New Part Type Feature for Estimating Systems
 
The Vehicle Damage Estimate Change message functionality has been expanded. Estimators and repair facilities can now change part types (e.g., change an OE part to a Recycled Part), they can replace multiple parts for an assembly, and damage lines with a quantity of two can be associated with multiple alternative (quoted) parts (e.g., two OE wheels on a single estimate line replaced by one recycled wheel and one aftermarket wheel). This capability is now included in CIECA’s 2018R1 release.  Learn more about this exciting new feature.
