A-Star Distributing Selects Autopart as Point-of-Sale Solution

“We looked closely at the capabilities of Autopart and felt that it would best fit the needs of our company and help us move our business to the next level,” said Damon Smathers, controller of A-Star Distributing.

A-Star Distributing has selected Autopart from MAM Software to replace its legacy business software, MAM Software announced.

A-Star Distributing, a Spokane, Washington-based distributor of aftermarket body parts, launched in 1985 “with the goal of providing customers with a low-cost quality alternative to expensive OEM replacement parts,” according to the company’s website. With the market evolving, A-Star Distributing had been looking for business software that leverages today’s technology to enable the company to serve its customers better.

“We knew that it was time to invest in new technology,” said Damon Smathers, controller of A-Star Distributing. “We looked closely at the capabilities of Autopart and felt that it would best fit the needs of our company and help us move our business to the next level.”

Available as a traditional on-premise solution or hosted cloud solution, Autopart combines modern .NET technology with a SQL database “for unparalleled functionality and flexibility” in a system designed for the automotive aftermarket, according to MAM Software. The system includes point-of-sale, inventory management, forecasting, purchasing, reporting and accounting.

A-Star also will leverage Autopart to fulfill its online listings with internet marketplaces.

“We are excited that A-Star Distributing has decided to work with us and has selected our Autopart solution,” said Lance Brierley, general manager of MAM Software, North America. “We are looking forward to the partnership and becoming a better company while help them become a better company.”
