Collision Industry Electronic Commerce Association
Beginning in the early 1990s, the biggest cost related problem facing the collision repair industry was the lack of shared communication capabilities among the three major estimating products (ADP®, CCC®, and Mitchell®). Furthermore, a major contributing factor to this problem was the absence of estimating management standards. Therefore, by the mid-1990s, collision industry leaders established a need for a voluntary membership organization to address the absence of standards and guidelines in estimating management and electronic commerce. Composed of member from all segments of collision repair, the Collision Industry Electronic Commerce Association (CIECA) was created to assist auto repair professionals in the use of information technology for electronic commerce.
