GT Motive Estimate Embraces Innovation in the Automotive Industry by Including the Information on the i3 -the First Electric Vehicle from BMW

In its issue of July from its database of technical information

MADRID, SPAIN -- (Marketwired) -- 07/21/14 -- Editors' Note: There are two photos associated with this press release.

GT Motive has included the i3, BMW's first electric vehicle, in the July issue of GT Motive Estimate, its estimating solution. GT Motive Estimate contains technical information for estimating breakdowns, claims and maintenance, with references, labour times and prices for over 36 makes and 928 models -95% of passenger cars in Europe.

The company is currently involved in an ambitious international expansion in Europe, adding these developments in its advanced technical information database to a new generation of business platforms for the insurance industry and for vehicle fleet management.

In addition to this news item of interest to the repair industry in Europe, GT Motive Estimate makes it possible to exactly identify OEM spare parts to ensure greater speed and efficiency in the repair process through its VIN Query application. The unique listing of spare parts of GT Motive Estimate helps to identify new materials, such as aluminium and high-strength steel, through a colour palette.

Aluminium is a material that requires different repair techniques from those required by steel, but this material has been used, to a greater or lesser extent, for a long time in the manufacture of automobiles, so repair shops are more familiar with the required repair techniques. This time, the composition of safety cells, which are made of reinforced plastic with carbon fibre, is new.

This is a challenge for workshops, as they will have to invest resources in training and equipment.

GT Motive Estimate adapts its board navigation, especially in the engine area. This has been a challenge for GT Motive, since the existing specific information is not very extensive. A major effort has been made to make documentation comprehensive prior to its development.

According to Damien Dolan, Senior Director Business Information and Technology, "GT Motive is an European company dedicated to the development of management solutions of car crashes, maintenances and breakdowns to the automotive industry. Our solutions provide the technology which allows to obtain the best results and to restore the normal in day to day after a crash car or after a breakdown of the vehicle. This is part of our committed with our customers in Europe and with Investment in R&D&I. Of the 28 million planned investments for 5 years, about 5 million euros has been committed since 2012."
