SCRS RDN Article—Speaker: Shift strategy as top insurer DRPs become unattainable
By John Huetter on September 30, 2019 Society of Collision Repair Specialists, Repairer Driven News
Direct repair programs offered by the nation’s largest insurers are growing unattainable to independent collision repairers, requiring shops to seek customers elsewhere, the head of NuGen IT said Friday.
NuGen IT employee owner and business development executive Pete Tagliapietra, whose company caters to both insurers and body shops, said carriers are trying to consolidate to reduce administrative costs. They’re leaning on the MSOs, he said.
Tagliapietra will discuss this state of affairs and how to adapt during “Is there a future in DRP?”, scheduled 3-5 p.m. Nov. 4 at SEMA. The session is part of the Society of Collision Repair Specialists’ Repairer Driven Education Series.
