Glasurit has launched Refinity, a cloud-based, digital solutions platform for its body shop customers all over the world.
Refinity provides Glasurit customers with an online experience designed to drive efficiency in all areas of business performance, including colour, inventory management, repair order management, training and support. The platform also features links to trusted partners to further drive profitability and efficiency into the overall body shop process.
Collision repair shops can use a number of different software solutions across various systems in daily operations, which can be an inefficient use of time and resources. Refinity is designed to combine most of these digital tools into a single location with an easy and secure way to access them.
All the applications are stored on a cloud platform, Refinity can be accessed from any device connected to the internet. Software updates and maintenance are performed automatically, offering repair shops the latest versions of the applications at all times. No special software is required on the user's hardware, just a single password.
Refinity's Colour Apps, combined with Glasurit's spectrophotometers, offer repair shops a simple colour retrieval method with seamless navigation and accurate digital colour matching. Glasurit has a large colour database and now, with Refinity, the latest automobile colours available in real-time.
Refinity’s Business Apps provide transparency into consumption and profitability metrics for each repair completed within a shop. With Refinity, repair shop owners, managers and technicians can track product usage and summarise associated costs and profitability for paint and related materials.
Shops can set their preferred portfolio of products, manage pricing and stock levels and automatically generate recommended orders to optimise inventory. Key business insights are summarised into intuitive reports to maximise performance and profit potential.
Refinity's Training Apps allow body shop professionals and managers to brush up on skills and learn new ones anytime and anywhere. A variety of instructional programs, professional training videos and interactive eLearning courses are available online.
This includes everything from simple troubleshooting to tips and tricks, in-depth product and process information provided by Glasurit's team of technicians. To keep track of learning goals, certified eLearning courses can be completed through the exclusive Refinity Learning University.
