Opus IVS making its mark in the USA

Opus IVS has announced that the USA’s 16th largest auto insurer, CSAA has endorsed its ScanSafe and DriveSafe devices, declaring that the scan tool manufacturer is “their preferred collision scanning solution for its Direct Repair Network.”

“The Opus IVS DriveSafe and ScanSafe scanning solutions meet CSAA IG’s approved billing, allowing shops to improve cycle time while performing pre-scan, post-scan, OE scanning, flash programming, and ADAS calibrations under terms reimbursable by the insurer,” Opus wrote in a recent news release. “This will benefit the shop not only by improving reimbursement rates, but also by keeping more work in the shop that has previously been sent out for third party repair.”

“CSAA Insurance Group is excited to partner with Opus IVS to help our Direct Repair Network facilities best serve our customers,” said CSAA physical damage vendor manager Dan Tessadri. “We are committed to helping our customers prevent, prepare for and recover from life’s uncertainties, and partner with organisations that focus on alignment with OEM requirements, and place high expectations on customer safety and satisfaction.” The DriveSafe and ScanSafe tools offer the ability to scan vehicles with the official OEM scan tool software or an aftermarket QuickScan software option.

“Opus IVS is proud to be the CSAA IG preferred scanning solution for its Direct Repair Network. Our team has provided OE approved solutions to dealerships and independent repairers for over a decade. Our solutions help collision repair facilities ensure they have the capability for quick scanning, OE approved scanning, programming, and the diagnostic support needed to complete a quality repair – all coupled with the ability to easily document the results,” said Opus President Brian Herron.
