Network adds license plate search to WebShop

Posted on February 27, 2014

The Automotive Distribution Network says that as part of the evolving technology of its Network WebShop ecommerce solution, it has introduced a new feature that allows users to search for a vehicle by license-plate number and the state where it’s registered.

“The Network Information Services team is constantly striving to provide greater IT features for Parts Plus, Auto Pride and IAPA members and their customers by increasing efficiency when searching for and ordering parts through our electronic catalog system,” says Mike Lambert, president of the Network.

“This latest feature will help the Network’s service-dealer customers better assist motorists in getting back on the road and back to their lives,” says Tom Frey, the Network’s vice president of IT.

“With this new tool, Network WebShop leverages the vehicle identification number related to the license plate to find the vehicle’s correct year, make, model and engine. The VIN has traditionally been the quickest and best way to ensure an accurate vehicle lookup in the catalog.

Frey says license-plate lookup not only reduces mouse clicks for the Network’s service-dealer customers, but it also decreases lookup errors that occur when consumers provide the incorrect year or engine for their vehicle. “This tool will help service dealers reduce mistakes and eliminate multiple deliveries.”

The Automotive Distribution Network operates under the brands of Parts Plus, Parts Plus Mexico, IAPA and Auto Pride. For more information visit www.networkhq.org.
