2020: The Year in Connected Data

In an unprecedented year, our focus as a company has been on helping our clients navigate the challenges of 2020. The primary challenge has been to help CCC clients forge new ways of connecting – with their customers and with each other – amidst a pandemic that has wrought so much disconnection and isolation.

As with other industries, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought swift change to the automotive and insurance worlds, shifting customer needs and expectations and transforming business forever. Companies utilizing connected systems have been able to stay nimble to the evolving market, while those with more data silos were at a disadvantage.

Through a combination of mobile, AI, and IoT solutions, CCC is helping clients adapt by digitizing experiences, workflows, and relationships to streamline transactions, deliver actionable insights, and accelerate connections.

The articles below tell the story of an ecosystem harnessing the power of connected data to keep customers’ lives moving forward when it matters most. From our virtual inspection and mobile texting solutions to our parts e-commerce and telematics technology – CCC is powering forward, transforming industries for a new tomorrow.
