Motive Helps MaxxTraxx be the First SMS to Integrate with FordParts.com
Motive Retail, global systems integrator, announced today that MAXXTRAXX by Scott Systems will be the first shop management system (SMS) to fully integrate with FordParts.com, thanks to help from their integration platform, Motive Integrator eXchange (MIX).
Now, MAXXTRAXX system users can look-up parts directly from the FordParts.com catalog, see their preferred dealer inventory levels and pricing, and seamlessly place and manage orders for Ford parts without leaving the shop management system, saving them time and hassle. This integration gives independent repair shops an efficient, cost-effective way to order Ford authentic parts and Ford Dealers a level playing field against aftermarket parts suppliers.
“As the automotive repair industry changes, tougher competition and shrinking profit margins have become a way of life for shop owners and being profitable in this economic environment has become more difficult. As a leading shop management system provider for the automotive repair industry, we are dedicated to enhancing our customers’ ability to better manage their business. The ability to access FordParts.com and place orders directly through MAXXTRAXX is a game changer when it comes to shop efficiency and billable hours,” says Mark Giraud – President, Scott Systems.
The real-time integration between MAXXTRAXX and FordParts.com provides independent repair shops with a seamless online ordering experience made possible by automotive integrator, Motive Retail, using MIX.
