The Collision Industry Electronic Commerce Association (CIECA) recently held its semi-annual member meetings virtually and covered topics including: scanning and calibration, repair order and status, vehicle damage and imaging, as well as first notice of loss and glass. Each topic was discussed in a 30-minute session and was followed by a question and answer period.
The meeting hosts, Charley Quirt, *former CIECA technical project coordinator and Paulette Reed, current CIECA technical project coordinator, began the scanning and calibration meeting by explaining the association’s committee development process.
“As part of CIECA’s Committee Development Process, a workflow document is created to help define which messages will need to be identified and what they will communicate. The messages can then be developed for the industry,” said Quirt. “After a workflow was created by the CIECA Calibration Committee, it was presented to the Collision Industry Conference (CIC) in July for use by the industry.”
According to Quirt, the CIC committee is looking into the possibility of creating a video that explains the calibration workflow.
Both Quirt and Reed went through the process of finding specific committees and viewing the latest documents on the association’s website.
*Editor’s note: Quirt was in his final week at CIECA when the meetings were taking place and Reed was transitioning into her new role. Quirt’s last day as the technical project coordinator was August 28, 2020.
