Posted: 10-23-2018

Northern California automotive parts and services provider gains clarity, visibility and accuracy with MAM Software’s Autopart business management solution.

BLUE BELL, Pennsylvania — MAM Software, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of MAM Software Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: MAMS) showcases the power of its Autopart business management system through the experience of one of their customers, Hust Brothers Auto Parts.

Founded in 1919, Hust Brothers Auto Parts has been serving Northern California for almost a century. With 8 locations, they strive to provide automotive parts and services with the success built upon their dedication to customer service, employee satisfaction, and commitment to the communities they serve.

Specifically designed for the automotive aftermarket, Autopart is a versatile business management solution that is designed to seamlessly integrate all sales, stock management, accounting and reporting processes into one easy to use package.

For many years, Hust Brothers utilized an older character based point of sale solution that forced them to do nightly closing procedures, didn’t allow for customization of invoices and was severely lacking in reporting capabilities. Money was being wasted on multi-copy invoices that had to be printed, stored and provided on-demand in hard copy instead of digitally. Hust Brothers saw the need to update their current system with a technologically advanced solution that would allow them to grow and provide the functionality and flexibility they were missing in their existing solution.

Hust Brothers looked at the various point of sale solutions available to the aftermarket and decided that Autopart was the best fit. Implemented in February 2015, Autopart has proven to be the flexible and easy to use business management solution they needed.

Autopart is adaptable for electronic signature pads which have lowered our spending costs on multi-copy invoices, as now all signed invoice copies are stored digitally. It also gave us the ability to 100% customize our invoices to look the specific way we desire.” Robert Fingerlos - IT Manager at Hust Brothers.

Autopart has provided Hust Brothers with a range of benefits since implementation but the biggest benefit over the old solution is Autopart’s reporting capability. The built in reporting and ability to customize the reporting to suit individual needs has allowed Hust Brothers to analyze their data and make improvements where necessary.

“We have been able to devise procedures to help control situational inventory control issues all by making a custom report based on certain criteria. We also have a little incentive program for our sales teams. In order to quickly and accurately track their sales on particular items, we just created a report based on the information needed. With the ability to create custom reports and having a general knowledge of SQL, the ability to quickly pull up data is endless!”

Hust Brothers Auto Parts have been a great customer to work with. Their ability to embrace the newest technology in business management has been key to their success with Autopart. We look forward to working with them for a long time to come.” states Al Neal - VP of Sales, MAM Software.

MAM Software will be presenting Autopart at AAPEX booth #2279. Stop by the booth to see a live demonstration of the software and to meet the MAM Software team.
