Auto Data Direct (ADD) and Collision Management (CM) pair up to provide vital tools for the towing industry.
Auto Data Direct, Inc. and Collision Management (CM) www.collisionmanagement.com have collaborated to integrate their respective services to create the first fully electronic management system for the tow industry. Jim Taylor, president of ADD said, “After eight years of providing the Florida tow industry with electronic certified mail and electronic motor vehicle records, ADD began to explore market opportunities in Texas. Over the years we had met the guys from Collision Management, Nigel, Drew, and Chris, at various tow shows and we both recognized that each company was a solid and reliable vendor. However, it only took one walk across the aisle and a day or two of discussions to realize that by collaborating we could develop something truly unique, a home run for the tow industry and a major cost reduction for VSF’s, by seamlessly integrating our respective products."
Both companies remain independent entities, but for Texas tow operators and VSF owners, the availability of these seamlessly integrated products provide a means of staying fully TDLR office compliant within the increasingly complex financial and regulatory requirements of the Texas tow industry. Staying compliant is a major challenge for many operators, but it is not the only benefit; seamlessly integrating both VTS Classic and DirectPost‐Office products will save time and money for customers by streamlining and organizing their administrative processes.
