August 2021 System Updates and News
The PartsTech team has been hard at work adding new features, supplier integrations, and improvements to the system. Here are some of the things we released this month.
Coming This Week: See Inventory at More Local NAPA Locations on PartsTech
This Thursday we're going live with an update that displays inventory at alternate NAPA Auto Parts locations near you! With this update, availability on PartsTech should more closely match what you're used to seeing in NAPA PROlink.
Previously on PartsTech, NAPA searches would display the stock at your primary location (local store), and at the nearest DC (Distribution Center.) When you placed an order that was out of stock at your primary store, the primary store would source that part from either the DC or another local NAPA location (partner store.)
Now PartsTech will display stock at all other NAPA locations near you (partner stores). Get a wider view of where your parts are coming from by checking stock at all nearby NAPA Auto Parts locations as well as the DC in one search. Your order will still be placed to and managed by your local store, but you'll have a better idea of where your order is coming from, and when it will arrive so you can better plan your day.
Here's how it will look on site:
The update will be pushed live to site on Thursday morning. We will notify all affected users when this enhancement goes live this Thursday.
