14.50–15.05 Disruptive technologies in the claims industry
Will new technology ever fully replace an insurance engineer, physical inspections and bodyshop estimators? The pandemic is driving the adoption of disruptive technology, but what new skills and partnerships will be required to implement the new solutions… and how are we doing with this so far?

15.35–15.50 Will AI and Virtual Claims build a bridge or widen the chasm?
Insurers may be championing AI and virtual claims, but for OEMs, they’re resulting in reduced customer loyalty. For bodyshops on the front line, they’re stuck in the middle looking to the insurers and the OEMs for support. The big question in all this though is where does the customer fit in to all this?
Sean Carey, president, SCG Management Consultants

16.00–16.20 Sustainability, repairability and carbon neutrality – preparing for a better tomorrow, today (live panel debate)
The collision repair industry is a global eco system of interconnected and interdependent stakeholders of significantly different business profiles who operate in significantly different sub sectors and significantly different markets.
Yet, they are all facing the growing challenge of sustainability, repairability and carbon neutrality and all at the same time.
They must collaborate to tackle and overcome the challenge together and they would, if they knew how? Our expert panel will discuss how they can get started on this critical mission to prepare for a better world, today.

16.20–16.40 Electric vehicles – is electrification moving too fast or are we moving too slow?
Governments are forcing the change from internal combustion to electric vehicles. There are already more than 10 million EVs worldwide and this is already causing a doubling up of supply chains and confusion in repair methods for bodyshops. The EV market is not increasing at the same pace in every region and so it is difficult for owners to plan or react effectively. Solera is tracking these regional differences to help bodyshops and the supply chain understand if electrification is moving too fast or are we moving too slow?
Arnaud Agostini, VP International Sales, Solera
