Product: Crashbay.com levels the playing field for the small independent repair shops, those who are not interested in selling to a consolidator or converting into a franchise and those who are not big enough to access large insurance programs. The platform is an online open marketplace for collision repair. What’s more, it offers members access to large insurance companies as well as fleet management and commercial trade programs. It’s not rebranding or franchising or changing a single thing about their business other than pre-qualifying them for major insurance programs. Right now, the program is designed specifically for insurers, but eventually it will be in the hands of consumers who may want to pay out of pocket or go through a mobile app to find a local body shop. Think of it like OpenTable or Air BnB. It’s like booking a reservation at a restaurant but for collision repair shops.
