This year (2016) we saw an increase of users past 1,000. Not bad for an 8 or so year old business in a very specialised field.
Those 1,000 plus users produced well over 200,000 quotes valued at near enough to $500,000,000 (half a billion dollars) worth of work.
The USERS have also finally organised the CRASHZONE COMMUNITY REPAIR NETWORK (CCRN), a volunteer based support network, to assist not only members but the repair network in general.
CCRN now has over 125 members, who can utilise services from lease and Equipment finance, Private Assessing Services, expertise in various fields like ORM, P-NET, NTAR ESTIMAGE along other industry services like Parts Check and AFC.
The educational Web-In-airs have been to great benefit to those attending
CCRN has held road shows in Adelaide, Perth, Darwin, Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne, along to personal visits to places like Alice Springs, Cairns, Wagga, Broken Hill, and Newcastle. just to name a few.
CCRN has attended on the member’s behalf several industry events in Sydney and Melbourne and met with Insurance leaders, promoting our brand
CCRN has conducted demonstrations of Crashzone to Car-Craft, AMBRA and other Industry groups along the way.
CCRN has created a social media platform exclusively for the CCRN members and continual daily input has provided some much needed assistance for the members.
Both Crashzone and CCRN look forward to providing a sustainable service into the 2017 year and beyond.
This service would not be achievable without the volunteer hours of people like Sam Burt (Vice Chairman), Ian Fairlie (Vice Chair), Winston O’Keefe (Treasurer) Adam Martin (Chairman) Tammy Murphy, (research) and the many people that contribute throughout the year to make the system work like Jeffrey Hill (IT)
Some big thanks must go to our sponsors, like Walter Rapport from AFC, Ben Cardy from EZI-Methods, Hilly, (for his estimate advise) and others that have contributed in some small way.
And yeah, I do a bit as well (you can recommend me for a Knight Hood any time )
The key event for the 2017 Calendar will be the BREAKFAST at the EXPO in Melbourne. Keep the dates clear and book early. There will only be 100 tickets available for free to members. In the unlikely event, some are left over, they will be for sale for $50 before the event. There will be NO tickets available on the day. MORE DETAILS TO FOLLOW.
