Meritor, Inc. unveiled MeritorpartsOnline.com: the company's most advanced, user-friendly electronic catalog and parts ordering system during the Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week.
Designed to assist fleet parts managers, OEM dealers, warehouse distributors and truck operators, the new system is available immediately, free-of-charge, in the United States, Canada and South America, with other regions of the world to be added in the coming months.
MeritorpartsOnline.com replaces the company's previous e-commerce system, XpresswayPlus.com, which was introduced in 1998. Current XpresswayPlus users may continue using their existing log-in credentials and any established reporting will transition with the user's account.
"Our OEM dealers and distributor customers move fast to serve truck operators of all sizes, and they need a leading supplier like Meritor to provide a responsive, accurate, all-inclusive e-commerce system," said Martin Hetherington, manager, Marketing and Brand, Aftermarket, Meritor.
Based on extensive customer feedback and research, the new system features:
- Improved and intuitive navigation and easy-to-read pages that provide a simple transition from parts searches to order entry.
- New product information, promotions, improved parts comparisons, batch cross-reference upload, and 3D 360 degree rotating and zoom product photography.
- Upload template for both stock and emergency orders, quick order feature.
- Re-order purchase orders from historical data.
In the fall of 2013, a second phase of the system will be introduced with additional features, including recommended up-selling and cross-selling, and an ad-maker kit for dealers and distributors.
