Changes to the supply of our SMR data

Earlier this year CAP acquired Derwent Management Services, the number one business in the supply of SMR data, to strengthen the quality and breadth of our data and services to fleets and manufacturers.

This means that we will be moving away from our agreement with Maintbook and we are now pleased to announce that our own Service, Maintenance and Repair data will now be used in the October book onwards. This will affect Gold Book (Car) and Monitor (LCV) SMR budgets and also our consumer Total Cost of Motoring (TCM) products.

This change is the result of a great deal of analysis and consideration as we want to ensure that our customers benefit from the best data available. We believe this can be achieved as a result of this change, providing superior vehicle coverage combined with the most rigorous research and analysis by industry experts.

This change to our in-house data is free. There will be no alterations to file layouts or format, which will remain unaffected, and the changeover of data will be instantaneous with no negative impact on systems. In fact we predict minimal disruption during this changeover period.
