CCC Improves Online Selling Platform
Sept. 19, 2013—CCC Information Services announced Wednesday the launch of its CCC TRUE Parts Network, a parts-focused initiative with the goal of connecting the industry’s parts suppliers with CCC’s expansive customer base of repairers and insurance carriers.
The CCC TRUE Parts Network integrates with the CCC ONE Platform, providing parts suppliers of all sizes with a suite of solutions to display their parts, provide real time price quotes and electronically sell their available parts inventories as estimates are being written. Repairers using the CCC ONE Repair Workflow solution have the same functionality, plus the ability to electronically purchase parts.
“The dialogue around auto parts has commanded a lot of attention from all corners of the industry,” said David Boden, vice president of CCC’s Parts Services Group. “Because CCC already connects repairers and insurance carriers, supporting millions of claims-related transactions, the CCC TRUE Parts Network is a natural extension of our core business, and one that can create additional value for our existing customers, while creating new opportunities for parts suppliers.”
The network has been tested by a small number of part sellers, including LKQ/Keystone Aftermarket Parts.
“Participation in the CCC TRUE Parts Network has put LKQ’s salvage parts and Keystone’s aftermarket parts directly in front of repairers as they are making parts purchasing decisions,” said Terry Fortner, vice president of industry relations and market development for LKQ. “Because the parts quoting and procurement are integrated functions within the CCC ONE Repair Workflow solution, we’re already seeing more parts orders and fewer parts returned.”
