PartsTrader announced today that it has successfully processed its 1,000,000th parts job since it launched its online marketplace in February 2012.
On August 7, Bowman's Auto Service Inc. of Flatwoods, Kentucky opened a repair order on a 2011 Ford F-150 and utilized PartsTrader to source and order the required parts, marking the 1,000,000th repair job that has been supported by the PartsTrader system in the last 30 months.
"I've been working with PartsTrader for over a year now," said Doyle DeLawder, Bowman's Parts Manager. "This system makes it easier to send out quotes and receive responses. It really cuts down on my workflow."
Since the initial product launch, the PartsTrader team has worked through many product updates and enhancements, all driven by user feedback such as from Bowman's Auto Service, Inc.
"Our 80 plus US-based associates have worked very hard for the last few years to get us to this point, and we're pleased that an ever growing number of repairers across the country are turning to us for their parts sourcing needs,"said Dale Sailer, PartsTrader's Vice President of Business Development.
There are currently more than 7,500 collision repair businesses and 8,500 suppliers active on the PartsTrader system, utilizing the online marketplace to process more than $1B in parts orders annually.
"We're thrilled to be the one-millionth parts job!" said DeLawder.
Sailer contacted Bowman's to notify them of the milestone and purchased lunch for all of the shop's employees to commemorate the occasion.
