CCC ONE Adds Procedure Data For 2015 Ford F-150
The automotive industry has been gearing up for the 2015 Ford F-150 since the all new, all-aluminum, model was showcased at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. It just rolled off the line in November 2014, but with its new design - consisting of lightweight aluminum in both the body and bed - repairing this truck will require new and special repair procedures. To bring this repair data to shops and insurance appraisers, CCC Information Services announced that its CCC ONE Repair Methods, the industry’s only repair procedure solution available as an integrated feature within an estimating workflow, now includes repair procedure data for the 2015 Ford F-150.
“Ford’s use of lightweight aluminum throughout the body and bed of its top-selling Ford F-150 received a lot of attention and generated important conversations about repairability throughout the industry,” said Mark Fincher, Vice President, Market Solutions, CCC Information Services (www.cccis.com). “We’ve seen more than 400 2015 F-150 estimates in the three short months since it debuted. Part price and labor time data have been available to estimators, but getting the repair procedure data into the hands of customers was a top priority. We’re excited that data is now live in CCC ONE.”
CCC ONE Repair Methods provides access to repair procedure information for thousands of vehicle types, helping repairers and insurers complete thorough, accurate estimates. Because users don’t need to leave the estimating screen to get the repair data they seek, the information gets utilized quickly and efficiently, according to the company.
