The Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of New Jersey (AASP/NJ) announced this week that they will donate $2,500 to become a Gold Sponsor of the Database Enhancement Gateway (DEG) project. The Database Enhancement Gateway (DEG) is an initiative developed to help improve the collision repair estimating systems by facilitating industry feedback to the Information Providers (IPs). The DEG was created and initially funded by the Alliance of Automotive Service Providers (AASP), the Automotive Service Association (ASA) and the Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS).
“Our membership is thrilled with the inroads that the DEG has been making on behalf of our industry,” AASP/NJ President Tom Elder says. “One of AASP/NJ’s top priorities is to educate our members on how to become more profitable business owners. The DEG is a unique new concept that we are very excited about.”
The AASP/NJ Board of Directors looked at making such a strong commitment to a relatively new project closely. “We carefully consider the merits of contributions such as this,” Jeff McDowell, AASP/NJ’s Treasurer, explains. “We feel that a strong DEG will provide significant and immediate benefits to our AASP/NJ members.”
