Founded in 1976 as Autodata Manuals

ABF Systems, Inc. was founded in 1976 by Thomas LaVielle as Autodata Manuals. We developed and published estimating guides for the collision repair and insurance claims industry. We specialized in estimating guides for LKQ replacement assemblies and we also published a labor time guide on complete vehicle refinishing. We earned a reputation for providing realistic and accurate data. Our customer base consisted of over 6,000 body shops and insurance adjusters throughout the United States and Canada.

In 1991, we developed and began marketing collision estimating and shop management software for the auto body repair industry. Great emphasis was placed on ease-of-use and added value for our customers.

In 1992 we changed our corporate name to ABF Systems and focused on collision shop consulting and software development. We sold the rights of our estimating data to Hearst Business Publishing, the parent company of Motor Information Systems. The LKQ data was then included as part of the Motor Crash Estimating Database.

We are located in the small town of Sutter Creek in the California Foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains(between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe).

Having owned and managed several shops, Thomas LaVielle has extensive experience on the "business side" of a collision repair facility. He also has extensive experience in business software development.

During the last 20 years, we have built a solid reputation for software that is easy-to-use and dependable. With input from our customers, we are able to produce the most comprehensive collision shop management system at the lowest possible price.

We will continue to update and enhance our products to provide our customers with the very best software.

 

Our Goals
  • To maintain the highest quality standards for our products.
  • To provide the best customer service possible.
  • To  promote an inclusive workplace and help the community.
