The Network Launches New WebShop Mobile App

Developed by the Network Information Services team, the new app enables users to perform part-number stock checks, look up parts in the catalog, place parts orders and scan the Vehicle Information Number (VIN) in the parking lot with their smartphone or a VIN photo in the phone's camera roll to save the vehicle to their desktop.

GERMANTOWN, Tenn. — After introducing its license plate lookup tool as part of its e-commerce solution, the Automotive Distribution Network has released the WebShop app for mobile devices, according to Mike Lambert, Network president.

“Designed for busy automotive professionals on the move, the Network’s WebShop app is optimized for an array of mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets,” Lambert said. “This ensures the Network’s Parts Plus, Auto Pride and IAPA members and their customers have the latest catalog and parts-ordering technology right at their fingertips.”

Developed by the Network Information Services team, the new app enables users to perform part-number stock checks, look up parts in the catalog, place parts orders, and scan the Vehicle Information Number (VIN) in the parking lot with their smartphone or a VIN photo in the phone’s camera roll to save the vehicle to their desktop. The app’s Home Tab, Saved Orders, Order History and Tools Tab can be displayed on the desktop.

“With this new app and recently released license plate lookup, we are leveraging available data and technology to reduce the time it takes to find the right parts for our service dealers and distributors,” said Tom Frey, the Network’s vice president of IT. “Ultimately, this will facilitate the repair process and help keep motorists running.”

Operating under the brands of Parts Plus, Parts Plus Mexico, IAPA and Auto Pride, the Automotive Distribution Network is one of the largest, most diverse program groups in the industry.
