Mahle Clevite Looks to Pricedex

Mahle Clevite and Pricedex Software, Inc., today announced that Mahle Clevite Inc. will implement the complete Pricedex product information management (PIM) system to serve its customers in the North American and international markets.
We have been listening to our customers in the marketplace, and to the urging of our industry associations to embrace industry standards and improve our internal data management processes to ensure the speed to market of accurate and complete product information, said Jesse Jones, head of marketing for Mahle Clevite and 25-year veteran of the aftermarket.
Jones added, Based on our research, theyre the only company that provides a complete and flexible PIM solution that can serve our multiple markets, merge all the brands acquired in the acquisition, and that can also serve the requirements of our global business and standards.”
Mahle Clevite is part of Germanys Mahle Group, a Top 30 and nearly $5.7-billion OEM and aftermarket supplier of automotive parts.
We are very pleased that Mahle Clevite has selected Pricedex and our AutoPIM Pro solution, said Terry OReilly, Pricedex President and CEO.
We fully support the industrys effort to adopt parts standards because we know this is something that must happen to improve efficiency and drive cost and time out of the value chain.”
Jones said he expects to see dramatic improvements over the older, legacy systems they have been using.
Fifteen years ago, we developed a leading technology, but since then, like most manufacturers, we have been working with a patchwork of ERP systems, none of which can provide us what we need.
“We have been bridging from that by throwing people at a problem for instance in pricing analysis, or catalog publishing.
“In todays competitive market, that is just not financially practical.”
Pricedex Software Inc. has pioneered the development of world-class product information management solutions to meet the unique needs of the automotive and heavy-duty aftermarket, aerospace and manufacturing industries, along with a variety of supporting tool sets.
