KYB Americas Corp., a supplier of shocks and struts, has partnered with ShowMeTheParts, a division of Vertical Development Inc., to add an all-new license plate lookup feature to its mobile app. The KYB app, available for both iPhone and Android devices, makes it easy for aftermarket professionals to find the correct shocks and struts among more than 3,300 items in the KYB catalog. With this added feature, the KYB app can now zero in on the proper parts using a vehicle’s license plate number.
KYB’s mobile app integrates the regular updates from ShowMeTheParts, along with the accuracy of license plate lookups to ensure that shops feel confident about installing the correct shocks and struts for a job.
“KYB is delighted to share the new license plate lookup functionality through our mobile app and online catalog, both powered by Vertical Development’s ShowMeTheParts. We upgraded our KYB cataloging with this new license plate lookup feature to help the service provider reduce the time it takes to look up parts and avoid mistakes,” said Tim Oldiges, product manager for KYB Americas Corp.
KYB turned to ShowMeTheParts because it is the most up-to-date public parts catalog available – with information on more than 300 suppliers and manufacturers of aftermarket replacement parts. With fast turnaround time, users can be assured the information is the most current available and published in the way the supplier intends.
“Each year, KYB publishes an extensive catalog with meticulous details on its product lines. With the ShowMeTheParts integration, KYB adds entries as soon as products are released, and users always have the most recent information when searching for shocks and struts using the KYB mobile app,” said Jay Wright, president of Vertical Development. “For corporate sales departments, we’ve improved our already robust mobile solution so that field sales teams are able to show their products in a most-efficient manner.”
