Branded PartsEdge 2.0 by SET, it is expected to be operational by early September 2016 in five states serviced by SET: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina.
Toyota Motor Sales and Gulf States Toyota already use the OPS software toolkit as one of their parts management platforms. The latest partnership in Toyota's remaining region will create a seamless, nationwide technology platform across the entire Toyota automotive network in the U.S. to facilitate collision repair through an integrated, highly agile replenishment system for delivering genuine Toyota parts.
The OPS technology suite of features for SET includes OPSTrax, DeliveryTrax, TraxPod, TraxDrive and ValuTrax, which offers a fully integrated, real time workflow that allows shops to quickly conquest parts to their dealer online. All are designed to facilitate ordering, inventory, tracking, notification and delivery of parts through a centralized electronic interface. According to the company, the suite is a "one stop" solution to provide competitive advantage and profitability to dealership parts departments and collision centers.
"Deploying the unique OPS Software to our Southeast Toyota Dealers adds a progressive tool kit that enhances the service provided to our customers and strengthens the Toyota brand," said Ray Natour, VP SET Fixed Operations. "It will also generate efficiencies for our dealers that will lead to faster, more economical repairs."
"We are pleased to extend our highly innovative software solution to the Southeast Toyota's Dealers and are confident that its deployment will have a significant positive impact on the brand's business, reputation and consumer loyalty," added Nick Bossinakis, CEO and co-founder of OPS.
"The adoption of the OPS supply chain technology suite by Southeast Toyota signals the significant return on investment in the broad Toyota landscape where it's been creating supply chain efficiencies for over the last few years," said Sib Bahjat, OPS COO and co-founder. "The SET software system application and resulting parts network should be operational by September 1, 2016."
