PartsTrader Releases Efficiency Study

Study intended to act as early benchmark in PartsTrader's ongoing communication with repairers.

PartsTrader LLC, a Web-based parts sourcing, quoting and ordering platform supporting the automobile collision repair industry, announced the release of an efficiency study that explores the role of its online parts ordering system.

This initial report tracks one shop’s efficiency when utilizing PartsTrader versions 1.4 and 1.5. PartsTrader says that while this report is by no means comprehensive, it is intended to act as an early benchmark in their ongoing communication efforts with repairers and other industry stakeholders. As PartsTrader continues to track efficiency data, it says it will look to disclose further information on the effects of its program.

“Our commitment to transparency, continuous process improvement and advancing our relationships with repairers is at the heart of this study and our organization as a whole,” said Rob Cooper, PartsTrader CEO. “We look forward to expanding on this baseline of information disclosure as we continue to track and improve our product in the collision repair marketplace.”

PartsTrader says that its system has been "built to meet the specific needs of the collision replacement parts market, has been tested and guided by input from repairers and suppliers, and is being refined continuously to ensure it runs smoothly." PartsTrader also says the system is designed for integration with estimatics software using CIECA industry standards for integration. Finally, PartsTrader says it is working with all industry stakeholders to use the more secure BMS standard.
