Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance Pulls Off A ‘Four-Peat’ Win Of Polk Inventory Efficiency Award

In the world of sports, the word "dynasty" has come to equate the domination of a sports league over a significant period of time, especially winning multiple championships on a consecutive basis. The Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance says it is working toward creating its own "dynasty" after winning the Polk Inventory Efficiency Award in the distribution category five out of the nine times it has been awarded.

SAN ANTONIO – In the world of sports, the word “dynasty” has come to equate the domination of a sports league over a significant period of time, especially winning multiple championships on a consecutive basis.
 
The Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance says it is working toward creating its own "dynasty" after winning the Polk Inventory Efficiency Award in the distribution category five out of the nine times it has been awarded. Moreover, with this year’s award being presented to member Auto-Wares, the Alliance has become a “four-peat” winner, earning the award for a fourth consecutive year.
 
“I know it is not an accident or even a lucky streak that the Alliance has reached this lofty milestone,” said John R. Washbish, president & CEO of the Alliance. “It is the result of years of investment in building an IT team at Alliance headquarters that is dedicated to a close working relationship with shareholders’ purchasing, logistics and inventory management personnel. Everyone is focused on the creative application of technology and building a winning chemistry that enables the group and its members to excel.”
 
“The key is collaboration between Alliance headquarters and Alliance shareholders coupled with our ongoing commitment to building solutions that make doing business with the Alliance easier,” said Dale Hopkins, vice president and CIO of the Alliance. “When you focus on what customers want, and make it easy for them to engage with you; they do. It’s really that simple.”
 
The Alliance’s current winning streak began with Auto Parts Headquarters receiving the Polk award in 2011. The Alliance Headquarters followed with a win in 2012. In 2013, Alliance member Performance Warehouse got the nod, followed by Auto-Wares this year.
