If you are using an ERP solution for your business than it has likely become apparent that they are not just for large scale distributors and wholesalers. They have advantages that any size business can benefit from. Everyone has accounting that needs to be done, HR matters to attend to, and customer data to compile. An ERP like Rev Parts Management Software can help with all of this, while continuing to assist in the day to day operations required for any business.
Inventory is the name of the game
If you are in the aftermarket you have a form of inventory. Whether its raw materials coming in to be converted into parts, parts themselves going to shops or being placed in vehicles, even specialty installers and custom techs have to keep track of the comings and goings of pieces used in daily business. This is where Rev Parts comes in for everyone. Track the parts as they come in and compare them with reports on sales or use. Identify which lines are more common and compare suppliers within the system to see if you can locate a better deal on them.
Everyone sells, so make pricing easy
Import and export options make updating supplier pricing fast and simple, and you can even automate import settings to speed things up further. If a supplier cuts you a deal Rev can automatically adjust prices on the fly, so you can make the most on those discounts. When assigning discounts to customers you can do so for a set length of time or indefinitely, so you never have to worry about orders being billed at incorrect price points. Account balances are tracked easily, and credits, core deposits, even gift cards can be tracked as they are applied so you always have an accurate view of your customers statements
Customers are your most important resource, manage them well
Having a CRM is key once you begin to take on large amounts of orders or have a growing customer base. Manage who you have relationships with and keep important information at hand by using a CRM. This tool keeps you prepared for every encounter with your customers and equips you with the information you need to offer them the best solution based on their history and needs. On top of the sales-based benefits, CRM’s let you maintain a more personal relationship with each contact, alerting you to personal details such as birthdays. Having a cloud-based CRM takes it to the next level, offering a limitless storage space so your growth potential is unhindered, and giving you access to valuable information at all times.
Your business at a glance
Having your company available to you on a mobile device gives you a birds eye view of your day to day operations. All files are stored digitally, so access requires only a snap of your fingers to find what you need. When running reports there are hundreds of fully customizable options to choose from to give you the information you need without having to wade through page after page of dubious data. You can even set reports to run during off hours, so as you travel you can have what you need when you arrived before a meeting, or as you walk into work in the morning the results are waiting in your inbox.
