CCC Activity Reports on
These reports have been around for over 5 years. Are you using them?

Any US recycler subscribed to’s basic web service has the option to send data to CCC’s Recycled Parts Service (RPS) for use by insurance adjusters and DRP shops. If you are a contributing recycler, CCC Activity Reports have been available to you for over 5 years. They show you how RPS uses this information as it applies to your business and your region.

There are three activity reports; the first is the Recycler Report, which gives you information specific to your business. It will show you information such as the number of times RPS considered your parts in an estimate and the number of collision shops that consider your business a preferred supplier. The Recycler Report will also tell you the top vehicle models and years considered by RPS when you were a preferred supplier and had the part in stock.

The State Report shows you the top 100 models considered by RPS (and the most commonly searched years of that model). The top 100 models are also available for your local regions in the Regional Report.

All of these reports are available for one-month, three-month, or six-month periods, so you can choose the most effective way to view your information. This information is gathered from the time you begin sending your data to CCC and records are retained for one year, so if you begin to access them today you can immediately see the usage trends in your business and plan strategically. For more information on how to access these reports, contact your support representative.
