Under the agreement, the collision scanning solution will be deployed to 1Collision's network of affiliate locations.

DriveSafe is fully integrated with CCC ONE software and data to provide shops with one easy-to-use collision solution, the company says. 

“Opus IVS is proud to be the collision solution for 1Collision and is looking forward to supporting its Affiliates across the U.S. with diagnostic scanning, calibration, remote programming and live expert support,” said Brian Herron, president, Opus IVS. He added, “Our team has provided OEM-endorsed solutions to dealerships and independent repairers for over a decade. Our DriveSafe product provides collision repair facilities with the capability for aftermarket quick-scanning, OEM-endorsed scanning, programming and ADAS calibrations backed by live diagnostic support to complete a quality repair – all coupled with the ability to easily document the results.” 

“1Collision Affiliates are dedicated to being the preferred collision repair centers in the market areas they serve,” said Jim Keller, president & COO, 1Collision. “We are excited to partner with Opus IVS, a leader in OEM-endorsed diagnostic technology and remote programming and support, to provide our Affiliates with a first-class, OEM-endorsed diagnostic tool to help complete high-quality, safe and proper repairs in a timely and customer-friendly manner. The Opus IVS DriveSafe solution totally supports our focus on constantly improving the auto body repair process and utilizing our unique SMART Performance System to deliver the results, technical training and management expertise that insurers require.”
