Wholesale distribution in the automotive aftermarket can be challenging enough without negotiating the complexities of re-manufacturing (ReMan), electronic parts cataloging and post-sale service management. The ability to account for profits in the ReMan business alone can chip away at already thin margins, if not managed efficiently. And, as OEMs continue to evolve their product lines and update their parts catalogs, today’s information can fall quickly out of date without a real-time, online parts catalog available across the supply chain. To make up ground, innovative parts distributors are building service revenue streams into their business models. This, however, adds new difficulty in tracking the service history of a product throughout the maintenance lifecycle.
To remain competitive and continue to thrive in a rapidly evolving industry, many automotive aftermarket distributors are turning to IBS for solutions.
