Press Release: Garage Hive to announce LKQ Euro Car Parts integration at Automechanika Birmingham
Community-driven garage management software, Garage Hive is set to announce the integration of the LKQ Euro Car Parts catalogue at Automechanika Birmingham, bringing further time-saving benefits for users.
Garage Hive customers can now access the motor factors’ comprehensive catalogue of products, along with real-time pricing and availability from within the system, before then ordering what’s needed at the click of a button.
“Making parts price and availability visible within Garage Hive and then powering self-service ordering is a real time-saver,” said Ray Dilsons, Managing Director of Garage Hive. “At point of initial enquiry, garages have no need to open other systems to look up parts prices. Adding part numbers and prices to a job can now be done in seconds as can parts ordering.”
An intuitive process allows users to select the ‘basket’ of parts required and add them to a job sheet. A purchase order can then be generated and sent from the system straight to branch.
“We’re delighted by this new partnership,” said Paul Wright, Director of B2B at LKQ Euro Car Parts. “Digital transformation is high on our agenda – both when it comes to adapting our own operations, and as we help our customers to evolve and prepare their businesses for the future.
“As part of this we always advocate the use of Garage Management Software, which support garages to create additional revenue streams, enhance customer service provision, streamline business efficiencies, and maximise billable time on the workshop floor.
“Garage Hive has a brilliant community of workshops which are leading innovation in the sector. These can now seamlessly access our 130,000 strong range through their preferred digital solution – enjoying our unmatched range and the speed of service that comes with every LKQ Euro Car Parts order.”
At the first Automechanika held in the UK since 2019, Garage Hive is encouraging stand visitors to interact with the software during live demonstrations. There will also be plenty of benefits including a chance to win a free tickets (worth £100 each) for The Blend 2023, the widely anticipated annual conference and networking event for independent garage owners taking place on Saturday 7th October in Birmingham.
