CCC Assembles Industry Panel to Provide Estimating Insight

With the formation of its new Technical Advisory Panel, CCC Information Services Inc. says it’s introducing an increased level of transparency into updates to CCC’s estimating solution. The Technical Advisory Panel – comprised of external industry members representing collision repair facilities, auto manufacturers, automotive refinish manufacturers, industry educators, insurance carriers and database providers – will review modifications and provide recommendations affecting estimate value. In addition, CCC will have three panel representatives with more than 65 years of practical collision repair and estimating experience.

“Providing transparency into CCC’s decisions will strengthen our solutions and will benefit the industry,” said CCC’s Automotive Services Group General Manager Jim Dickens. “This panel will represent an industry voice prior to moving forward with any changes that go into production. Collision repair technology is emerging at such a fast pace that it’s critical to quickly tap a collaborative process that helps our customers write estimates that reflect a quality repair in accordance with MOTOR Guide to Estimating.”
