Where does all this data come from?
AutoBody Alliance is a product of Quality Claims Solutions (QCS), a prominent services
provider in the insurance and automotive repair industry. Over the past several
years, QCS has been gathering data on automotive repair facilities through day to
day operations in other products in order to build up to the offering of AutoBody
Through this data we were able to begin the product by identifying thousands of
repair facilities throughout the United States. After launch, the product has been
able to maintain it's own data by participating shops creating accounts to add
and maintain their listings going forward. At this point all data about individual
shops is maintained by the shop owners themselves who log into the website and maintain
their own listings.
