Epicor Software Corporation unveiled version 6 of Epicor® Vista® for the Automotive Aftermarket. Its Web-based market and category intelligence services solution enables automotive aftermarket distributors to create location-specific inventory models based on actual parts demand by vehicle, brand and other criteria. The solution also offers an array of new data visualization applets designed for use on distributor sales representatives’ mobile devices.
“Vista 6 delivers advanced, aftermarket-specific analytics that can dramatically enhance inventory efficiency and sales performance at the DC, store and installer levels,” said Steve Bieszczat, senior vice president, automotive and marketing, retail distribution solutions for Epicor. “This solution helps empower the entire distribution channel to step beyond traditional category management by providing unprecedented customer insight, including the individual vehicle and parts installer as well as the anticipated repair demand by part type and brand. It also offers distributor sales professionals the tools they need to better maintain and grow their installer relationships.”
The Epicor solution includes new data visualization technology in the form of easy-to-use applets that present key information in clear, crisp, dynamic presentations designed for mobile devices. As one example, the solution’s new “Installer Insight” applet summarizes account-specific vehicle repair and parts consumption patterns for the shop owner, manager, or service writer as a means to increase customer loyalty and sales volume.
