Password Auto-Fill makes DAMAGE iD Faster to Use than Ever

It is now faster to use DAMAGE iD.

We’ve added the ability to pre-fill your username and passwords, because we know how frustrating it is to perform a walk-around while trying to type those tricky passwords.

Password Auto-Fill was introduced in DAMAGE iD Android version 2.0 and iPhone version 1.0.8 in late summer 2018.

Here’s how it works for each of the different app platforms.

Android

Android is dead simple. Just enter your password the first time, and from that point on, it will be remembered for you.

The password is stored in an encrypted form, but please note that someone else using your phone could login as you and compromise your identity.

In order to remove the password, just uninstall and reinstall the app.

IPhone

IPhone uses the Apple Keychain technology to secure your passwords.

If you are using ICloud Keychain or Safari Autofill to store your passwords already, the easiest way
to use this feature is to log into the “backend” site at https://app.damageid.com with Safari and choose “Remember my Password”.

Next, login to the app. After tapping on the “Username” field, the QuickType Bar will appear at the top of the slide up keypad. Look for a little key icon (see below).

After clicking the key icon, the password which was saved on the website will appear.

If you aren’t using ICloud Keychain or Safari Autofill, you can still use Auto-Fill on DAMAGE iD by entering it manually the first time.

To enter it manually, go to your IPhone Settings and choose:
Accounts and Passwords -> App & WebSite Passwords and choose “Add Password”. Add “app.damageid.com” for the website, and your standard username and password.

From that point on, you should see the key icon and the QuickType Bar
when logging into the app.

How Car Rental Owners can Reduce Losses on Auto Damage

Car Rental agency owners know how difficult it can be to collect for damages incurred by customers. The car may be in a certain condition before the car was driven off the lot, but often comes back with damages that were never there before. Many times it can be tough to prove that such nicks, scratches and dents weren’t there before, especially when relying on old-fashioned and ineffective walk-arounds.

Car rental agencies often don’t make as much money on collision coverage as desired. Typically, customers are only asked once during the initial contract signing if they would like to purchase collision coverage, and often the answer is no.

Profits can be significantly boosted using an innovative new vehicle damage tracking software for Your Android or Apple device from DamageiD. This software effectively elminates traditional pencil and paper condition reports. More coverage can be successfully sold, and damage and fuel reimbursement can be increased.

Car rental agents can use a digital device – such as a smartphone or tablet, and follow the steps to take photos of vehicles and gas levels during checkout. Clients have a chance to review the images and are prompted a second time to accept Collision Damage Waiver. DamageiD gives agents another opportunity to sell their collision insurance, and effectively boost profits.

When the vehicle is returned at the end of the rental term, agents have an opportunity to take new photos and flag for any damage incurred. Management reviews any flagged cases that are brought forth and gas levels are compared. At this point, management has a solid case to bring forth to the customers so they are able to show the damage and gas levels, rather than have to fight to prove their case. And customers will also appreciate the fact that they won’t be held accountable for any damage that they were not responsible for.

DamageiD can be highly beneficial for both car rental agencies and customers alike.

DAMAGE iD a Perfect Fit for Fleet Sharing Inspection Reporting

Most recently, Amazon and other large companies who share delivery trucks contacted DAMAGE iD to find a solution to document the condition of the Fleet before it gets dispatched for the day. Then, upon return, the photo documentation is repeated. This process protects the driver who will not be held responsible for previous damage. It also holds the driver accountable for any new damage which occurs during his shift.
Amazon and other delivery companies like UPS and FedEx lose a lot of money on “mystery damage” in their fleet. DAMAGE iD can help solve this dilemma and keep the costs of repairing damage to a minimum by charging the insurance companies for the incurred damage.

DAMAGE iD also has an API which can help transportation and delivery services who currently utilize a software, to integrate and add this DAMAGE documentation feature seamlessly.

Next time your Company is considering how to design an inspection report, think of DAMAGE iD.

DAMAGE iD Now Using KeyStore and Saved Passwords

In a few short weeks, DAMAGE ID has launched 2 new releases, thanks to our developer/engineer, Charlie Dalsass. Here’s what he has to say, “The newest release automatically stores the username and password on the users’ device which saves the agent TIME, and ultimately $$$$, during the walk-around process. This release will really save time for users.” – Charlie Dalsass, DamageID Software Engineer.

Be on the LOOKOUT for our BIGGEST UPDATE which will further simplify and provide quick access to the documentation process.  While DAMAGE ID was originally launched at the International Car Rental Show in April, 2014, by Jack Vercollone and his crew, it has been put on the “back burner”, so to speak, while Mr. Vercollone was operating his independent Verc Car Rentals and setting up a Sixt Franchise.  Currently, the franchise failed and Jack has retired from Verc, allowing him time to be FULLY invested in DAMAGE ID. 

With the partnership of Charlie Dalsass, we look forward to a vibrant re-launch into the Car Rental Market.

Vehicle Condition Tracking for Energy Companies and Shared Vehicles

Does your Company or Municipality have a fleet of cars or trucks that are shared by multiple employees?  Does “mystery damage” occur, and no one seems to know from whence it came?

Are you losing money by paying for employee-induced damage?  DAMAGE ID could be YOUR solution!!

DAMAGE ID takes vivid, date and time-stamped images of the vehicle and stores these in “the cloud”.  Upon return of one’s shift, new images may be taken and then compared to the Outgoing photos.  Pictures don’t lie!! A picture is worth a thousand words (or dollars, in this case).

Employees who use DAMAGE ID will be held accountable for the damage that occurs on their shift.  Wouldn’t YOU drive more cautiously if you knew this to be the case??

DAMAGE iD Received Fabulous Feedback at ICRS Vegas

Current customers and fresh interest visited our DAMAGE iD booth during the International Car Rental Show in Vegas March 27-29.  Perhaps this high interest was due to the panel on which DAMAGE ID was featured regarding “Damage assessment techniques”.   Along with Ian K. from Empire Rent a Car in Brooklyn, Paula Vercollone, Verc Car Rental in SouthShore of Mass., presented the financial benefits of using common technology to report the condition of the rental both before and after the transaction with a side by side comparison, date and time-stamped.

Car Rental customers are learning the customer service benefit of protecting the customer from unwarranted charges for previous damage. It’s a win/win situation.  Customers and rental agents feel confident when reporting the amount of gas in the vehicle on the return. If a customer “forgets”, the photos don’t lie.
