Fort Wright, Kentucky — October 21, 2013 — Car-Part.com has announced several enhancements to Car-Part Pro, its parts marketplace for professional repairers and insurers.
Car-Part Pro and Car-Part Messaging combine to read and modify estimates using the CIECA EMS standard, including Mitchell, CCC and Audatex estimates. The company claims that this simplifies the workflow for sourcing parts directly from estimates. Insurers and repairers can also use Car- Part Messaging to facilitate real-time communication with over 3,000 part sellers.
All repairers on Car-Part Pro gain access to part ordering capability. The “Order Part” button automatically performs a real-time part availability check with supported inventory systems.
Car-Part Pro’s new “Seller Order Manager” helps part sellers manage online orders with an easy-to-use web interface and real time order notifications via Car-Part Messaging.
Car-Part Pro says its marketplace includes parts from 4,900 recycled, aftermarket, and discount OEM part sellers. Repairers and insurers can specify delivery times required to meet cycle time goals and receive real-time delivery information from part sellers and 3,900 additional supply chain partners. The company says this combination provides the most robust alternative parts results available in the collision industry.
Repairers and insurers can create custom profiles to see only results that meet their designated supplier service level and part criteria. Car-Part currently certifies 900 part providers who have committed to SLAs. Part filtering capabilities include ARA part grading, CAPA and NSF aftermarket certifications, and aftermarket validations.
“We are pleased to provide highly-customized results in one to two seconds, greatly simplifying alternative part selection and procurement,” says Jeff Schroder, CEO of Car-Part.com.
In 1998, Car-Part.com launched the first recycled parts marketplace on the web. Car-Part.com offers a full suite of management tools for auto recyclers. Car-Part.com and Car-Part Pro now serve over 16,000 professional repairers and 2.9 billion dollars in part searches per month.
