Database Enhancement Gateway Welcomes ALLDATA as GOLD level Sponsor


Feb 27, Colorado Springs, Colorado – Database Enhancement Gateway (DEG) introduces the newest GOLD level sponsor of the online resource, ALLDATA.

DEG users have the ability to help identify and fix omitted and inaccurate information found in the estimating programs through a standardized inquiry process for all three estimating systems. The database can also be utilized to verify and document necessary operations that have been addressed by other users, and confirmed by the information provider.

“We are all really proud to recognize ALLDATA for sponsoring the DEG and their support of this free resource for the Collision Repair Industry,” states DEG Administrator Danny Gredinberg.  In a push for using documented repair procedures, collision estimating information providers acknowledge the cost and labor associated with repair research, information retrieval is NOT INCLUDED in their systems. Many of the automakers individually provide the DEG with access to their repair procedure resources, and the added support from Alldata provides increased coverage to repair information that provides the DEG with a better understanding of the vehicle repair procedures utilizing OEM repair information.

The DEG does not provide end users with repair information, but the information access is a tremendous resource to help support and substantiate estimating system inquiries to further explain a required process.

DEG is funded by member dollars from the Society of Collision Repair Specialist (SCRS) and the Alliance of Automotive Service Providers (AASP) as well as corporate sponsorships from groups such as PPG, Collision Advice, ASA, Spanesi Americas. WMABA and NOW ALLDATA.
