Epicor Parts Network B2B eStore adds quoting

Posted on August 26, 2014

Epicor Software Corp., a global provider of business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, announced that it has added several new features, including an enhanced repair shop customer quoting capability, to the Epicor Parts Network B2B eStore.

The B2B eStore (formerly Internet AutoParts) connects 29,000 automotive replacement parts wholesalers with more than 180,000 registered service provider accounts throughout the United States and Canada.

The optional new Enhanced Customer Quote feature enables authorized service providers to quickly generate quotes that include:

  • parts list and pricing;
  • labor (based on Mitchell Flat Rate Labor Guide);
  • vehicle-specific product specifications from Epicor PartExpert eCatalog data;
  • itemized shop supplies with user-defined prices;
  • sales tax;
  • disposal and/or hazardous materials fees;
  • user-defined service disclaimer; and
  • customer name and optional signature line.

“There are thousands of service providers that do not have an integrated shop management system to generate comprehensive and professionally printed customer quotes, yet rely on the Epicor B2B eStore to automate their sourcing of replacement parts and supplies,” said Scott Thompson, vice president, automotive, retail distribution solutions for Epicor.

“This new feature helps support their growth by providing a fast, accurate, customer-friendly quote for virtually any common repair or maintenance service.”
