Aurora Parts and Accessories and Pluss Corporation Announce Integration Suite to Streamline Purchasing Activity for Aurora Dealers
LEBANON, Indiana, and COLUMBIA FALLS, Montana (April 11, 2018) – Aurora Parts and Accessories and Pluss Corporation are pleased to announce the release of a suite of new products, which streamline purchasing activity on the MyAuroraPlus and PartsXpressNET platforms.
The new time-saving technology enables the user to automate purchasing, send electronic purchase orders and delivery confirmations, retrieve current FleetPerform pricing directly from the PTM Vision point of sale system, access Aurora’s Graphical Bill of Materials (GBOM) application from PTM Vision, apply parts directly to work orders, and check for Aurora parts availability in real time.
Designed to ease the complexity of the parts purchasing process, the new product suite will help to ensure simplicity of parts acquisitions and accuracy of pricing for a more efficient workflow. For companies with multiple concurrent customer service needs and tight repair schedules, this automated process significantly cuts down on time spent searching for, and ordering, necessary parts.
“We have been testing the integration between PTM Vision and MyAuroraPlus. The first integration has saved us about 30 man hours. With the newer integrations, we expect to double these savings, allowing us to become more productive and better serve our customers,” said Bill Totty, Vice President of Parts and Service, Trailer Sales & Service, Inc.
The new product line is the result of a growing partnership which combines the best of Aurora Parts and Accessories’ premier transportation products with Pluss Corporation’s industry-leading inventory management technology. This union of quality parts and advanced technology allows an unprecedented flow of product catalog information and parts search capability for the user, ensuring that customer service and ordering can be achieved more efficiently than ever before.
According to Greg Iverson, CEO of Pluss Corporation, “One of the most time-consuming problems in trailer repair is finding, pricing and obtaining the correct parts (quickly) for doing the job. This is particularly true with contracted fleet customers, like those associated with Aurora’s FleetPerform. The new integrations from Pluss Corporation quickly selects the correct parts, finds the correct contracted pricing, streamlines estimates and instantly orders from the best location.”
Dave Clarke, CEO of Aurora Parts & Accessories, agrees, “The integration with PTM Vision eliminates duplication of processes and provides a seamless flow of information between Aurora’s technology tools and the dealer’s operating system. In today’s competitive market, dealers quickly see the benefits of the program with increased productivity, invoice accuracy and a marked time savings in their daily operations.”
The integration suite, developed by Pluss Corporation in partnership with Aurora Parts and Accessories, is the latest addition to the popular integration pack product line offered by Pluss Corporation. The full software pack with customized integration options is now available for purchase directly from Pluss Corporation.
