What does Autopart offer?
Product and price management
Autopart Tyres enables you to manage complex pricing models and rules so that you can present customers with an accurate price at the point of sale. The system allows you to set flexible and complex pricing rules based on criteria such as customer type and product group, as well as contract pricing, rebated costs and mixed-rate quantity breaks. Prices and discounts are calculated automatically, simplifying transactions for customer-facing staff and improving the customer experience. The system automatically maintains mark-ons or profit margins in the event of price fluctuations.
Wholesale order processing and retail POS
Autopart Tyres point of sale screens give you instant access to all the information you need to process customer transactions quickly and accurately. Counter staff will be able to access details such as stock availability, special promotions, alternative products and customer information, facilitating efficient customer service, while providing valuable opportunities for cross-selling and up-selling.
Purchase order processing
The order processing capabilities of Autopart Tyres enable you to simplify your order management and ensure that products are stocked at optimum levels at all times. The system’s smart functionality goes far beyond simple order processing, with lead-time calculations, re-order suggestions and inter-branch transfers combining to improve your order efficiency. At the same time, by analysing best-buys, promotions and multi-sourcing opportunities, the system identifies the most economical supplier for each order to help maximise your profit margins.
Autopart Tyres tracks your stock automatically throughout the sales cycle, from goods received to de-allocation and despatch. The system creates electronic ‘bin cards’ to record each movement, so you always have access to accurate information on current stock levels. In addition, the system’s extensive analysis capabilities allow you to recalculate minimum and maximum stock levels based on sales history and expected demand.
The comprehensive accounting capabilities of Autopart Tyres can be adapted to suit the specific requirements of your business. The accounting functionality is fully integrated within the system, so all transactions are automatically recorded in the correct ledgers, with no need for manual data entry. To further simplify your accounts administration, there are dedicated modules for credit control, VAT accounting, reporting and reconciliation.
The Autonet suite of online applications facilitates e-trading throughout your supply chain. There are web interfaces for both trade and retail sales and purchasing. You can even connect directly to the back-end systems of your trading partners, so you can check stock and prices online, raise electronic orders and transmit acknowledgements.
Business analysis and CRM
The Phocas Business Intelligence module helps you to assess your company’s performance in detail against a whole range of criteria. Your key performance data can be presented in a host of customised graphs and charts, making it easy for you to identify trends and areas for improvement. The Autopart Tyres CRM module collects and analyses data from customer sales activity, providing information to help you improve customer service and generate additional sales.
