The California Autobody Association (CAA) announced it has completed a successful collaboration with CCC Information Services (CCC), helping California auto repairers meet state repair regulations as set by the California Bureau of Automotive Repair (BAR). CAA’s membership comprises more than 1,000 individual and independent auto repair businesses in California.
Through the collaboration, CAA provided CCC with the most common compliance issues their membership encounters, and CCC developed a comprehensive set of configuration guidelines for its CCC ONE Total Repair Platform, providing suggestions on how to address each within CCC ONE. CAA and CCC will jointly present these guidelines and the corresponding steps for configuration during the NACE | CARS tradeshow this week.
“We want to publically thank the CCC team for their leadership and collaboration on this very important issue,” said David McClune, executive director, CAA. “Compliance with BAR guidelines is an ongoing concern for repairers and it’s important for our members to ensure their estimates and repair orders are consistent with current regulations. Many of our members use CCC ONE for estimating and shop management. Having that system aligned to our state-specific regulations will make it even easier and more efficient for shops to remain in compliance.”
Mark Fincher, VP, Market Solutions for CCC, added, “CCC is happy to have been of assistance to the CAA and the many shops it represents. The flexible nature of our platform makes it possible for us to support our industry partners and customers in this way.”
