Panel N' Paint
Estimating, Accounting & Management System

Panel N' Paint is a complete software solution for the collision repair industry. It includes all features needed by modern repairers including Estimating, Purchase Orders / Credit Requests, Job Cards, Invoicing, Job Costing, Workshop Management, Accounting (Debtors, Creditors, Profit & Loss, Bank Reconciliation and GST Reporting) and Imaging. A full list of features is shown below.

Panel N' Paint has a long history starting 25+ years ago in 1989. At the time, when computers were rare, a forward-thinking smash repairer decided that there had to be a better way to manage his growing shop. He purchased a computer and then set about making a program suitable for his business. This long history and strong industry involvement has made Panel N' Paint the mature and highly regarded package that it is today.

Panel N' Paint was designed from day one to be as user-friendly as possible. When training new clients, we often find that they are to generate estimates on the system within a couple of hours. The system includes all the procedures and routines carried out daily by repairers. It also includes all the financial management tools required to ensure that your business remains profitable in an industry where profits are constantly being squeezed.

Panel N' Paint has two main versions (Panel N' Paint and Panel N' Paint Plus). Panel N' Paint is the core Estimating Module with a number of additional modules available (See list below). These modules can either be purchased individually or as a complete package with Panel N' Paint Plus. To evaluate the package there’s a choice of a free trial version or a live online demonstration.
