Insurance estimators and claims managers had varying standards and processes. Vehicle manufacturers offered minimal guidance on collision repair standards, and vehicles had minimal on-board technology and advanced safety systems.
Farzam Afshar, an engineer by trade and collision shop owner in the late 1980s, had a vision of a future where all of these parties would want to work together, share data and create common repair standards to safely repair vehicles for years to come. From his vision, VeriFacts Automotive was born.
“Our mission is to ensure consumers have the safest vehicle repair after an accident, one that protects them and their family on the road and preserves the value of their vehicle,” said Afshar, CEO of VeriFacts Automotive. “Every year, our team provides coaching, verification or OEM certification impacting several million vehicle repairs and thousands of collision repair technicians. We expect that to continue to grow as vehicle technology and repair complexity evolve.”
