ALLDATA, AutoZone streamline electronic parts ordering
Feb. 28, 2011 — Shop management software provider ALLDATA on Monday announced enhanced integration of parts ordering with AutoZone, its parent company.
The changes, made to ALLDATA Manage 4.9, are designed to improve ordering accuracy and streamline workflow, saving shops time. The system allows users to look up parts, check availability in real time, zoom in on and print part images, order parts directly from AutoZone, and import parts to a customer repair order. The new system also features enhanced search and mapping capabilities.
"ALLDATA knows that efficient electronic ordering is a vital component to a shop's ability to quickly and accurately provide customer repair estimates and drive improved customer satisfaction,” said Jeff Lagges, president of ALLDATA. “ALLDATA Manage 4.9 maximizes performance of part ordering and estimation capabilities with AutoZone on a state-of-the-art technology platform."
Larry Roesel, senior vice president of AutoZone Commercial, said the management system brings the company’s extensive inventories to a customer’s computer desktop, eliminating the need to use a paper catalog or pick up the phone.
