SCRS Members,

Adding a New Aluminum Rate Category in CCC - Aluminum repair is becoming more common, and if you have CCC One you have the option of adding an aluminum rate category, outlined in the procedure below. Audatex and Mitchell do not currently allow the end-user to create a new rate category
, and it must be accounted for manually.


1.  Navigate to the profile under the configure link:  









2.  Select the profile you would like to change.


3.  On the left side expand the estimating folder, then rates folder and click




4.  Click "Add Charge Category."

5.  Input the Name of the category and dollar amount. Remember the code 

     # for future use.


6.  Once the rate category is in the system you can add it to a repair or replace

     line by clicking the box next to the labor amount and inputting the code # for

     the new aluminum rate.  

The estimating databases are all intended to be used as a GUIDE ONLY - it is important to remember that the auto body professional performing the repair is in a position to thoroughly inspect, diagnose and identify the methodology and their unique cost of the vehicle damage repair.
