CIECA Announces New Mobile and Cloud Computing Standards
Aug. 16, 2013—The Collision Industry Electronic Commerce Association (CIECA) announced Thursday that it will begin the development of new standards for mobile and cloud computing.
The new standard, BMSmc, is the third generation of CIECA standards, messages and codes, and will be available in late 2014.
CIECA is initially focusing on repair status, first notice of loss (FNOL) and scheduling during development in Java Script Object Notation (JSON). This will allow CIECA members to develop standards, messages and codes for server-to-server applications and mobile-to-mobile device and server applications.
"This is an exciting time for CIECA. Implementations have been increasing and CIECA is extending its business message suite to include mobile and cloud standards, messages and codes," said Fred Iantorno, executive director of CIECA.
