LYNX Says METRYX Website has Returned to Normal Capacity

LYNX Services, the glass claims management arm of PPG Industries, has announced that to accommodate that additional traffic its METRYX website has received in the wake of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, it has increased the capacity of the website and bandwith hosting it.

LYNX is advising retailers not to delay in completing their company profiles on the registry via the LYNX Services Web site and recommends visiting the web site outside of peak demand periods - prior to 9:00AM EDT or after 5:00PM EDT for fastest updating and enrolling.

According to a company press release, one of the first participants to sign on to METRYX, during the pilot phase, was Ed Sprigler, Auto Glass Specialists, who found the process to be simple. "Once I had all of the necessary company, vehicle, and technician information in hand, the process to update my profile was straightforward and efficient," said Sprigler. "We have already seen cases where adjusting our own service territories makes sense due to the information METRYX compiles."

Jay Sampson, a partner at Ding Doctor, recognized the registry's value from the time it was announced. "The most important benefit of METRYX is the ability to differentiate our shop's capabilities, professionalism, and commitment to quality and safety, through verifiable means, like our association with AGRSS and NGA certification and accreditation," said Sampson. "It will help sort the chaff from the wheat!"
