PartsTrader has announced today that it has integrated Hollander Interchange codes within the PartsTrader application to assist suppliers when they are quoting recycled parts.
With this latest enhancement to the PartsTrader system, a collision repair estimator will be asked, when appropriate, clarifying vehicle option questions prior to sending out a quote request for their specific part needs. The estimator’s answers to these questions will trigger PartsTrader to display the appropriate Hollander code to the quoting recycler whenever that code is available for the parts or assemblies required.
This new functionality has been previewed in Illinois and New Jersey, and is now available to PartsTrader users nationwide. “The repairers and recyclers who have been using this feature in our preview areas have been pleased with the efficiencies it has delivered to them,” said Dale Sailer, PartsTrader’s Vice President of Business Development. “Our development team has worked diligently on asking the right questions of repairers, and to display the Hollander codes in an easy to use manner for any supplier quoting recycled parts. PartsTrader’s goal is to continually improve our solution so that it reduces the risk of getting the wrong parts and creates efficiencies for both the repairer and the supplier.”
Auto recyclers have relied on Hollander for 80 years as a standard for managing their inventory and creating reliable part matches, ensuring that they sell the recycled parts their customers need. “In meeting with recyclers across the country, we’ve heard the need for integration with Hollander Interchange loud and clear, and it’s exciting to be able to respond to the market’s needs in such a positive way,” added Rob Cooper, PartsTrader’s Chief Executive Officer.
