Solution automates setup, daily management of online sales for automotive parts distributors and jobbers.
AUSTIN, Texas — Epicor Software Corp., a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, today announced that the Epicor ListingExpert solution is now available to help automotive aftermarket professionals establish and manage eCommerce sales on the Amazon.com global marketplace.
Epicor ListingExpert enables parts businesses to quickly and easily list virtually any automotive aftermarket product on the Amazon eCommerce platform. The solution automates the process of assigning the appropriate Amazon Standard Identification Number (ASIN) for a listed product and generates a detailed description, product image and corresponding application information. The ListingExpert solution can be integrated with leading automotive aftermarket business management software, including the Epicor Eagle, Epicor Vision and Epicor Prism solutions. ListingExpert can also be used in conjunction with the industry leading Epicor Parts Network (formerly AConneX) to automatically log online sales, generate pick tickets and shipping labels, and register customer payments.
“We went from no online presence to thousands of dollars in sales in our first month with ListingExpert and we’re already averaging hundreds of orders per month between Amazon and other ListingExpert marketplace accounts,” said Bob Curtis, owner of Rieth Auto Stores, Mesa, Ariz. “When I first started thinking about selling online, I thought it would require a huge investment in time and money, but with ListingExpert it’s fast, easy and very affordable.”
ListingExpert was launched in 2010 as a powerful tool for creating and managing online automotive aftermarket parts listings. Sellers using the ListingExpert solution simply provide Epicor with lists of parts they choose to sell through their Amazon accounts. Epicor automatically populates each listing with the appropriate product information as well as the seller’s desired pricing and shipping decisions. There is no limit to the number of parts that can be listed; Rieth Auto now lists thousands of parts on Amazon.
“The automotive aftermarket is ideally suited to the Amazon online marketplace because auto parts professionals typically carry broad inventories from respected brands and, if they use an Epicor electronic catalog, have access to rich product content that drives online sales,” said Scott Thompson, vice president, automotive, retail distribution solutions for Epicor.
