The United States’ largest independent warehouse distributor of automotive exhaust uses MAM’s Autopart and Autocat+ cloud-enabled electronic catalog to customize processes unique to business practices; business management software to improve point of sale and provide flexible technology

MAM Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: MAMS), a leading provider of business management solutions, announced Team Allied Distribution has successfully deployed Autopart software as its new business management system.

Founded in the 1960s, Team Allied is the largest independent warehouse distributor of automotive exhaust in the United States. With 17 warehouse locations in 11 states, they decided to update their business management system to a modern platform to position them for continued success going forward. After evaluating several potential technology partners, they selected MAM.

The new software gives them advantages over their previous system, like a modern cloud-enabled catalog solution provided by Autopart's integrated application, Autocat+:

"MAM Software really designed a more effective catalog," states Jason Hall, Marketing Director of Team Allied. "The updates are much faster, usually processed and loaded into the catalog in a couple of days - not weeks or months. At our request, Autocat+ separates California converters from the other 49 states to prevent the accidental sale of the wrong part. Also, we have control over the grouping of the parts into the categories and groups, allowing us to deploy the catalog in a way that best matches our business practice."

The net results are a more effective sales process. Since the change, customer catalog usage on their B2B site has increased 5 to 6 times over the previous catalog.

The new system offers Team Allied several other advantages. Point-of-Sale is more robust, providing clear visibility to all branches’ inventory and automating transfers with a couple of clicks. Inventory forecasting, integrated General Ledger and Accounts Payable, Reporting and Pricing capabilities are stronger and more flexible with the new technology.

"We made a good choice by updating our business software with MAM," confirms Jason. "The system has met our expectations and we look forward to our continued deployment of all the tools the new technology has to offer."

Patrick Maley, President of MAM Software, Inc., affirms the business relationship with Team Allied Distribution. “We consider it an advantage to have them as a business partner," states Maley. "They are a leader in automotive distribution and they have contributed to the strength of our business solution. We look forward to working with them in the coming years."
