Give Your Shops What They Want – A Better Way to Order Parts

Your management system was designed for one reason and one reason alone…to help repair shops manage all aspects of their business in one convenient platform. It’s there to help shop owners save time, money, organize everything from customer information to RO’s to marketing and just about everything in between. You want to simplify their daily lives and to help them grow their business.

In the end, it’s all about the value your platform brings.

So ask yourself…are you making the parts ordering experience equally easy? Can your shop jump right into a comprehensive parts search engine in your SMS and immediately be able to source any parts they need right now? Or do you offer ANY parts ordering capabilities within your SMS?

PartsTech can help either way.

Is More Really Better?

If your SMS offers multiple parts ordering interfaces for different suppliers, sure, it gets the job done but is it the most efficient way to help them get parts? Probably not.

A shop manager doesn’t want to waste time clicking in and out of parts catalogs. Using different supplier interfaces is like speaking different languages. Shop managers need a one stop shop where they can source the part NOW. Multiple searches is frustrating and wastes time. For repair shops, time is money.

Your shops ultimately want to be able to find parts with one click functionality. That’s where PartsTech comes in.PartsTech connects repair shops with millions of parts both on a local scale and national (for hard to find parts). Our online parts search engine adds a level of value to your SMS that your shops will appreciate.

No Parts Ordering in Your SMS?

If your platform doesn’t currently offer a way for shop to order parts, you need to. Now.

You want your end users to see your SMS as the answer to all of their daily headaches and the one thing that makes all aspects of the business runs smoothly. But if your shop owner has to jump out of your platform to pick up the phone or open up multiple tabs to search other websites for parts, how long will it be before they begin to wonder if there is another SMS that could give them that easy access?

Don’t let them ask that question. Let PartsTech handle the parts and do the heavy lifting to make it happen.
