For the past 10 years, the Beckman family thought about opening an auto recycling facility. After all, they already had a used car dealership in downtown Waterloo, Iowa. Auto recycling seemed like a natural fit.


CCC Information Services Inc. (CCC) has brought the insurance and automotive recycling industries together. CCC (www.cccis.com) announced it has acquired Actual Systems of America (Actual Systems), previously owned by Solera Holdings, Inc. (www.actual-america.com).


Lee Iacocca once said, “The speed of the boss is the speed of the team.” Owners and managers of auto recycling facilities know just how accurate this is. They know it’s on them to lead by example, which includes creating an organized business that can quickly, and accurately, fulfill the needs of customers. Philippe Clermont developed Power-DB with this in mind. His program gives auto recyclers the data they need to run their businesses as efficiently as possible.
