CEI’s Kathi Croze to Present at Police Fleet Conference

CEI will be pre­sent­ing case stud­ies of how gov­ern­ment and law enforce­ment vehi­cle fleets have saved time and mon­ey by out­sourc­ing their acci­dent man­age­ment activ­i­ties at the Police Fleet Expo-West 2014 show in Kansas City, MO, April 29 through May 2.

Rep­re­sent­ing CEI at the event will be Kathi Croze, nation­al man­ag­er for gov­ern­ment fleet sales.  Ms. Croze was award­ed the Nation­al Con­fer­ence of State Fleet Admin­is­tra­tors 2014 Dis­tin­guished Ser­vice Award, and in 2012 was named one of the top women in the fleet indus­try by Auto­mo­tive Fleet mag­a­zine.

“Two of the main rea­sons gov­ern­ment fleets use CEI for col­li­sion repair ser­vices are that their repair cycle time is great­ly reduced and the data we col­lect and return to them is in an eas­i­ly man­age­able for­mat,” said Ms. Croze. “We can break down their repair costs and acci­dent infor­ma­tion so they know the who, what, when, where and how much of each acci­dent, by depart­ment. That infor­ma­tion is very pow­er­ful to them and helps make them look good in the eyes of their man­age­ment.”

Among the case stud­ies Ms. Croze will cite include state, coun­ty and city gov­ern­ments across the coun­try whose law enforce­ment agency vehi­cles are cov­ered by CEI’s acci­dent man­age­ment ser­vices. Its ser­vices include tak­ing the first notice of loss, assign­ment of dam­aged vehi­cles to pre-qual­i­fied repair shops with­in 48 hours or less, audit­ing of repair esti­mates by in-house licensed phys­i­cal dam­age apprais­ers who look for cost sav­ings, man­age­ment of the repair process to com­ple­tion, recov­ery of dam­ages caused by third-par­ty dri­vers, and com­pre­hen­sive online pro­gram report­ing.
