Headquarters, a third-generation family-owned automotive
parts wholesaler and retailer based in St. Cloud, Minn., has upgraded to the Epicor®
Vision® business management solution to meet its enterprise
resource planning (ERP) business growth and technology needs. Epicor Vision
software is a comprehensive distribution management solution utilized by several
leading multi-location distributors of motor vehicle components.
A shareholder of the
Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance, Automotive Parts Headquarters is using the
Epicor Vision solution to fully integrate multiple technology platforms and
services within its headquarters location. According to Dennis Gregory, chief
operating officer of Automotive Parts Headquarters, the new software should
enable enhanced visibility and control across each operational area for
increased efficiency and a superior customer experience.
system we were operating was an excellent system, but was written around 1980.
A lot of the new technology we have now was not envisioned at that point,”
Gregory said. “With the Epicor Vision solution, we knew we could integrate our
accounting system, have a tighter integration with our customer relationship
management system, our databases and more.”
a solution that would allow for increased integration was a priority for the
company, as it would allow employees to be more productive, according to
Gregory. He cited the Vision software’s tight integration with Epicor Compass
analytics, which offers more team members broader access to critical business
and his team learned the value and competitive power the Vision software
provides, and they did an outstanding job of preparing for and completing the
implementation,” said Scott Thompson, vice president, automotive, analytics and
content, Epicor Americas. “It is exciting to watch a leading channel partner
position itself for enhanced competitive advantage and long-term growth.”
credited his IT and core teams with making the integration successful. The teams
worked for two years in analyzing and determining pain points associated with
their existing solution and speaking with users of the Vision software and
those using competing solutions. He pointed to the teams’ enthusiasm to learn
the capabilities of Vision software as a leading reason for the comparatively
fast, trouble-free implementation.
Vision software is a powerful enterprise solution that includes world-class
customer relationship management (CRM) tools, a centralized database, highly
advanced price management and inventory capabilities, comprehensive “central
services” functionality, integrated accounting and other features that help
drive sales, operational efficiency and customer satisfaction. The solution
also includes a comprehensive “three-way match” feature that helps users
quickly identify and reconcile discrepancies between purchase orders, advance
shipping notices, receivers and vendor invoices.
