Activant Solutions Inc., a provider of business management solutions for the automotive aftermarket, has released a new version of its Activant Prism distribution management system. The new software Activant Prism 14.0 features a variety of new and enhanced tools designed to help increase productivity at the parts counter and in an array of common back-office tasks. Activant Prism is designed to streamline operations for mid-size and single-location WDs and jobbers. With more than 1,000 aftermarket installations, the system also delivers the added confidence business owners prefer when selecting a business management platform.
