Parts eCommerce Integration

OEM eCommerce sites aren’t optimized to capture parts business from Independent Repair Facilities (IRFs). In many cases, OEMs lack a comprehensive Parts eCommerce strategy. As a result, money is being left on the table that aftermarket parts suppliers are happy to pickup.

The aftermarket parts suppliers have provided IRFs with an efficient way to look up, order, and deliver parts in a timely fashion through integrations with Shop Management Systems (SMS).

A seamless integration that enables competitive parts sourcing is a contributing factor as to why aftermarket suppliers have been so successful in the independent repair space and why OEMs have traditionally lost parts sales revenue to the aftermarket.

The Challenge

You've been tasked with growing sales of your OEM parts business. To compete with after market suppliers for IRF business you will need a way to share your parts catalog and inventory with the SMS while streamlining fulfillment of eCommerce orders by Dealers via DMS (Dealer Management System).

The Solution

Motive Retail has developed a use-case driven integration solution to support the OEM parts ecommerce business process that can support both dealers and IRFs.
