Activant Solutions Inc. and Canadian Tire Corporation, Limited have signed an agreement that will bring the Activant PartExpert Suite of data products and Activant LaserCat 3 electronic catalogue to all Canadian Tire Retail and PartSource business locations.
Canadian Tire Retail will convert from its proprietary auto parts catalogue to the Activant PartExpert suite of data solutions. These include the new, Windows-based Activant LaserCat 3 eCatalogue, Activant Cover-to-Cover graphical eCatalogue module, Activant All Lines database and Activant InterChange reference for the network’s parts operations, as well as fully integrated labour and motor repair information, service intervals, and tire fitment data for its service bays.
In addition to Canadian Tire Retail locations, the company’s rapidly growing network of PartSource retail and wholesale parts stores also will rely on the Activant PartExpert suite.
“Improving the overall automotive customer experience for our customers, we will now be providing our counter professionals and service advisors with the most advanced and powerful front-line business tools,” said Tony Kuczynski, vice president of automotive, Canadian Tire Corp.
