11 April 2019: The Common Automotive Platform Standard (CAPS) has been nominated for the Technology Award at this year’s British Insurance Awards (BIAs).
This nomination follows extensive investment by CAPS in technology to further increase transparency of data exchanged, improve security to deliver GDPR-compliant data sharing as well as grow its user base.
CAPS has become the motor insurance claims industry’s preferred connectivity platform for sharing data safely and securely. It is available to any organisation involved in the motor claims supply chain and is used by more than 1,000 body shops and 50 services in the UK.
The platform is integrated with all the leading body shop management systems as well as software from companies throughout the supply chain, including parts providers, repairers, insurers, car hire providers and other elements of the vehicle repair ecosystem.
David Neave, Chair of the CAPS National Advisory Council, said: “This nomination is an incredible honour and follows years of work into making CAPS the motor insurance claims industry’s preferred and trusted connectivity platform.
“Our team continues to listen to our customers and develop technology that reduces cost, delivers value and efficiency to registered users and provides the enhanced security and transparency the market requires.”
CAPS is a secure interchange that connects body shops, work providers and insurers to all the major claims and management applications, allowing them to share data safely. CAPS enables body shops to maximise the way they use their chosen management system and allows any company involved in the collision repair process to work more effectively with its chosen partners. It also enables those companies to better serve their customers by sharing data quickly and seamlessly without needing to change their core operating system.
