Who are pinetree consulting?
Pinetree Consulting have nearly thirty years of experience within the UK Bodyshop industry.
We originally developed the pioneering and successful 'Workshop Manager' software for ICI Autocolor and in doing so laid the foundations for our now unparalleled market knowledge. In 2000 Pinetree launched the first version of the Windows based 'Advance' Bodyshop Management system, winning the prestigious Bodyshop Magazine Innovation Award the following year.
Since 2001 Pinetree Consulting has been owned by PPG Industries, providing software and services to the automotive refinish industry. Customers therefore benefit from the flexibility of an independent organisation, coupled with the reassurance of continued long-term support and development through the financial investment of a major global company.
Our software solutions are designed to meet the needs of various sizes and types of customer ranging from low volume independent repairers through to large groups, from franchised dealers to commercial transport, from localised repair networks through to accident management organisations and insurance companies.
Pinetree continues to innovate with products that offer the highest level of business control and sheer wealth of management information; some of the many reasons why Pinetree Consulting continues to have an unparalleled customer portfolio.
Our design philosophy
Our core philosophy is to deliver software solutions that absorb the complexities of modern bodyshops and other stakeholders in the automotive repair industry to provide unparalleled information and control whilst remaining user friendly. We achieve this through an ongoing development programme which continually provides innovative solutions to the business challenges faced by our customers, a policy recognised through various industry accolades.
