CCC Launches Connected Data Exchange
Announces 14 new companies are lined up to join its network to share connected vehicle and telematics data.
CCC Information Services Inc. announced today the availability of CCC X, a data exchange that helps convert connected data into actionable insights and makes it available for use across the CCC network. CCC also announced today that its network is set to expand to include 14 new companies who will contribute and leverage connected and telematics data via CCC X. The newly announced additions represent connected device providers, diagnostics providers, enablers of usage-based insurance (UBI) programs, and other service providers.
Powered by the CCC ONE platform, CCC X can aggregate and normalize connected data from a rich variety of sources, including beacons, dongles, mobile applications, fleet and professional devices, and connected cars. Data accessed via CCC X can be integrated into existing insurer business operations for UBI programs, underwriting, increased claims automation, and more. Similarly, it can be integrated into software services for repairers on the CCC network.
“The true value of connected data is rooted in what you can do with it,” said Mac Fraser, GM, Telematics, CCC. “Unlike other exchanges, CCC X enables customers to put connected data to work. It works in conjunction with the CCC ONE platform where data is enriched, becomes more meaningful, is easily shared with users who value it, and can then be deployed into real-life experiences for our customers and the consumers they support.”
Key among the experiences CCC X can help transform is the claims and repair process. CCC X can ingest crash data at the point of impact that can be used to increase the digitization of the claims process – including first notice of loss, determining the potential severity of injuries, estimating damage severity, repair scheduling, and beyond.
CCC Network Additions
The new companies announced today that are joining the data exchange will support a variety of use cases, including UBI, telematics-enabled claims, repair and safety-related services, and consumer engagement and loyalty programs. CCC X uses open application program interfaces (APIs) to create fast and easy connections with companies that contribute as well as create value from data.
