January 2010, MONTREAL. After more than two years of Point of Sale integration with major auto parts suppliers, V2V Technologies Inc, developers and owners of GEM-CAR, a top performance Automotive SMS (Shop Management Software), have official Integration License Agreements with two of today’s industry leaders, namely WHI Solutions (Nexpart, Nexcat) & CARQUEST.
Weblink, CARQUEST’s parts search and ordering website, was the first part search and order site integrated into GEM-CAR making CARQUEST the first major aftermarket distributor to work with GEM-CAR.
With CARQUEST currently busy launching their new and improved version, V2V Technologies decided to add some new benefits of it’s own by integrating the job and labor guides from both sites. Now, shops using CARQUEST Weblink sites can not only search, transfer and order parts, but can also search and transfer job and labor time information. A huge advantage for shop owners, not only in time but in revenue generation.
“CARQUEST in Quebec have been huge allies and supporters of GEM-CAR,” announced Marc Robic, Strategic Alliance Manager. “We’ve been unofficially fully integrated since the conception of GEM-CAR. Now that we’ve been officially granted an Integration License Agreement, it truly feels like we’ve made a huge step forward. It will offer great improvements to the benefit of shop owners. By making sure that GEM-CAR is fully integrated with this new version, and having also integrated the labor guide, we hope to continue to demonstrate our value as a strategic business partner to CARQUEST, not only in Quebec, but across Canada and soon, the USA. When shop owners succeed with the support of their main parts and service suppliers, everybody wins.”
In addition to being fully integrated with Weblink and Weblink v2, GEM-CAR is also approved for purchase by way of CARQUEST’s Business Development Fund Programs for member’s of their Auto-Place and Tech Net repair shop networks.
GEM-CAR is also integrated and certified by other electronic catalogs, such as WHI Solutions (WHI servicing, among many others, Uni-Select, Benson Auto Parts, Group Maska), Internet Auto Parts (IAP), Auto Value (Vast Auto) & ProLink (NAPA).
