3M™ RepairStack™ Billables Invoicing is a CCC® ONE integrated digital tool that helps body shops create a material plan specific to a job. The system then generates a comprehensive invoice that itemizes each required product and details the amount used. Not only does this help the shop get paid for the materials it uses, but it also helps insurance companies document the materials required for a safe and responsible repair. If used during repair planning, 3M™ Billables Invoicing reduces the need for supplements later, saving both the shop and the insurance company the time and money involved with extra paperwork.

With CCC® ONE integrated, the 3M™ Performance Analytics Tool allows for seamless download of data and KPI tracking from a centralized dashboard.
You and your jobber work together to create a win-win. In fact, implementing 3M™ RepairStack™ in your shop allows for flexible auto re-ordering and on-demand ordering options. Some customers have chosen to implement a hybrid approach, so your jobber stays connected in the paint room, using on-demand ordering tools and the 3M™ RepairStack™ solution helps order all the allied products on a delivery schedule that is decided between you and the jobber.
No problem. It Is not uncommon for shops to purchase materials from multiple jobbers. 3M™ RepairStack™ allows for the flexibility your shop demands.
No problem. The key is communication and a shared goal with your body shop technicians. The interface is simple to use, and security measures can be programed to meet the needs of your shop. Removing material from the cabinet takes seconds and keeps the technicians working on jobs, not managing inventory. Additionally, on-demand training options are available to assist staff with questions from integration to software applications.
