With a history spanning nearly eighty years, Glass’s is the market leader in vehicle valuation and its guides and valuations are used throughout the automotive industry, from car dealers to insurance assessors.
Merging with Eurotax in 2000, the company now operates across 28 countries. GlassMatix’s damage assessment software is used by body shops and collision repairers to ensure accurate and consistent estimates for the repair of vehicles. This information is then provided to insurance companies handling the claim. The data is highly complex, and the method of installing and updating the data was time-consuming.
