Parts Procurement, Certification Discussions Added to ASRW Schedule

Aug. 12, 2013

Aug. 12, 2013—Automotive Service & Repair Week (ASRW) has announced the addition of two 90-minute panel discussions to its 2013 event schedule addressing electronic parts procurement and certification programs.

The first, “Understanding Today’s e-Commerce Parts Solutions,” will take place Oct. 16, at 10:30 a.m.

“With the constantly changing e-commerce parts procurement and search engine environment, it is critical that collision repairers understand the impact to their business," said Roger Wright, vice president of operations for Sterling Autobody Centers, and moderator of the e-commerce session.

“Certification Programs – Are They For You?” will take place Oct. 17, at 3 p.m.

“Certification is a term that is grossly overused, and more importantly, under-defined. This session should help attendees learn about the variety of certifications available so they can make the decision as to what works best for their businesses,” said Lou DiLisio of Automotive Industry Consulting and moderator of the certification session.

ASRW will take place Oct. 17–18, with education beginning Oct. 16, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. Register online at
