Epicor Software Corporation has announced that several innovative new electronic catalog, point of sale (POS), accounting and related features are now available through Epicor Eagle for the Aftermarket software, a powerful business management solution for single- and multi-store automotive parts enterprises.
The new release of Eagle for the Aftermarket software includes the latest Epicor LaserCat 3 automotive eCatalog interface, which features two new optional search tools related to original equipment (OE) parts. The Epicor OE for Parts Not Found feature enables users to identify the OE part number for automotive applications where no equivalent aftermarket part is available through the distributor’s normal suppliers. The counterperson can use the OE part number either to interchange to an alternative aftermarket supplier’s part or purchase and resell a part from a local dealer. A second OE lookup feature, Epicor PartExpert OE, offers one-click access to a separate, comprehensive OE parts catalog covering virtually every popular automotive application.
New POS features available through Eagle for the Aftermarket software include a streamlined process for managing stock transfers between stores; a versatile tracking capability that serves as a quality assurance audit trail on each order; and a tagging system that documents review and approval of each incoming order. The new software features also help users automate defective returns transfers and defect and core returns to suppliers.
