Recycled Parts Locating System Hit Greater Toronto Area

Audatex is expanding its recycled parts locating application, Real Steel Download (RSDL) into Canada, the company announced.
Audatex has introduced RSDL in the Greater Toronto Area by making over 350,000 parts available for use in the estimating process. The rollout will continue regionally in Canada throughout 2007.
RSDL enables insurance carriers and collision repair facilities throughout the U.S. to locate and insert recycled parts into Audatex estimates.
The company says that users of RSDL can see an average savings of up to US$170 per part on recycled parts and assemblies inserted on their estimates. Other benefits include time saving in locating parts and improved part availability by accessing the largest recycled part database in North America.
RSDL uses the Hollander EDEN part-locating database with more than 120 million available parts from 3,000 auto recycler participants.
“When we set out to build RSDL for Canada, our goal was to provide our customers with an efficient workflow to access real parts with real prices from local suppliers,” says John Kotsopoulos, vice-president and GM for Audatex Canada. “Shops can save about 30 minutes per day in telephone calls to recyclers and meet their DRP alternative parts utilization requirements more efficiently.”
