The Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance (AAPA) is holding its 5th Information Technology Summit (IT Summit) in San Antonio, Texas, on Sept. 19, 2012.
The event keeps supplier channel partners up-to-date on AAPA IT strategies and solutions, and is tailored for hands-on information technology professionals from CIOs to catalog managers.
According to AAPA CIO Dale Hopkins, the IT Summit meetings are effective at reducing costs, increasing sales, and strengthening relationships.
“This year the Alliance earned the R. L. Polk Inventory Efficiency Award for its ground-breaking and industry-leading Inventory Optimization Tool (IOT)," states Hopkins. "IOT gives Alliance members the power to create their own super-accurate stocking models by integrating third-party registration data with point-of-sale and other information.”
The Alliance MyPlaceForParts e-commerce solution also takes center stage at the IT Summit.
“While IOT is award-winning technology for what to stock, MyPlaceForParts is technology that helps sell more parts,” said Hopkins. “It is an information, query and transaction software suite that includes parts, supplies, accessories, tools - everything our members sell - and it’s open for business 24/7/365.”
