ShowMeTheParts recently launched a collaboration with AP Exhaust Technologies, Inc. to power its new mobile app. The new AP Exhaust app, available for both iPhone and Android devices, makes it easy to find the correct part for one of the most strictly regulated pieces on cars today — catalytic converters. The AP Exhaust app zeros-in on the proper converter using information from the VIN, either by scanning a barcode or by entering the vehicle’s license plate number.
AP’s mobile app couples regular updates from the ShowMeTheParts database with the accuracy of VIN and license plate lookups to allow shops to feel confident that they are installing the correct converter.
“AP Exhaust is thrilled to announce the launch of our new mobile app, powered by Vertical Development’s ShowMeTheParts. Mechanics will find the license plate lookup feature most useful, since they will know the correct replacement parts for a vehicle upon the customer’s arrival or even when taking an appointment over the phone,”said Gary Nix, director of marketing for AP Exhaust Technologies.
“Utilizing the ShowMeTheParts database and search functionality, the AP Exhaust app matches a license plate number with the correct VIN. The result is a list of compatible parts from all of AP’s lines, from ANSA and AP stock solutions to XLERATOR and Silverline performance exhausts,” added Nix.
ShowMeTheParts provides information on over 300+ suppliers and manufacturers of Aftermarket replacement parts. With lighting fast turnaround time, users can be assured the information is the most current available and published in the way the supplier intended it.
