Tuesday, Pluss Corporation announced it has rolled out an advanced parts ordering system for busy repair shops. This new module allows technicians and service managers to communicate more efficiently and effectively with outside parts vendors, the company says.
“This new module was developed to address the ongoing problem many shops have in getting the right part for vehicles under repair in their shop, in a simple way,” says Kenny Nau, director of sales at Pluss Corporation. “This module not only simplifies the process of ordering parts, it helps eliminate errors in tracking parts and invoicing the correct price within the work order. The technician enters a simple description of the part needed and the software looks up all of the vehicle information and sends it in an email to the parts vendor.
“The parts vendor opens a web link from the email and enters all of the pertinent information to ensure the correct part number is ordered along with pricing and delivery information. Once the web link is closed the part is reviewed and ordered through PTM-Vision’s purchasing system. It then posts all of the delivery and pricing information into PTM-Vision.”
“I run a busy shop,” says Dalen Iverson, owner at Dalen’s Diesel. “The Tech to Vendor module allows my technicians to enter a simple description of what they need and the software pulls down all the vehicle information and emails it to my vendor so they can look up the part and help me get the part into my shop in a timely manner. The process is simple for my technicians and greatly improves the communications with my vendors.”
