Allianz and Synetiq launch sustainable vehicle repairs app

Integrated salvage and vehicle recycling company, Synetiq and insurer Allianz have launched a digital platform designed to help vehicle repairers in sourcing green parts.

Digitally integrating the supply of more environmentally friendly components, Mygreenparts provides a drastically simplified purchasing process for repairers, as well as representing a significant step towards a circular economy for the sector.

Nick Rossiter, motor damage strategy manager, Allianz Claims, commented: “Through their long partnership, Allianz and Synetiq have worked together on an ethical and sustainable approach to vehicle salvage. The Mygreenparts platform allows a seamless process for our repairers to purchase green parts, benefitting our customers, repair network and the planet.”

Allowing repairers to use their existing software system to generate an estimate for a vehicle repair, Mygreenparts automatically notifies Synetiq’s stock control system of the parts required – within the guidelines agreed with Allianz. This enables Synetiq to offer all matching items from its inventory of over 200,000 green parts. Synetiq only supplies non-safety critical green parts to be fitted, such as doors, body panels and headlamps. Parts have been graded, cleaned, safety checked and come with a declaration certificate of parts conformity, BS 10125.
The new solution will also enable repairers, insurers and fleets to measure and report the emissions and carbon savings they achieve.

Tom Rumboll, CEO of Synetiq, added: “As the only truly integrated supplier of green parts on a national scale, we’re able to handle the complete process of vehicle salvage and dismantling from start to finish. Further enhancing our leading green parts proposition to our valued insurer clients, via repairers, it is a great step forward in our common goal of automated and sustainable motoring solutions.”
