PartsTrader Releases Efficiency Study

By PartsTrader on 10 Oct 2012

PartsTrader LLC, a Web-based parts sourcing, quoting, and ordering platform supporting the automobile collision repair industry, today announced the release of an efficiency study which explores the role of its online parts ordering system.

In the spirit of transparency, PartsTrader continues to listen to industry requests for data by releasing an initial report tracking one shop’s efficiency when utilizing PartsTrader versions1.4 and 1.5.  This report, while by no means comprehensive, is intended to act as an early benchmark in PartsTrader’s ongoing communication efforts with repairers and other industry stakeholders.  As PartsTrader continues to track efficiency data, it will look to disclose further information on the effects of PartsTrader.

“Our commitment to transparency, continuous process improvement and advancing our relationships with repairers is at the heart of this study and our organization as a whole,” said Rob Cooper, PartsTrader Chief Executive Officer.  “We look forward to expanding on this baseline of information disclosure as we continue to track and improve our product in the collision repair marketplace.”

The PartsTrader system has been built to meet the specific needs of the collision replacement parts market, has been tested and guided by input from repairers and suppliers, and is being refined continuously to ensure it runs smoothly.  It is designed for integration with estimatics software using CIECA industry standards for integration.  PartsTrader is working with all industry stakeholders to use the more secure BMS standard to the maximum extent possible.
