Who We Are
Collision Resources, Inc. was founded in 2001 by David McCreight and Kent Carlson. Their driving purpose was to help collision repair centers to become more profitable. They understood the self-inflicted damage poor scheduling was having on repair centers, so they created an easy-to-use software solution, the CR Auto Scheduler®, to help improve the flow of cars being scheduled into the repair process. In 2017, David McCreight and Lance Getz joined forces to develop an additional product called the CR Visual Production ManagerTM, a web-enabled production management tool that allows shops to see the flow of production through the repair process. The combination of these two products is the simplest and strongest set of tools on the market today that help a shop create level flow into and through the collision repair process!
What We Do
Managing work in process is key to having the best in class cycle time for collision repair centers. Repairers need a solution that is continually learning, monitoring, adjusting, and recommending the next slot to bring in a car. With our CR Auto Scheduler®, we help collision repair centers create a level
workflow into their shops, and the help them maintain a level workflow through the entire repair process with our CR Visual Production ManagerTM. Our team starts by working with collision repair centers to develop a scheduling matrix that is customized to their shop and balances the workload throughout the week. We then help them define their daily work goals and visual indicators to make the CR Visual Production ManagerTM their own. With the use of our two programs, we help you take control of the scheduling and production of your repair center, and make you wonder how you ever did it before without the use of these tools!
