BUENA PARK, Calif. – Autologue Computer Systems, a California-based company, formally announces the acquisition of Partner Data Systems of Ontario, Canada, which includes Partner Data’s “The PARTner” jobber management system and “ViSiCAT” electronic cataloging products.

William Ballestrini, former president of Partner Data Systems, will work with Autologue Inc. at its headquarters in Buena Park, Calif. Autologue specializes in automotive inventory control systems including Windows-based products, online ordering and e-commerce solutions, as well as customer relationship management (CRM) tools that help to drive sales upward and improve operational efficiency. All of Autologue’s e-commerce products will be introduced to the “PARTner” customers, including;

* Autologue’s newest mobile and desktop applications for business intelligence dashboards and CRM salesman tools, designed for Android and Apple smartphones and tablet PCs.

Today’s automotive aftermarket resellers have many demands that are changing on a daily basis. Autologue says the tools it provides can help them save time, improve service and increase sales. Constant, responsible development by Autologue guarantees the jobber/distributor’s return on investment, and acquiring new and innovative products helps maintain that level of responsibility to their customers, according to Autologue.

Jim Franco, CEO of Autologue, said, “One of the areas in the automotive aftermarket that is growing the most is e-commerce. We are committed to helping our customers get through the technical aspects of starting a mobile e-commerce business by offering them products that are user-friendly for their customers and easy to set up and maintain. The satisfaction of our customers, as well as the satisfaction of their customers is priority No. 1 at Autologue, and our entire staff is committed to achieving that goal.”

Autlogue estimates that e-commerce business-to-business sales are growing at an annual rate of better than 25 percent, validating the fact that more and more installers are using online sourcing and ordering.
