Vehicle Database


Members receive the Autoclimate vehicle database - a powerful stand-alone application based on DVLA and SMMT data. By entering the vehicle registration, 35 fields of information about the vehicle are presented. This facility makes it easier, quicker and more accurate to produce repair estimates and to notify parts suppliers about the exact vehicle and derivative. The risks of downstream parts problems are therefore minimised with a greater chance of right first time ordering.

Management Information


Members are able to access a range of on-line management reports about their own trading position with Autoclimate. Transaction visibility provides the opportunity to focus on more efficient purchasing and to secure additional financial savings.


Reports cover:



Parts purchases
Monthly expenditure, savings from manufacturer retail prices, usage by product group

Lost opportunities
Schedules quoted parts – not ordered. Presents savings which may not have been achieved if parts were subsequently purchased from another supplier.

If required, management information can be reviewed in consultation with an Autoclimate regional business manager. A consultation can include a comparison of results with benchmark data and highlight opportunities to save more and increase the profitability of future purchasing.
 
Parts purchase rebate
Members, who enjoy special member price terms for parts, tools and consumables, subsequently receive the additional benefit of a monthly purchase rebate as part of the membership programme.  The rebate represents a clear and valuable contribution to bottom line performance.

Parts locator
Members are able to locate and source parts which are held at franchised dealers who are members of the parts locator programme. This facility is ideally suited where the subscriber’s regular suppliers are unable to provide the part without creating a stock or back order position. Obtaining the part more quickly can mean that the job is completed sooner, and the repaired vehicle returned to the customer.
