Ensuring your business is prepared for winter

As winter approaches, car owners are busy preparing for the cold. Appropriate tyres are being purchased, good quality lights are being considered to combat the early nightfall and health checks are being carried out to ensure that their vehicle is ready for the approaching cold snap.

There is no better time for businesses in the automotive aftermarket 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, the business management software from MAM Software, has been specifically 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, MAM Software says Autopart is packed with a host of features that can help increase your revenue and ensure you are fully prepared for winter.

Reduce your inventory costs
Slow-moving and unprofitable products can eat into your margins more than you think. MAM Software says Autopart can analyse sales trends across single or multi-site locations and adjust your 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. MAM Software states that 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, according to MAM Software.

Control your pricing
The company adds that 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, MAM Software claims 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.”
