Commenting on his appointment, Davids said: “In my new role, I'll be at the forefront of expanding our reach in the ever-growing AI market. My primary focus is on cultivating a high-performance culture within the team, establishing robust customer relationships, and ensuring the flawless execution of sales operations.

As an industry leader, Audatex is recognised for its advanced technology and software platforms that assist insurance companies, repair shops, and other stakeholders in accurately assessing the cost of vehicle repairs.

Chris Wright, managing director at Audatex South Africa, commented: “Jermaine is a valued member of the Audatex team, and his promotion is richly deserved. With his level of expertise, he is well positioned to maximise Solera's extensive product portfolio, including AI and integrated technologies, and Jermaine’s new role presents an exciting opportunity to lead initiatives beyond current market boundaries. The next chapter promises to be a rewarding journey, and I look forward to seeing the impact Jermaine is expected to have on the evolving landscape of technology and innovation.
