PartsTrader Recognizes Highest Rated Companies of 2014

PartsTrader Recognizes Highest-Rated Repairers and Suppliers of 2014

Top-performing body shops, OEM suppliers and alternative parts suppliers gleaned from more than 400,000 user surveys.

PartsTrader has announced the highest-rated repairers and suppliers utilizing the PartsTrader platform for 2014. These ratings were determined by users completing surveys regarding the companies they did business with throughout the year.

PartsTrader introduced its proprietary feedback and ratings system in April 2013. A supplier is measured on how well it meets the needs of its repair shop customers on procurement criteria such as part availability, parts quality, delivery time, quote accuracy, customer service and speed of confirmation. Similarly, a repairer is measured on a series of metrics important to suppliers such as accuracy in parts description, communications practices, meeting payment terms and other related measures.

Feedback forms capture information within the PartsTrader application by users and are related to actual orders within the system. In 2014, more than 2.4 million orders were placed on the PartsTrader platform, and users completed 407,973 feedback forms. Based on the submitted feedback, 3,214 companies received enough feedback to carry a rating for all 12 months of 2014, thus becoming eligible for this recognition.
