October 31st saw the return of the annual Business Car Awards, hosted at the Hilton Tower Bridge in London.
Judged by panels made up of experts from the fleet industry, including car manufacturers, fleet managers and fleet suppliers, the awards are a key fixture in the automotive industry awards calendar, and we are very proud to have been highly commended for the Innovation Award for our weDeploy technology.
weDeploy is a cloud-based software solution used by fleet operators to instantly deploy a damaged vehicle into the National repair network. From First-Notification-of-Loss (FNOL), a completed deployment can be made in less than 2 minutes by the client. Furthermore, once a deployment has been confirmed, the weDeploy system will send the right claim information to the chosen repairer often based on location. The application is fully customisable by the client, from branding the screens, to integrating weDeploy into any other software application the client has.
The application harnesses the power of the ‘Intelligent Deployment System’ (IDS) module within National’s system, with real- time information on each of its 400+ BS 10125 accredited repairers across the UK. This is perfect for when National control the deployment and repair of the vehicle.
Our system successfully deploys vehicle repairs to any given network in an automated and efficient way, digitalising the deployment journey and saving manual call-centre tasks.
As one of the five categories awarded in the Techies classification, the Innovation Award recognises advances in innovation from apps to vehicles, and with award-winning software at the heart of what National do, being honoured for representing this is an accolade we will always strive for.
With 2020 on the horizon, National are looking forward to launching new software, and the drive to make accident repair easier, safer and more accessible will continue to take centre stage in our operations; to be the repairer of choice.
We look forward to the Business Car Awards 2020, watch this space!
