2016 - Another year of productive development for Autopart
Market leading business management solution continues to grow as regular releases improve system functionality
Throughout 2016, MAM Software rolled out several version releases of its Autopart business management solution (BMS) which introduced refinements and improvements designed to increase the software’s efficiency and functionality.
The updates consisted of over 80 enhancements and new features within Autopart, including:
- Enhancing the software’s speed and stability by utilising the latest Microsoft frameworks
- Improving file maintenance routines - Customer x-refs can be amended en masse, and changes to average/latest cost can be more accurately audited
- Over 30 developments to optimise workflow and increase efficiency in the sales screen
- Enhanced stock control - More flexible average usage calculations, tighter control over which operators can reject returns, and improved integration with MAM Warehouse Management Software
In addition to these updates, MAM also continued the development of Autocat v8, its popular parts catalogue. New application releases enhanced part-to-vehicle matching accuracy and decreased lookup times, while continued work with suppliers increased the number of products mapped to the new v8 Make Model Index.
MAM also launched new versions of its e-commerce solutions, developed by its Origin subsidiary. These included WebTrade, a B2B trade portal, and WebRetail, a B2C retail website for parts and accessory sales.
In September, MAM reported an ongoing shift towards its cloud-hosted solutions. The number of businesses using its Autopart Online solution had risen to over 300, meaning that more than 3,000 users are accessing their business management software from the MAM cloud.
Looking forward, 2017 will see an array of new updates and improvements to Autopart, with several new features, including integration with Route Monkey, a delivery optimisation service, already in the pipeline to be rolled out next year.
