Weekly Epicor eCatalog Web Updates Now Broadly Available to Automotive Aftermarket Wholesalers


AUSTIN, Texas, September 29, 2015

Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, has expanded the availability of automated weekly eCatalog data updates to the Epicor PartExpert electronic catalog. The company's PartExpert Dynamic Updates service, which enables automotive replacement parts wholesalers and other businesses to access the latest eCatalog information, is now available to catalog customers who utilize a wide range of business management solutions.

Available at no additional charge, PartExpert Dynamic Updates enables many Epicor eCatalog users to schedule automated weekly data updates during periods when their businesses are closed. These updates include manufacturer parts files featuring “net adds” and “net changes” product data, representing new, changed or deleted part numbers added since the users' last dynamic update. The weekly availability of new part numbers can help parts resellers and repair shops compete more effectively with OE dealerships for sales and service opportunities on late-model vehicles.

“PartExpert Dynamic Updates can help eCatalog users and their commercial accounts close more sales through access to information concerning manufacturers' latest product introductions,” said Scott Thompson, vice president, automotive, analytics and content, Epicor Americas. “This new capability, and our fast turnaround of net adds data, can reduce the chances of an aftermarket business having to refer their customer to a dealership parts department. We want our eCatalog users to be able to say 'Yes' to every customer who is looking for parts and related products for a late-model application.”

PartExpert Dynamic Updates is now available to users who have either an Epicor LaserCat 3 or PartExpert data server and/or use the LaserCat 3 eCatalog in conjunction with an Epicor Eagle, J-CON, Ultimate, Prism or Vision business management solution. Other system requirements apply.

To learn more and to sign up for automated weekly Epicor eCatalog updates via the PartExpert Dynamic Updates service, please contact your Epicor representative, call Epicor toll-free at 888.463.4700 or email automotive.marketing@epicor.com.
