Our Fight for Competition

Tractable uses the speed and accuracy of artificial intelligence to visually assess cars and homes. Our solutions aim to help people work faster and smarter while reducing friction and waste – better for businesses and the planet.

Our AI-powered solutions process more than $7 billion in vehicle repairs and purchases annually, and connect everyone involved in insurance, repairs, and sales of cars and properties. Founded in 2014, Tractable is the AI tool of choice for over 20 world-leading insurance and automotive companies, many from the Fortune Global 500.

For too many years, we have seen the U.S. auto collision and insurance ecosystem blocked from working with the technologies its participants need. In March 2024, we took legal action against CCC Intelligent Solutions for what we allege is anticompetitive conduct that harms that ecosystem, stifles innovation and restricts customer choice.

We want participants in the market to be able to take control of their workflows and data, integrate best-of-breed technologies, and deliver faster, simpler, more competitive service to everyday Americans, who pay for auto insurance as a life necessity.

Tractable’s allegations against CCC are on file in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.
