Opus IVS, the intelligent vehicle support division of the Opus Group in Ann Arbor, and 1Collision have entered into an agreement to deploy Opus’ DriveSafe collision scanning solution to its network of independently owned collision repair centers.
“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,” says Jim Keller, president and COO of 1Collision.

We are pleased that 1Collision selected Opus IVS to bring solutions to their Affiliate partners that support the future of repairing advanced vehicles.”
