PartsTrader Integrates Platform with Axalta’s ProfitNet
Dec. 9, 2015—PartsTrader announced on Wednesday an integration between its electronic parts-purchasing platform and Axalta Coatings Systems’ ProfitNet Management System.
The new ProfitNet Collision Shop Management System (CSMS) interface is a two-way electronic interface between the ProfitNet Management System and PartsTrader, which helps eliminate redundant tasks between the two systems. Information needed for parts procurement and order status can now be transferred between parts vendors and collision shops using the system.
"By partnering with Axalta, PartsTrader continues in its commitment to streamlining the parts procurement process with this integration between two industry leading platforms,” said Dale Sailer, PartsTrader’s vice president of Business Development. “Collision repairers who use both PartsTrader and the ProfitNet CSMS are positioned to achieve additional savings. The improved margins that PartsTrader can help collision repair shops achieve, combined with the reduced administration costs by using the ProfitNet CSMS, are designed to result in bottom line profits for our mutual customers.”
“Currently, PartsTrader software is widely used by Axalta customers via their estimating platforms,” said Tom McGarry, Axalta’s North American information technology services manager. “Now they can easily use much of the PartsTrader functionality from within the ProfitNet CSMS, thereby saving time and eliminating potential errors from double entries. Axalta is dedicated to enhancing the ProfitNet CSMS with the latest technology to help lower shops’ administrative costs by providing a management solution that is affordable, easy to use and communicates with all industry software partners including parts procurement software, Customer Satisfaction Index services, dealership management software, paint software, auto rental services and accounting software.”
