FOSTER CITY, Calif., Nov 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- SHIFTMobility announces the launch of Mobile Private Label as a Service (PLaaS) for part manufacturers and distributors, built on its innovative automotive platform at a fraction of the typical cost.
SHIFTMobility's innovative All-In-One platform for the auto industry revolutionizes the way businesses collaborate and grow. By vertically integrating manufacturers, distributors, and repair centers over a common platform, SHIFTMobility enables businesses to leverage the power of mobile connectivity to drive value, agility, and deep insight – all at the speed of now.
Today, SHIFTMobility takes away the complexity by offering a branded application for iOS and Android deployed on its All-In-One open and extensible platform. PLaaS allows manufacturers and distributors the option to pick and choose the features they want from a selection of innovative modules to deliver advanced capabilities tailored to fit their business needs. Key modules include: Customer management, mobile commerce, distributor network management, parts libraries, advanced search, mobile optimized catalogs, VIN and license plate scanner, subscription management, chat, SMS alerts, and in depth local market intelligence with parts coverage. Businesses of any size can quickly enable their customers to connect with them anytime, anywhere, and on any device.
"It's all about bringing the aftermarket industry together to transact more efficiently," said Kevin Mullen, VP of Business Development. When a manufacturer extends their catalogs to the SHIFTMobility platform, all distributors in their private network get instant access to view the entirety of the product lines, locate the right parts for the right car, and get those parts delivered quickly.
Specialty Products Company, designers and manufacturers of innovative automotive suspension parts and tools since 1971, opted for PLaaS when creating their first mobile application: AlignGuide. According to Specialty Products' Chief Operating Officer Mina Cox, "SHIFTMobility's Private Label as a Service enabled us to quickly and cost-effectively make the leap to mobile. With the AlignGuide app, our customers now have instant access to our entire product library, alignment specifications, and illustrations wherever they are. As manufacturers of world-class suspension parts and tools, we never compromise, so when we made the decision to deploy our first mobile app we knew it had to be done right - and SHIFTMobility delivered."
