CAPS updates data standard
30th November 2021Tweet
Data exchange platform CAPS has updated its data schema to keep pace with the changes in the types of motor claims data while also enhancing security, integrity and compliance.
The CAPS schema defines the scope of the data shared on the platform and its validation during a motor claim.
The latest version enables it to validate new values while reflecting the growing integration of claims and systems used both within the application and bodyshop sectors. New fields introduced also enable work providers to add more context to the insurance provision for a claim; for example, whether the excess has been waived.
David Neave, Chair of the CAPS National Advisory Council, said, “We continue to develop CAPS to ensure that it provides effortless and seamless data transfer for everyone across the motor claims sector. It is essential for insurers, bodyshops and all other organisations in the repair ecosystem to know that they can rely on CAPS to communicate 100% of the data processed during a claim.”
The CAPS schema will be reviewed every quarter and update as necessary to meet new industry requirements.Tweet
