Network releases mobile app

Posted on March 5, 2014

The Automotive Distribution Network (Network) has released a mobile app for WebShop, its electronic parts catalog.

“Designed for busy automotive professionals on the move, the Network’s WebShop app is optimized for an array of mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets,” says Mike Lambert, Network president.

“This ensures the Network’s Parts Plus, Auto Pride and IAPA members and their customers have the latest catalog and parts-ordering technology right at their fingertips.”

The app enables users to perform part-number stock checks, look up parts in the catalog, place parts orders, and scan the Vehicle Information Number (VIN) in the parking lot with their smartphone or a VIN photo in the phone’s camera roll to save the vehicle to their desktop.

“With this new app and recently released license plate lookup, we are leveraging available data and technology to reduce the time it takes to find the right parts for our service dealers and distributors,” says Tom Frey, the Network’s vice president of information technology.

Operating under the brands of Parts Plus, Parts Plus Mexico, IAPA and Auto Pride, the Automotive Distribution Network is one of the largest, most diverse program groups in the industry.
