From banking to shopping to social interactions, the number of tasks we turn to our mobile devices to accomplish is increasing at an exponential rate. The smartphone has become the go-to device in our lives and shows no signs of slowing down.

With this in mind, the question ShowMeTheParts customers are increasingly asking is “How can we use mobile to reach our customers?”

To answer this question and more, Paul Scripp, Director of Sales, sat down to discuss the value of using the ShowMeTheParts mobile app.

It’s all about speed and accuracy in the digital age

When meeting with manufacturers, Scripp encourages them to consider the many ways speed plays a role in creating positive results.

Identify accurate product search through VIN scanning and license plate lookup

By far the most used and beneficial feature of the ShowMeTheParts mobile app is the VIN scanner. When a car enters the bay, simply open the car door and scan the barcode for direct access to all available products.

Not only is the search fast, but it is also accurate.

“While a year/make/model/engine search may return four, five or six results depending on equipment variables, our VIN search decodes at that basic level and then goes deeper,” Scripp said. “We will look at whether a manufacturer matches ACES-specific requirements such as transmission, aspiration and drive type, so users find parts only for that specific vehicle – it takes all the guesswork out.”

By putting a custom mobile application in the hands of the end user, manufacturers increase the speed and accuracy of the part identification process.

Taking things to the next level, the newly added license plate decoder further simplifies and speeds up the search process.

Get up and run quickly

The other concern Scripp often hears from customers is the fear that the process will take too long or consume internal time and resources that are luxuries they don’t have. They are shocked to learn that ShowMeTheParts custom mobile apps are ready to go within four to six weeks.

“We have an extremely tight process to build our apps and we have a website that our customers use that is very plug and play. It’s as simple as dropping their images and go.

As the speed of business increases, ShowMeTheParts is here to help you rise to the challenge.

Stand out from the crowd with brand differentiation

Although the Internet has provided businesses with easier and more cost-effective ways to connect with larger audiences, it has also increased competition. Customers can quickly find multiple options within a category, making brand differentiation the key to success.

“A custom ShowMeTheParts mobile app is clearly a differentiator between our customers and their competitors. Not only does it improve the overall brand image, but it also increases the number of places customers can find them by placing their brands in the App Store.

Each ShowMeTheParts mobile app is customized with a branded splash screen, app icon, and embeds brand colors for seamless brand integration.

Combined with their other digital marketing efforts, manufacturers are able to build trust with their prospects and clearly differentiate their brand in the market through their personalized application.

Three other key benefits

A great tool for sales teams

The ShowMeTheParts mobile app also becomes a great sales tool for sales teams. “When they walk into a store to showcase their product and the competition has an outdated, grease-filled book and you have a free mobile app, that’s a big differentiator.”

Quick access to current product information and support documentation

Unlike paper catalogs, with the ShowMeTheParts mobile app, customers know they have the most up-to-date product information. Plus, supporting documents or installation details such as the cabin air filter access point for an application give technicians everything they need to complete the job.

“It puts us at the forefront of the industry and allows our brands to add more value to their catalog offering.”

Helps organizations achieve their environmental, social and governance (ESG) objectives

Stopping or significantly reducing the number of catalogs printed is not only a cost saving measure, it also helps organizations achieve their ESG goals by reducing their environmental footprint.

“But isn’t it expensive? »

If you’ve considered a mobile app in the past, but waited because you thought it would be too expensive, you’re not alone.

“I think when people hear ‘mobile app,’ they think expensive,” Scripp noted. “However, we’ve removed that barrier to entry, and combined with the cost savings of eliminating catalogs, customers end up saving money while providing a better product and user experience.”
