A Deeper Dive...
As you know WORLDPAC is one of the more complex integrations on PartsTech. WORLDPAC employs a different set of part numbers called "WP numbers" across their entire catalog. Each "WP number" maps to a corresponding manufacturer number for any given product. We work very closely with WORLDPAC to make sure our 2 systems can communicate effectively and show customers comprehensive results comparable to WORLDPAC's own speedDIAL product. Recently WORLDPAC provided to us a catalog update that allows PartsTech to show you more products, more images, and better part number visibility on site.
We're constantly working to build the best parts ordering system for repair shops. period. We will continue to work closely with WORLDPAC as well as our other vendors to make PartsTech faster, more comprehensive, and more accurate. That's our commitment to you, our customers.
