Role of CIECA in the Collision Industry

CIECA plays a vital role in the Collision Industry by developing IT standards, codes, and best practices that make it possible for the Collision Industry to save money.

To most of the industry, developing electronic data exchange standards and codes is not exciting work. Most would equate it to watching paint dry. To those that volunteer their time at CIECA, the work is rewarding and beneficial to the entire industry. As a direct result of CIECA.....

What can you do with the BMS?

While this may seem like an easy question to answer, the answer is a long one. The BMS currently contains 146 messages each of which performs a different data exchange for a specific business function. The 146 messages address data exchanges between companies to improve the work-flow between and within companies. More messages are added to the BMS with each new Release.
