A Revive! franchisee’s story of accreditation and success

Adam Smith opened his business in September 2009 and now runs a four van fleet. He recently gained his Cosmetic Repair ATA.

Adam Smith - Revive! FranchiseeRevive!’s network of expert technicians provide a mobile service repairing scuffs and scrapes to vehicles paintwork. Initially the techniques and products used resulted in inconsistencies in terms of service and quality. Now the service has really come of age with the introduction of the Cosmetic Repair ATA, an IMI backed accreditation that professional repairers can achieve, as a standard of quality

Adam says of the experience:

"When you do a job successfully for a number of years it is always interesting to review these against a new standard. With the ATA I was surprised at the new things I have learnt but I have carried these forward into my business. There is no doubt that these techniques have improved the quality of my work. Going forward it is essential that I get all of my team accredited as soon as possible."

In the month of July 2012 alone, Adam’s business turned over almost £29,500+VAT. Adam puts this down to good systems, a great service and some hard work from his team.

"I believe that with our service ethos and the quality of workmanship that we can provide, we are streets ahead of anyone else in this sector. This is why we are in demand – and I see no reason for this demand to do anything but grow. More and more people are using mobile repairers and there are few people that can match the quality that Revive! offers."

The Revive! Training Centre and Franchisee Training programme has been given IMI approval and Revive! can now train and assess candidates to award the Cosmetic ATA standard to technicians who meet the IMI’s exacting standards.
