Epicor Announces New Catalog and Point of Sale Features Now Available in Epicor Eagle for the Aftermarket Software

OE Parts Lookups, Streamlined Store Transfers, and More Offered in Latest Version of Popular Business Management Solution

DUBLIN, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 19, 2013) - Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail, and services organizations, today announced that several innovative new electronic catalog, point of sale (POS), accounting and related features are now available through Epicor Eagle for the Aftermarket software, a powerful business management solution for single- and multi-store automotive parts enterprises.

The new release of Eagle for the Aftermarket software includes the latest Epicor LaserCat 3 automotive eCatalog interface, which features two new optional search tools related to original equipment (OE) parts. The Epicor OE for Parts Not Found feature enables users to identify the OE part number for automotive applications where no equivalent aftermarket part is available through the distributor's normal suppliers. The counterperson can use the OE part number either to interchange to an alternative aftermarket supplier's part or purchase and resell a part from a local dealer. A second OE lookup feature, Epicor PartExpert OE, offers one-click access to a separate, comprehensive OE parts catalog covering virtually every popular automotive application.

New POS features available through Eagle for the Aftermarket software include a significantly streamlined process for managing stock transfers between stores; a versatile tracking capability that serves as a quality assurance audit trail on each order; and, a tagging system that documents review and approval of each incoming order. The new software features also help users automate defective returns transfers and defect and core returns to suppliers.

"Each new version of Eagle for the Aftermarket software addresses the ever-changing demands facing today's automotive parts businesses," said Steve Bieszczat, senior vice president, automotive and marketing, retail distribution solutions for Epicor. "Our users will find several valuable new tools that can help them save time, increase sales and improve service levels. Ultimately, our aggressive, ongoing Eagle product development helps to maximize the return on our users' investment."

Additional features available through the new release of Eagle for the Aftermarket software include:

  • Streamlined payment processing, with improved P.O. to eInvoice reconciliation
  • Simplified management of returns rules for dynamic automotive promotions
  • Posting of Item Notes for access by all employees at POS
