Snap-on Business Solutions (SBS), with authorization from Harley-Davidson, has launched the PartsManager Pro electronic parts catalog for all Harley-Davidson dealers. With both online and offline functionality, PartsManager Pro uses Snap-on's industry-leading EPC system to give dealerships the tools they need to look up Harley-Davidson parts. "The Snap-on team is thrilled to be able to offer PartsManager Pro to the entire Harley-Davidson dealer body," says David Foster, Director of Power Equipment for Snap-on Business Solutions. "Our goal is to ensure all dealers have the fastest, most reliable access to the most current H-D parts data available, and to simplify the processes dealers use to look up and sell parts." Dealers who sign up receive access to both PartsManager Pro Chrome Edition, the DVD-based, offline version of the catalog, and PartsManager Pro Online, the Web-based version of the catalog. The pairing ensures dealers have timely access to new parts data as well as rock-solid catalog performance. To showcase PartsManager Pro, Snap-on attended the 2010 Harley-Davidson dealer meeting in Las Vegas. Dealers had the opportunity to view live demonstrations of the parts catalog and to ask the Snap-on team questions about the catalog. With this launch, SBS has included a number of enhancements to PartsManager Pro, including a dramatically improved workflow through a streamlined user interface that combines navigation and search functions into a single window; shortcut function keys for critical application functions; e-mail capabilities; and improved application performance leading to faster parts searches.
