E-commerce technologies are changing the automotive parts industry in way that no one could have imagined just a decade ago. Manufacturers used to rely on giant paper catalogs sent to distributors to get their catalog out to market. With the Internet and the emergence of e-commerce channels, large and small, it signaled a shift to a streamlined and more efficient approach to pushing a product to suppliers.
But even as more e-commerce choices began to grow, another problem came with it. How could a manufacturer keep up with the demand for instant information for distributors? With product lines growing at breakneck speed due to new auto technologies, how do manufacturers get all that new data out to the market quickly and accurately? The pace of new technologies adopted by both suppliers and their shops has been rapid, to say the least.
But we saw this coming. We are PartsTech and we are revolutionizing how brands like yours get seen.
Who Are We?
PartsTech was built with installers in mind. We knew there was a need in the industry for a faster and easier way for shops to source parts without having to spend all day calling around to their suppliers or wasting time clicking in and out of several websites to find the parts they need right now.
Our cloud-based, online parts search engine provides a direct connection to over 20,000 retailers & distributors, over 1600 brands, and 7 million parts (and counting) …all within one search platform. Think Expedia, for parts. One search, millions of parts. That is what today’s shop needed and we answered the call.
With PartsTech, ordering parts is easy for repair facilities. Users can enter the plate or VIN and the shop’s preferred vendors will populate first showing them who has the exact part the need with current product details, pricing and images. Instead of calling around or working within 4 or 5 tabs on their computer screen. PartsTech shows them everything they need in one place.
It’s the difference between having a car sit on the lift for hours or completing the job quicker to move on to the next. Time is money and when shop owners find what they need fast they can focus on more important aspects of their business such as marketing and training.
