As winter approaches, car owners are busy preparing for the cold. Winter tyres, good quality bulbs and health checks are top of the list of priorities for many motorists.
There is no better time for companies to take a look at their business management software to ensure they are utilising all necessary features to prepare for the winter rush.
Adaptable to suit individual business requirements, Autopart has been designed to help motor factors, parts retailers and distributors maximise sales, control costs and improve profitability.
From increasing revenue with restructured pricing to reducing costs from effective ordering, Autopart is packed with a host of features that can help increase your revenue and ensure you are fully prepared for the winter.
Reduce your inventory costs
Slow-moving and unprofitable products can eat into margins. Autopart can analyse sales trends across single or multi-site locations and adjust stock levels accordingly, leaving you with more profitable stock and less unnecessary purchases.
Increase your average order value
This is a great way to improve your profits from your existing customers. Autopart makes it easy for you to take advantage of cross-sell and up-sell opportunities by linking relevant products together for your staff to recommend at the point-of-sale.
Protect your margins
Strict margin control is essential if you want to maintain a profit. Autopart provides you with tools to enforce margins when your staff are selling products at the counter or pricing stock for resale.
Control your pricing
The key to profitable sales is a pricing strategy that reflects your customers’ varying pricing needs. Autopart can help you define and manage complex pricing models or run special offers tailored by item, product group, customer and/or date.
Cut your communication costs
Many businesses still rely on costly inefficient paper communications. If you’re sending invoices, statements or promotional material by post, Autopart can save you money by communicating with your customers directly via email and SMS text messaging.
Improve your operational efficiency
Companies of all sizes can leverage technology to improve productivity. From smart delivery planning, to automated invoice matching, Autopart contains a wealth of innovative features that can save you time and help your business run smoothly.
Ben Nicholls, sales manager at MAM Software, said: “Autopart is designed to digitise your business, going paperless and streamlining all processes at the same time.
”With winter approaching, many time-consuming jobs can be actioned with ease, it’s the best time to evaluate software and decide whether it’s protecting your margins and maximising the potential of your business.”
