The variable nature of paint materials price changes by the leading brands has led to questions regarding our process for implementing these changes in our system.
The following outlines our process going forward:
• When the paint manufacturers announce price changes, we then request detailed data supporting this from the manufacturers
• On receipt of this detailed data we then forward to AZT for calculation and tabulation for all relevant paint operations and paint types
• Once completed this is then returned to Audatex for compilation and formatting of the relevant paint tables to reflect market usage. A calculation is then made to indicate a % adjustment for communication to the market. The relevant tables and data are then prepared for release in the system
• The typical processing time for all of the above activities is three weeks from receipt of the detailed data from the paint manufacturers
