Naperville, Illinois — September 3, 2017 — Vertical Development has released a critical update to its ShowMeTheParts app, giving mobile users faster access to what the company says is the largest public parts database on the market. The newly updated ShowMeTheParts app allows users to find parts and check photos, specifications and other information while working.
ShowMeTheParts’ database covers 1.7 million parts from over 300 aftermarket parts manufacturers. This includes over 4.5 million applications including passenger cars, motorcycles and both heavy duty and agricultural equipment. Along with interchange information and specifications, users can view product information sheets, photos and even 360-degree views of parts. According to Vertical Development, this information is constantly updated, ensuring the most accurate information available.
“Users will see faster look-up speeds and smoother navigation to the freshest data in the aftermarket,” says Jay Wright, President of Vertical Development.
The app provides access to all the information in the ShowMeTheParts catalogue through a user interface tailored to work with small touch screens. Vertical Development’s update brings improvements in both the design of the app and the servers supplying it with data. Vertical Development also creates branded mobile apps and HTML5 versions for other companies. Over three dozen suppliers have chosen ShowMeTheParts as the base for their own apps, including Valvoline, Champ Quality Filters, KYB Shocks and MPA’s Street Smart eCatalog.
The app allows users to check information when they are at their car, making direct comparisons between photos and specifications with the parts they need to replace. The app can even search local businesses to find a supplier for the part they need.
To get the full benefit of these updates, current users will need to uninstall the app and download the new version. The iOS version is available from the App Store, while Android users can get it from the Google Play Store. For users whose phones don’t have a supported OS, there’s an HTML5 version of the app that can be accessed using any modern browser at showmetheparts.com.
