Is It Time For A Pay-as-you-go Approach to Repair Data and Estimates

Is It Time For A Pay-as-you-go Approach to Repair Data and Estimates

We live in a world where a pay-as-you-go approach to acquisitions and to some part, lifestyle choices more generally, are increasingly becoming the norm. As they should. Why pay for something we don’t use all the time. Or indeed, ever. It’s simply not justifiable.

Mobile phone networks were instrumental with a pay-as-you-go mentality, identifying that customers don’t always want to get tied to long term contracts.

While in more recent times, both motor insurers and household energy providers have created pay-as-you-go policies, recognised the need to provide greater flexibility for consumers.

Cutting Estimate Costs, Not Our Service and Reach

At GT Motive we have adopted the same thinking and applied it to accessibility to our repair data and estimate costs. Let us explain.

Think of our competitor’s set-up as akin to gym membership. Not only do you pay a fee for something you use when you’re using it (that bit makes sense, obviously), but the majority of the time you end up paying for access to gym floors and classes that you never use or attend during the course of a month. So, you’re getting nothing in return.

Other repair data providers not only charge a fee for the estimates, but in addition to this bill users for licenses, support, software and solutions on a monthly basis. Irrespective of whether or not they’ve used any of this. This is non-negotiable and remains in place regardless of how many estimates you do.

Another twist on fees is the pricing bracket, if you’re at the top end for a set volume you may feel that you are better off, if you’re at the bottom end though your ‘additional’ non-transactional fees may be as much as 85% of the price of each estimate… that’s not something anyone can put in a cashflow forecast.

Let us Be Your Flexible Repair Data Friend

Whereas with GT Motive we’re far more flexible!

And appreciate that nobody should be paying for something they never use. Giving successive national lockdowns as a good example of how our service provisions differ over our rivals in this sector.

Many charged a monthly fee in exchange for nothing, as many repairers would have been either shut or working at half volume during the recent pandemic.

Our transactional model is as simple as it reads. With GT Motive there is a fee when you create and submit an estimate, but that’s where it begins and ends. Thereafter, you are charged for what you request and facilitate. Nothing more, nothing less. So, if you’re a repairer, you could easily save up to 50% of what you’re currently paying.

Just think about that.

Our mantra is pay for what you use. And not a penny more for something you don’t.
