UK Firm Partner on Collision Repair Green Parts System
Interesting news out of the UK as salvage and vehicle recycling company SYNETIQ and insurance provider Allianz have launched a digital platform designed to boost vehicle repairers’ ability to source more environmentally friendly components and promote sustainable repairs.
Allowing repairers to use their existing software system to generate an estimate for a vehicle repair, mygreenparts automatically notifies SYNETIQ’s stock control system of the parts required – within the guidelines agreed with Allianz – and enables SYNETIQ to offer all matching items from its inventory. SYNETIQ says it only supplies non-safety critical green parts to be fitted, such as doors, body panels and headlamps, and parts have been graded, cleaned, safety checked and come with a declaration certificate of parts conformity.
The companies says that green parts are more environmentally friendly and cost up to 75 per cent less than their newly manufactured equivalent.
Mygreenparts will also enable repairers, insurers, and fleets to measure and report the emissions and carbon savings they achieve. Captured data can be used to identify trends and enhance fulfilment rates.
