Selsia van estimating puts fleets in control

Return to news

3rd July 2013

Selsia has introduced SelsiaCentral, a bespoke online estimating service which will bring substantial efficiencies and cost savings for companies operating fleets of vans.

The service, which has already been introduced into Selsia’s clients covers 95% of all bodywork damage and promises significantly reduced VOR times, efficiencies in managing accidents as well as standardised and reduced repair costs throughout the UK. The easy to use service features pre-agreed times and prices to repair or replace van parts and can be adapted for the individual requirements of each of Selsia’s fleet clients.

Following an accident or any bodywork damage, fleet managers can simply go online and notify Selsia of an incident according to the location of the vehicle and the depot. Selsia’s nearest approved accident repair centre can then arrange an immediate inspection of the vehicle at the most convenient time and location. A thorough estimate is then carried out on SelsiaCentral’s van panel diagrams, including
details of where parts need to be replaced or repaired at the pre-agreed fixed prices. The repairer then submits the estimate, including high quality images, directly back to the fleet department. Fleet managers can then log onto SelsiaCentral to view all the jobs that need authorising that
day. Following on screen assessment of each estimate, the fleet manager can make any adjustments necessary before authorising the work to be carried out using a personalised authorisation code.

Fleet managers can assess immediately if it’s more economical to repair over replacing parts. Moreover the incident process is reduced as only one estimate is needed because the system’s prices, times and rates will have been pre-agreed with the fleet. SelsiaCentral is available on a free to use basis for Selsia fleet clients and, unlike other estimating systems, no charges are incurred for generating estimates.
