Arizona’s First Collision Reporting Center Set to Open in Tucson

Accident Support Services International Ltd. announced that it will open its first Arizona Collision Reporting Center, the second in the U.S., in Tucson, May 2018.

Accident Support Services International Ltd., in partnership with insurers and local law enforcement agencies, have been
operating Collision Reporting Centers since 1994. The Tucson CRC will be the 33rd center to open in North America and
First in the state of Arizona.

ASSI’s goal is to facilitate an active partnership between the police and insurers in post-accident care by providing
exceptional customer service, advice and assistance to citizens involved in an accident with branded handouts and
material from their insurance provider. By providing insurers with all relevant facts of the loss (first notice of loss) including
documentation and photographs of all parties within hours of the collision as their reporting to police, we help reduce
claim cycle times and related costs. The program is geared to increasing penetration of carriers’ preferred appraisal resources,
improve customer service and reduce the likelihood of physical damage and bodily injury fraud, while enabling Insurers
to significantly improve claim outcomes and policyholder retention by streamlining the claims reporting and settlement
process. For police, the program allows them to redirect scarce resources to higher priorities while still overseeing
important public safety aspects or accident reporting.
