“For the past 25 years, CIECA has served the collision repair ecosystem by creating electronic communication standards that allow the industry to be more efficient,” said Kim DeVallance Caron, director of product discovery for Enterprise Holdings and chairwoman of CIECA. “With cars becoming increasingly complex, the industry is embarking on new ways to handle claims. As a result, data will need to be communicated and CIECA will help meet this need.”
DeVallance Caron said that it’s important that all segments of the industry continue to work together to adapt to the new technology being introduced and encourages all segments of the industry to join a CIECA committee, learn more about the organization and help shape the future.
