CCC Can Now Integrate With Pinnacle
CCC Information Services (CCC) announced it has signed an agreement with Actual Systems of America (Actual Systems) to integrate the company’s Pinnacle Professional automotive recycling software with CCC’s parts-supplier solution, CCC TRUE™ Parts Network.
A CCC press release on the agreement claimed the integration between the two solutions will create a seamless connection between recyclers using Pinnacle Professional and CCC’s expansive base of collision repair customers for electronic quoting, procurement and invoicing of recycled parts. CCC collision repair customers write more than 10 million repair orders each year and purchase billions of dollars in parts annually.
“(Actual Systems) has developed impressive recycler management software that has become the backbone of many yards across the country,” said Jim Dickens, general motors, CCC Parts Services Group. “We’re excited to work with Actual Systems to bring their customers a solution that integrates sales and invoicing capabilities into their existing workflow, while creating a direct connection between Pinnacle Professional customers and an active buying community of collision repairers who seek an easy, efficient way to purchase recycled parts.”
“The integration between Pinnacle Professional and the CCC TRUE Parts Network will strengthen our footprint within the industry and bring new and innovative solutions to benefit Pinnacle users and the recycling community,” added Peter Bishop, managing director for Actual Systems. “This integration will be a significant step in closing the gap between collision repairers, insurers and recyclers by providing seamless, direct access to recycled parts. With CCC as the leading provider of sophisticated software solutions for collision repairers and insurers coupled with Pinnacle’s progressive user base, we believe that this integration will be a game changer for the industry.”
Actual Systems was purchased by Solera Holdings, Inc. in May 2012. Solera is the parent company of both Audatex, like CCC is an automated insurance claims software solution, and Hollander, another auto recycling inventory management system.
