The Heavy Duty Service Parts Industry, whether operating in the Original Equipment Dealer Chain, Fleets, Buying Groups or the Independent Aftermarket, is challenged to ensure that the product information shared through the Sell Chain has the proper information to ensure correct fitment on equipment.
Our industry segment knows its aftermarket is very different from the light vehicle aftermarket. Whether a component within a system, or a part within a component, accurate ‘form-fit-function’ data is paramount to selecting the proper part. This applies not only to the Parts Catalog, but to as granular a level as the box labeling.
Pricedex knows it, too.
Compiling this information, along with increased demands for high quality electronic catalogs, is an increasing problem for this industry segment, which has relied on traditional methods of EDI, Inventory Management, Catalogs and Cross-Referencing to sell parts.
And with the current shifting of sales channels, and the opening of new sales channels, the industry faces a significant challenge to maintain its competitiveness. Commercial Vehicle parts are typically high value, ‘mission critical’, and expensive to ship – so the quality of product information to ensure the right part is at the right place at the right time is becoming increasingly significant to the service sector, to ensure minimal down times and minimal rework.
When it comes to Heavy Duty Service Parts, Pricedex’s deep experience in the Commercial Vehicle sector becomes your competitive advantage for maintaining a Master Marketing Data repository for Part, Kit and System data, fitment data, and cross-references; while also enabling part and system coding to the Vehicle Maintenance Reporting System (VMRS).
