Winner of Aeromark’s Innovative Project of the Year 2011

Aeromark are pleased to announce the winner of our Innovative Project of the Year Award 2011.

Back in June this year we announced that Aeromark would be reviewing the customer projects of 2011 and recognising companies that were driving new developments using our technology. The award aims to highlight businesses that are embracing technology in order to drive efficiencies at a time when efficiency is a top priority for many business owners.


Five companies were nominated for their individual projects throughout 2011 during the search for Innovative Project of the Year, all from very different industry sectors. These companies represent the most dedicated and forward thinking operations teams Aeromark have had the pleasure of working with during the last 12 months.

And the Winner is…

We are proud to announce that our Innovative Project of the Year Award 2011 goes to AutoRestore®.

Northamptonshire based AutoRestore®, which is the UK’s leading mobile accident repair company, employs 150 Technicians who repair minor damage to vehicles in less than 1 day at customers’ homes or workplaces throughout the UK. A sister company to Autoglass, AutoRestore® originally deployed Aeromark Optimatics vehicle tracking to measure activity in the field and this year upgraded to Aeromark’s planning, scheduling and PDA workflow solutions.

Roger Marks managing director of Aeromark said AutoRestore is an innovative business, always prepared to look at ways to improve. They recognised the value of investing in a partner who could offer an integrated solution and could implement the technology in line with their needs. This project is about the staged implementation of our technology to drive efficiencies in scheduling which will continue into 2012, bringing significant ongoing benefits to the business and a reduction in costs.

Patrick Dignan, customer experience director at AutoRestore® commented We are delighted to accept this award from Aeromark. Our business is all about utilisation, which means that visibility and productivity are vital, so the move to Aeromark’s scheduling and PDA workflow modules was the next logical step for us in terms of enhancing our business processes and service delivery. Having compared the performance of separate suppliers for scheduling and tracking tasks to a single integrated solution, we believe that our partnership with Aeromark will give us a significant edge in a technology hungry automotive insurance market as well as supporting our world class service benchmarks.
