Designed to assist fleet parts managers, OEM dealers, warehouse distributors and truck operators, the new system is available immediately, free-of-charge, in the United States, Canada and South America, with other regions of the world to be added in the coming months.
MeritorpartsOnline.com replaces the company's previous e-commerce system, XpresswayPlus.com, which was introduced in 1998. Current XpresswayPlus users may continue using their existing log-in credentials and any established reporting will transition with the user's account.
Based on customer feedback and research, the new system features:
- Improved and intuitive navigation and easy-to-read pages that provide a simple transition from parts searches to order entry
- New product information, promotions, improved parts comparisons, batch cross-reference upload, and 3D 360-degree rotating and zoom product photography
- Upload template for both stock and emergency orders, quick order feature
- Re-order purchase orders from historical data
In the fall of 2013, a second phase of the system will be introduced with additional features, including recommended up-selling and cross-selling, and an ad-maker kit for dealers and distributors.
