Monday, Oct 27, 2014

DST, the US business unit of Solera Holdings Inc. and a leader in parts eCommerce ordering technology, today announced the release of TurboParts Select, an enhancement to its award-winning eCommerce tool TurboParts. TurboParts Select combines the powerful features and benefits of any parts eCommerce engine to enable sellers to issue one simple login to their customers, such as repair technicians, for the purchase of B2B parts. By combining all tools and digital assets into one login, TurboParts Select helps parts sellers to efficiently maintain their eCommerce orders and streamlines the maintenance of their customer base.

“This is the first tool on the market that encourages all eCommerce providers to work in a collaborative manner,” said Stan Gowisnock, President of DST. “Any program that a supplier is involved with can be combined into Select, which helps eliminate the confusion that is rampant today among parts buyers due to the large amount of different eCommerce tools available in the market.”

With TurboParts Select, parts buyers will no longer have to worry about which B2B eCommerce tool they should click on in order to participate in buying promotions or to get the right applications for the vehicle they need to repair. Turbo Select-enabled eCommerce applications are all combined under the TurboParts umbrella, making it a single choice when it comes to purchasing parts. Other new features and benefits that come with TurborParts Select include:

  • • Advanced Sorting – The ability to sort catalog results by part types in addition to the current sorting by manufacturer lines, cutting searching time;
  • • Display Enhancements – The catalog display now shows all parts results in a single screen versus the industry alternatives of versus the industry alternatives of only four or five part number results showing at a time;
  • • Customizable Sourcing – Advanced sourcing capabilities can optionally be enabled to automatically display the buying locations that have quantity available if the primary location has less than the requested amount on hand; and
  • • VIN Code Scanner – Repair technicians can scan vehicles’ VIN codes with the optional TurboParts VIN scanning app for Android or Apple mobile devices, increasing speed, accuracy and customer satisfaction.
