a supplier of recycled parts and services to the Automotive Collision Repair industry, and Florida-based eAutoclaims, a provider of managed collision repair services and insurance claims processing technology applications, announced a technology licensing agreement that enables the GreenLeaf “Automated Parts Review” process.

The technology agreement for EMS estimate part searches powered by eAutoclaims’ eDataTransfer streamlines the recycled parts procurement process and improves recycled parts utilization. “Automated Parts Review” and parts sourcing is provided through the GreenLeaf online “Rapid Parts Locating System” and the GreenLeaf America Call Center.

eAutoclaims will provide the EMS technology tools to automate the processing of estimate part searches. eAutoclaims will power the estimate upload for GreenLeaf comprehensive collision estimate reviews to GreenLeaf America. Currently, GreenLeaf processes more than 500,000 transactions a month through traditional methods and its online tool “Rapid Parts Locating System.” The technology will automate a significant portion of these transactions.

eAutoclaims and GreenLeaf will display parts review results in the eAutoclaims EMS rules based Audit tool, AuditPro. Insurance companies can now use one application for a complete electronic EMS auditing tool and recycled parts locater with the salvage parts results right under the OEM part number in the estimate. The combination of the two features will reportedly improve recycled parts utilization, improve efficiencies and reduce costs.

The system allows eAutoclaims network members the ability to conduct high- speed parts reviews, the ability to view parts and prices from multiple recycle yards in a single transaction, and determine availability; all in an automated fashion. Collision centers and appraisers now have the ability to locate recycled parts, receive a quote and order parts in one simple transaction.

By combining the Automated Parts Review with eAutoclaims AuditPro rules-based audit program, shops and appraisers can reportedly ensure compliance to insurance company guidelines prior to submitting the estimate to the insurance company or providing a copy of the estimate to the consumer. User support is available from the GreenLeaf America Call Center and technical support is provided by the eAutoclaims organization.
