Euro Car Parts has opened a trade-only website that will run in addition to the consumer site.
The new property, known as Omnipart, will feature a VIN search as well as the regular registration and make/model searches. The entire ECP catalogue is available including mechanical and collision parts, tools and workshop consumables, with each product identified by a photograph.
Another feature allows technicians to see both local and national stock levels, as well as price checks, in real time so that garages can have an indication of how long it will take for a part to be delivered.
Martin Gray, CEO of Euro Car Parts, commented: “We developed Omnipart as a key driver in our commitment to making life even easier for technicians working in the independent sector. With 24/7 access to ordering, instant updates on parts availability and smart search technology, garages can make sure the parts they need are included in the first order of the day. Ordering online also reduces the cost of outbound calls, keeping phones clear for a garage’s own customers.”
Earlier in the month, Midwest Motor Factors also launched a trade-only site for the provision of crash repair parts.
