Accelerating body repair cycle times.
Body repair is not simply a service issue, it’s a business problem in need of a solution that serves your fleet's strategy. The causes of vehicle damage can’t be fully controlled, but the repair process should be.
The most common ways companies address body repair issues are by creating an in-house body shop or outsourcing repairs to a third party. Neither of those approaches is ideal and come with their own specific problems.
As a trusted partner, we are committed to continuous improvement and process innovation because we know that broken processes lead to broken promises. That's why we are dedicated to the proprietary Rally Lean System. And our system has saved our fleet partners millions of dollars in repair costs.
Rally Lean System
Maintenance repair cycle times regularly see improvements through innovation, but body repair remains stubbornly resistant to transformation. We collaborate with our fleet partners to design and deploy the innovative Rally Lean System, utilizing lean process principles which identify and drive out inefficiencies and save our customers time and money.
The Rally Lean System Advantage

The Rally Lean System delivers world-class results for our fleet partners. But because their fleets are unique, the implementation of the System can take on different forms. Custom solutions take into consideration the unique needs of our partners and design accordingly.
