"We need parts data from 10,000 dealers, with 20 different DMS types, updated two times a day, to feed 14 unique applications. Can DMI do that?"
A major third-party in the automotive parts sector came to DMI in 2002 with a complex set of requirements. They say that DMI has met or exceeded their requirements every year since.
DMI offers parts data in four different product configurations. Data products reduce costs and keep implementation time to a minimum.
- InfoIQ Parts Inventory -- Identify and track parts availability at individual automotive dealerships. InfoIQ Inventory data is frequently used to fuel parts locators, increase sales, and drive parts procurement.
- InfoIQ Parts Invoice -- Successfully manage manufacturer parts marketing and incentive programs. Access complete, robust data on all parts sales transactions, whether sold over the counter, with a repair order, or through a body shop.
- InfoIQ Parts Demand -- The data you need to analyze patterns in demand and identify and predict trends. Captures and validates historical parts sales - both actual and lost.
- InfoIQ Parts Source Stocking -- Stocking, lifecycle, and demand information from the DMS to help you best evaluate your stock settings. This valuable, up-to-date information can be analyzed to better manage the parts supply chain, supporting reduced operating capital for both the retail dealer and the manufacturer.
Successful parts management keeps OEM and dealer inventory costs low and service levels high. You can rely on accurate data from DMI to fuel your parts performance.
What our Customers are Saying...
"Our customers -- thousands of dealers -- rely on us for speed and accuracy in our applications. Our dealers use 14 of our applications, and we use one data source for all of them, DMI. If the data wasn't accurate, no dealer would use our products. The accuracy of the data DMI provides is one of our competitive advantages."
"DMI works as a team with us, and I really like how they've not just supplied us with accurate, timely data, but have helped us to create new business processes and solutions for our customers. DMI has never shied away from a new challenge and works with us to explore new business opportunities."
