OEConnection Launches Updated CollisionLink Shop Application

New app provides access to OEM-quality part illustrations through catalog integration; also includes an improved Web-based user interface.

OEConnection LLC has launched a new version of the CollisionLink Shop application. The new CollisionLink Shop provides access to OEM-quality part illustrations through catalog integration, ensuring all the correct parts needed for repair are ordered. Shops will also have a new and improved workflow and Web-based user interface, which helps streamline the parts ordering process and keep shops organized.
“We spent a great deal of time with collision shops and dealers learning about and understanding the process of buying and selling parts, and that has helped us identify new value-added features that are a part of our next-generation CollisionLink Shop application,” said Bill Lopez, director of collision and OEM program management for OEConnection. “Our primary focus is to make sure we continue to provide a parts procurement solution that is easy to use while meeting the needs of our users, both body shops and automotive franchise dealers. Features we’ve included in new CollisionLink Shop focus on making body shops more productive and efficient when it comes to ordering parts.”
In addition, the new CollisionLink Shop will feature the ability to locate, source and purchase recycled parts by providing an integrated workflow with Car-Part Pro.  

“Car-Part is seen as a market leader in recycled parts locating and sourcing,” said Lopez. “We feel by enhancing CollisionLink to include recycled parts as part of our workflow and feature set, we are delivering a solution that builds upon the value it already delivers to current body shop users of CollisionLink.”
The CollisionLink Shop all-makes, all-models parts ordering and fulfillment solution is currently used by thousands of collision shops across North America on a daily basis to source, price and purchase OE collision parts from automotive dealerships. Sixteen automakers in the U.S. and Canada utilize CollisionLink to administer their parts marketing programs, enabling dealers to more effectively compete with non-OEM parts suppliers for the sale of OE parts. Through CollisionLink, collision repair facilities are able to more effectively manage repair costs while improving repair quality, cycle time and customer satisfaction.
CollisionLink Shop is offered to collision repair facilities at no cost. OEConnection will begin upgrading current shops to the new version of CollisionLink Shop this fall. Collision shops can sign up to receive more information and get access to the new CollisionLink Shop earlier in the rollout at http://marketing.oeconnection.com/clshopcomingsoon.
