Welcome to the official Combined Computer Technology - About Us - web page, home of the CC3 management system. CCT published its first piece of software for the body shop industry 20 years ago, and today CCT software has been installed in shops in 40 of the 50 states, from Alaska to Florida. CCT has grown due to the collaboration of thousands of body shop owners, controllers, accountants, body shop managers, parts managers, and office personnel who have contributed ideas that have made the CC3 management system so successful. Because we have been involved exclusively with body shop management system software for the last 20 years, we are better able to take you beyond typical accounting and jobcosting solutions. At CCT we care about making your business better, stronger, and more efficient, and taking your shop beyond QuickBooks.
I started off my career by painting cars. Before earning my degree in accounting, before working in software development, and before developing CCT to what is has become today, I began with work that got my hands dirty, work that involved personal interaction between me and the vehicles I loved to work on. This aspect of personal interaction and hands-on knowledge is part of the inspiration that fuels CCT.
Part of the driving force behind my experience in this industry is the full scope of knowledge I have attained in a multitude of areas of the business. I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business/Accounting from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 1986, knowing I wanted to curve my career towards software development. After college, I worked with Mitchell International for 5 years supporting, developing, and marketing their management systems.
CCT has mastered the art of integrated accounting and document management in the body shop business in ways that the other systems have not. Most competitors simply do not understand how important the relationship is between accounting and jobcosting in a body shop, and therefore the other softwares available can't tell you with total accuracy what your costs are, and indeed what you should be selling your services for. My associates are trained to strengthen this relationship and are committed to delivering the best body shop management system, no matter the size of your shop, at a price that represents superior Return on Investment. We strive to be the best in the business - here today, here tomorrow.
Feel free to call me at any time.
