1-800-Radiator & A/C and Continental Auto Parts to Offer Electronic Auto Parts Quoting, Procurement and Invoicing to Repairers
Chicago, IL, February 11, 2014 -CCC Information Services Inc. announced today that 1-800-Radiator & A/C and Continental Auto Parts have joined the CCC TRUE™ Parts Network. By joining the CCC TRUE Parts Network, 1-800-Radiator & A/C and Continental Auto Parts will integrate their parts inventories with the CCC ONE® solution, offering electronic parts quoting, procurement and invoicing to repairers using CCC ONE™ Repair Workflow. CCC customers write more than 10 million repair orders each year and purchase billions of dollars in parts annually.
“Parts ordering within CCC ONE Repair Workflow is seamless,” said Allen Beale, Parts Manager for Mainline Autobody, located in Santa Maria, CA. “I can search and purchase parts from right within the same screen I’m already working without ever having to go to an individual supplier website. And, when I order a part electronically, I can also get invoiced electronically, which has cut the time I spend on each invoice from two minutes down to two mouse clicks. If all suppliers could send me their invoices through CCC ONE, life would get even easier.”
David Boden, Vice President of CCC’s Parts Services group added: “We are excited to welcome 1-800-Radiator & A/C and Continental Auto Parts to the CCC TRUE Parts Network. Each brings a level of quality and parts diversity that will complement the offerings of existing CCC TRUE Parts Network participants and appeal to our repair customers.”
