    Session Three: Achieving Collaboration is an ongoing challenge, but what are the opportunities the collision industry has to “Optimise” business results?
    Every aspect of the collision repair industry has experienced disruption, innovation, automation, and consolidation. The one initiative missing from truly advancing our industry to new heights is optimisation. Because every industry stakeholder has a level of “waste” built into their processes, our global ability to unearth leakage limits our ability to optimise, specifically, the OEM parts supply chain. In this keynote, you’ll hear from Paul Gange (President of North America, Advantage Parts Solutions), David Shepherd (Non-Executive Director, Advantage Parts Solutions), and Tim O’Day (Chief Executive Officer, Boyd Services) suggest a new vision that would allow the industry the ability to truly work towards optimisation for the absolute benefit of everyone, including, most importantly, the vehicle owner.
