The Independent Glass Association (IGA) has announced that it will be hosting a summit to discuss its recently announced initiative to develop an ANSI technical standard. The summit will be held on 11 February 2011 in Scottsdale, Arizona to establish a blueprint for the development of technology standards in the Auto Glass industry such as electronic first notice of loss, electronic inspections and more. According to IGA, technical standards will put independently owned glass shops in a position to go on the offensive in neutralizing the control that some insurers and their third party administrators exert upon consumer choice. IGA board member Rick Rosar, owner of Rapid Glass in Minnesota, explains: The current auto glass claims process is flawed, cumbersome and breeds distrust. When we have a competitor “inspecting“ customers“ vehicles, it“s time for an overhaul. The IGA believes that technical standards are the best way for auto glass shops and their trading partners to get back to what“s most important… servicing their mutual customer, the automobile owner. All Point of Sale Software provider sand any other interested parties are invited to attend the summit. Premier companies such as Quest Software, Mainstreet Computers, GTS Services and eDirectGlass, who has assisted with bringing this summit together, have already confirmed that they will be in attendance, affirms Dave Zoldowski, IGA board member and Auto One owner. The Independent Glass Association is a not-for-profit trade association representing the business interests of its membership, including independently owned and operated auto glass repair and replacement shops and industry suppliers across North America, as well as some international members. The association is headquartered in Syracuse, New York.
