Cheers to a Successful Year at GT Motive!

Close up of Toasting Champagne goblets for new year

The past 12 months have been a whirlwind for the estimatics industry, with everyone on the lookout for new tools, digital solutions and innovative technologies to improve the claims process.

For us, 2022 has been about just that; change. It’s been a year full of growth for us, with expansion being one of our biggest successes, that we’re all so proud of.

Let’s take a look together, as we officially cheers to a successful year at GT Motive

We attended industry events

The 2022 U-Pol AutoRaise Rally was a brilliant event this year, and saw a total of 150 people take part in covering over 21,000 miles over the 3-day circuit.

Showcasing a convoy of classic, vintage and well-loved cars driven by colleagues from across the accident repair industry, the GT Motive team included Martyn Rowley, Richard Edwards and Luke Le Souter as part of Team Baywatch.

For rally veteran, Martyn, it was an event like no other, as he stated he loves the industry and “hopes that all the enthusiasm and energy showed over the 3 days gets passed on to any new person entering into it.”

We launched our new cost calculator

One of our proudest commitments is that GT Motive can help keep industry costs to a minimum and contribute up to 80% in cost savings.

We’ve been firmly sticking to this throughout 2022, always removing additional costs such as VIN fees, imaging fees, service fees and transactional fees, as well as any dramatic monthly fixed costs.

But, we didn’t want to just talk about these savings ourselves, we wanted to give our customers the opportunity to see it for themselves too.

That’s why in 2022 we officially launched our online cost calculator, where users can find out exactly how much funds they could save by implementing GT Motive.

After all, why pay more for less?

We signed on our 500th repairer of the year

As the GT Motive family grows, we’re seeing more and more companies open their eyes to just how great our platform can be for their claim’s operations and efficiencies, and this year we were thrilled to welcome Eastbourne Coach Finishers as our 500th repairer to sign up to GT Global.

Martyn Rowley, GT Motive’s Business Development Manager, took the honour of presenting the repairer with a brand-new tablet and team lunch on us, commenting that he “can’t wait to see what 2023 holds for us as we continue to welcome repairers across the UK and we’re working with many large insurers and collaborating with a variety of exciting companies to provide the best possible platform for our customers.”

We have launched many new collaborations

From partnering with School of Thought to help support, train, and attract young people into the automotive industry, to working with Cazoo Data Services to provide their users with free access to ombudsman approved total loss valuations, collaboration was certainly our buzz word for 2022.

And did you know that we also connected a brand-new integration with JDK Technology, to provide additional imaging services for their bodyshop customers as well?

We hit the ground running with JDK Technology, as they’re share in our values of making our platforms even more open and collaborative.

In fact, Demerie Hill, Executive Director of Product Management & Delivery commented that the integration “directly pulls claimant photos from JDK’s technology right into GT Global, to provide a service that will not only make life easier for repairers but will also give them and insurers much more visibility during the claim process.”

What’s more, Layton Davies, Managing Director of JDK Technology also expressed his delight in  “collaborating with GT Motive and supporting customers with our top of the range imaging technology. Just like GT Motive, we put bodyshops and repairers at the forefront of our values and create products and services that bring genuine solutions to the repair industry that really make the difference.”

He continued that “we create our solutions to suit the industry; solutions that the industry is crying out for,” and we for us here at GT Motive, we completely share in this desire to bring us one step closer to a more collaborative future.

And finally, we won the ABP Award for the 2nd year in a row!

Walking away from the ABP Night of Knights Awards last year with the industry’s most prestigious award for best estimating technology in hand, we felt on top of the world. Yet at the 2022 awards, we were lost for words as GT Motive were crowned The Repairer’s Choice for Best Estimating System for the 2nd year in a row!

For us, this was especially meaningful as this award is chosen by repairers, those who benefit from using our platform each and every day. This win establishes an open door to bring choice, competition, and drive innovation within a once monopolised market.

David Vella, GT Motive’s Executive Director in UK & Ireland said that “this award means so much and I have to give the credit to my team who have been absolutely amazing, their hard work and support for our customers has been brilliant… we have a compelling solution in GT Global and some great new opportunities in the roll out phase and I am so pleased to be doing what I love with people that really care”. A true achievement, and the cherry on top for an incredible year.

Looking to the future with GT Motive

As we move into a new year, our goal at GT Motive is to help create a smooth process for all stakeholders by improving efficiencies throughout the entire claims journey, so your customers can experience a quick repair, and get back on the road as quickly as possible.

To do so, our cloud-based estimating solution offers complete accuracy, as we’re able to constantly update our data points to ensure our entire supply chain have the most precise data, always. This includes new vehicle models being added bi-weekly to our OEM prices, which helps us offer a 96-98% car parc coverage, making our system a highly reliable tool for a claims department.

But don’t just take our word for it; try it for yourself. And experience a transformational, collaborative new year with us by your side.
