December 2, 2020, Westlake, Texas – Solera Holdings, Inc. (“Solera”), a global leader in risk and asset management data and software solutions for the insurance and automotive industries, today announces the acquisition of InSyPro. This transaction follows a successful three-year strategic partnership that has seen the creation of a truly integrated end-to-end Bodyshop Management Solution, providing real-time visibility into operations, anytime, anywhere on any device. The acquisition will strengthen the continued development of the Solera ecosystem that supports the automotive industry at every touchpoint across the claims process with intelligent data automation.
Solera will invest significant resources to globally scale and accelerate the product enhancement roadmap of InSyPro’s existing state-of-the-art end-to-end Bodyshop Management Solution, PlanManager. PlanManager enhances the repair management process for its users and their customers by providing a digital-first management and triage solution, using apps and integrated two-way customer communications. This ultimately increases technician utilisation by 10% and significantly reduces administrative time by 60 minutes per claim through unrivalled intelligent data-assisted automated planning.
Commenting on the acquisition, Evan Davies, Chief Technology Officer of Solera, said “Solera delivers efficiency gains through intelligent, integrated solutions that provide a superior customer experience. PlanManager delivers this by providing users the tools and intelligent data needed to run an efficient workshop, enabling real-time tracking of all bodyshop management tasks and vehicle repairs. We welcome InSyPro into the Solera family and look forward to continuing to build on our partnership and global solutions portfolio.”
The leadership of InSyPro, Tony Delodder and Martine van Campenhout, will join the Solera team as part of the Global Product and Delivery Organisation to support the integration and international roll-out of PlanManager. Tony Delodder, Managing Director of InSyPro, said “It felt a natural evolution to join our closest technology partner. As part of Solera, we plan to invest and rapidly scale our new software to deliver competitive advantage across the claims eco-system.”
Dave Shepherd, Regional Managing Director of Solera, said “Repairers now, more than ever, need innovative, intelligent, technology to run tomorrow’s bodyshop. The combined expertise of the InSyPro and Solera teams will enhance the PlanManager platform to build integrated solutions which continue to grow and develop with the changing needs of vehicle repair complexity, heightened customer expectations and work provision requirements.”
