Autologue will be sharing four new eCommerce products with AAPEX attendees.
1. Win the Day Dashboard
Imagine, every morning the owner/manager/CEO can view yesterday’s operations at a glance.
By utilizing its business intelligence module, known as AutoCube, Autologue has developed an interactive, cloud-based reporting tool that presents a snapshot view of the user’s company as of the close of business the previous day. This tool will include store sales and profit, sales-by-product group, counter staff sales by employee, sales by customer and sales by outside salesperson, including historical comparisons for each. Store profit will factor overhead to show an accurate net profit for the previous day.
2. eCounterSales with Incentive
This will empower counter personnel to be “super salespeople” by providing the opportunity to view their sales performance using user definable goals including sales, profit, new returns, number of line items and average line items per invoice. Most importantly they can see, on a daily basis, their award/incentive dollars that they will receive at the end of the month. With easy-to-read graphs, they can visualize the benefit to them by increasing things like average line items (upselling), and see the actual effect it has on their award. New returns will emphasize the counterperson’s ability to sell the right part the first time by showing a lower percentage of returns in this graph. The bottom line is this: it will guarantee a substantial increase in sales and profit using incentives for the counter staff, said the company.
3. ePartConnection for Retail, Online Sales
Retail customers can now buy parts online without having an established account, either from their PC directly from the website or using the new ePartMobile application (available for Android or IOS). They can look up parts using an advanced year, make and model catalog, or they can choose parts from a catalog you create, to sell items not usually found in an application catalog, such as accessories, lubricants, tools, chemicals, etc. using an intelligent search engine, making items easy to find. Many jobbers/distributors are using this model to offer an option to “Buy Online and pickup at the store,” or to even have the parts delivered using their own delivery vehicles, to local customers.
