The Auto Pride division of The Automotive Distribution Network unveiled several marketing and product programs as well as information technology solutions to more than 30 warehouse distributors attending its membership meeting.

“As the Auto Pride membership continues to expand under the Network umbrella, the brand remains committed to developing marketing, product and IT programs that will provide real-world solutions to distributors and service dealers at the street level,” says Mike Lambert, president of the Network.

Network staff discussed the organization’s 2015 national convention in New Orleans, the Auto Service Experts marketing program for service dealers, the group’s lines of tools and equipment and expanded offerings from Network Products, its co-op warehouse.

The Network Information Services team also provided an overview of the latest developments in the group’s e-commerce solutions, including WebShop, Net-Intel, PartShare, Electronic Order Processing, and Internet Parts Ordering.

More than 30 of the Network’s manufacturer partners hosted a vendor expo, showcasing their latest products and services as well discussing real-world issues.

During the gathering, the Auto Pride membership named Federal-Mogul Corp. and Best Brakes Inc. its 2013 vendors of the year.

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.
