CCC Information Services Inc. (CCC) announced it has created an electronic interface between its CCC ONE Repair Workflow shop management software and Würth’s SIS invoicing and inventory management software. The interface will provide their shared customers with more accurate and efficient job costing by automatically and electronically importing the Würth supplies used for repairs into the appropriate CCC ONE repair order. On-hand supplies (such as fasteners and clips) used in collision repairs account for $600 million annually in the U.S.
“Repairers are busy and have a lot of moving parts to manage at any given time,” said David Gibson, national sales manager at Würth USA. “Recording all of the on-hand supplies used while repairing a vehicle can be cumbersome and imperfect, which often results in inaccurate job costing and inefficient workflows. By creating an interface between Wurth USA and CCC’s industry-leading software, repairers can better manage their time while making sure they account for the supplies they use.”
According to Rich Tanchyk, assistant vice president, H&V Collision Center, “We started working with Würth USA a year ago to create more organization in how our on-hand materials are stored and accessed in our seven locations. When we learned Würth’s SIS software would be connected to CCC ONE, we got on board right away. We want to embrace any system that allows us to improve and better serve the customer. This interface does just that. We’re writing more accurate estimates more efficiently, and our job costing has improved. It’s a great use of technology.”
Bill Langley, director, Automotive Network Partnerships, CCC, added, “Würth USA is an important supplier to collision repairers. CCC’s focus is on bringing together the tools and information repairers need to drive efficiency throughout the repair process. By creating interfaces with their suppliers, our repair customers can save time and create more accurate, complete estimates while gaining better visibility and control over job costs.”
