IGA re-launches electronic standards effort

The Independent Glass Association (IGA) has re-launched its efforts to create technology standards for the industry. The committees will meet via conference call during the week of 24 October, and will establish missions and objectives, as well as a timeline for accomplishing goals.

The Independent Glass Association (IGA) has re-launched its efforts to create technology standards for the industry. This goal was originally announced in February, but according to the group: “the effort was impaired by a need for a change in management.”
“We were primed and ready to make a difference in the industry,” said current IGA president Alan Epley, owner of Southern Glass and Plastics. “We realized, however, that IGA needed to make a change at the top to better prepare us for the successes we anticipate from this and other efforts. While it was an unfortunate block in the road, we are past that now and ready to proceed at full speed.”
According to IGA officials, their goal is to: “streamline the entire insurance claims process” through the use of technology. In fact, the association is looking for industry representatives to serve on different committees, with regards to first notice of loss/electronic assignment, electronic inspection, electronic audit, provider data repository, and electronic invoicing, according to a release from the association.
The committees will meet via conference call during the week of 24 October, and will establish missions and objectives, as well as a timeline for accomplishing goals.
The deadline for joining the first conference calls is 14 October.
