Calif. Technicians accessing jobber or WD inventories through
Autologue Computer System’s ePartConnection now have the ability to
create lists of parts for specific vehicles with the addition of “Fleet
A technician that services a fleet for his customer
can now build a list of parts by vehicle or piece of industrial
equipment for commonly ordered parts to have on hand when a vehicle
comes in for service. In the past, a garage would get hand-written
lists from each manufacturer detailing parts used on a specific
vehicle, with each manufacturer supplying his own list. Technicians
working on multiple fleets would commonly have hundreds of these lists
to search. The new Fleet Survey functionality is unique to each
technician logging in to ePartConnection and is extremely easy to
create, according to Autologue. Fleet Survey is even adaptable to the
DIY mechanic, listing the vehicles he commonly works on, such as family
or personal vehicles.
Fleet Survey simplifies for technicians
the process of creating the parts lists and also eliminates repetitive
phone calls to the jobber or WD for the same parts, time after time.
Fleet Survey also takes the creation of these lists out of the Jobber’s
hands and lets the end-user be responsible for which parts it contains.
ePart allows the technician to simply create a list by vehicle for
everything he might need, then save it under a heading for that
particular vehicle. He can also add items from the Non-Cataloged Parts
and Accessories section such as oil, antifreeze and any other items
used regularly, but not available in make, model and year lookup.
Recently, Art Kramer, owner of Skeeter’s Automotive in Cypress, Calif.,
commented, “I have a core group of fleet customers whose vehicles I
service regularly, and with ePart’s Fleet Survey I cut my parts
ordering process by about 90 percent. I simply select the vehicle I’m
working on, and order the parts I need from a pre-configured list for
the particular service I’m performing, rather than using the paper
notebook compiled for me by manufacturers …ePart is so easy to use and
so fast, I order what I need in seconds from the pre-configured list in
Fleet Survey and go back to work on the vehicle. I used to spend a lot
of time looking up the same parts for the same vehicles, but now it’s
already done for me, as well as giving me correct pricing and current
quantity on hand. Thanks Autologue, and keep up the good work!”
Fleet Survey is currently available in ePartConnection.
