Safelite AutoGlass (Columbus, OH) has launched apps for iPhone and Android smartphones that provide customers with a way to assess damage — chipped windshield, cracked windshield, broken side window and broken rear window — as well as schedule an appointment.
In related news, Safelite has begun the national roll-out of a windshield recycling program. The program started in markets near its recycling plant partner in 2011. Implementation on the East Coast is nearly complete. It will then expand to the West Coast.
