Epicor Introduces Automotive Graphical eCatalog To Help Users Increase Efficiency, Accuracy and Sales

The new Epicor PartExpert GFX eCatalog interface is now available for Epicor Vision and Epicor Eagle users of Automotive Aftermarket business management solutions.

Epicor Software Corp. has just introduced the Epicor PartExpert GFX eCatalog interface. This new graphical automotive parts catalog interface was created to help distributor and jobber personnel, service writers and other users of any skill level enhance lookup efficiency, strengthen customer satisfaction and increase sales. The new GFX interface is immediately available for users of the Epicor Vision and Epicor Eagle for the Aftermarket business management solutions.

According to Epicor, the Epicor PartExpert GFX eCatalog represents one of the most significant advancements in e-catalog technology of the past 30 years.

“Parts providers have told us they are finding it difficult to attract seasoned counter professionals. The PartExpert GFX interface addresses this challenge by helping even the most inexperienced employees to quickly and easily find the right parts for every customer,” said Scott Thompson, senior vice president, automotive and business services, Epicor.

The interface enhances traditional, menu-driven lookup prompts with new, detailed system visualizations featuring embedded part intelligence. Rather than requiring keyed prompts to drill down to a specific part, the GFX interface allows users to more easily identify available aftermarket and original equipment (OE) parts represented within corresponding vehicle system diagrams. By clicking on the brake system visualization for a late-model import application, for example, the user will see an exploded view of all system components – rotors, calipers, brake pads, hardware, etc. – along with available OE and aftermarket part numbers. Clicking on a part within the exploded view automatically performs a catalog lookup on that component.

Epicor says the intuitive design helps users quickly visualize part location and design and identify related parts that might be needed to complete a repair. Product images, installation instructions, warranty details and other value-added content also is available with a single click.

“The GFX interface has definitely made our parts lookup process faster and more accurate, which helps ensure a higher level of customer service,” said Michael Crews, vice president of information technology, Tri-States Automotive Warehouse Inc. “The parts breakout of any system you’re looking at is right there in front of you, and you can easily click on whatever replacement part you need, instead of having to guess.”

“The vehicle parts and service industry has reached an inflection point in the demand for comprehensive product intelligence,” said Thompson. “The GFX interface helps our customers get fit to grow their businesses faster by providing a superior customer experience in every transaction. As with all of our aftermarket solutions, the new graphical interface is exceptionally easy to use yet offers a much deeper view of all the parts and related intelligence needed for each repair.”
