Truck parts inventory software to increase accuracy, productivity and fleet uptime
As the trucking industry continues to expand, so does the requirement for prompt truck service and maintenance. Fleets depend on properly working trucks for transportation of their over-the-road and local freight. When a truck is down for service or maintenance, fleet managers need the correct truck parts to be delivered rapidly to minimize downtime and loss of income. Reliable parts distributors and suppliers are crucial to the trucking industry.
Heavy-duty truck parts businesses stay ahead of the aftermarket game and increase dependability by offering various sales channels, wider product availability, precise delivery of items, speedy service and personalized customer service. An inventory and warehouse management solution such as Acctivate Truck Parts Inventory Software helps them better manage and grow their business.
Acctivate truck parts inventory software assists heavy-duty parts distributors and suppliers to manage inventory with robust features including ecommerce, multiple-location, barcoding, traceability, landed cost, service management, customer management and reporting.
Acctivate streamlines operations and processes in your business and warehouse in order to:

Truck parts inventory software helps distributors gain control of their warehouse
Acctivate’s proven features were designed to help small and mid-sized businesses that need to improve inventory and warehouse management. Acctivate replaces dated methods for managing inventory such as memory, pen and paper, note and spreadsheets, allowing your business to grow.
Acctivate truck parts inventory software with multi-channel capabilities
While some fleet owners still prefer a direct sales contact for ordering parts, more and more are beginning to purchase heavy-duty parts online. To serve both customers, distributors must offer their products through multiple channels, e.g., face-to-face, phone, fax, mail, catalogue or online. Whichever way your customers prefer, you can better serve them by managing all channels in one place.
Acctivate’s bi-lateral synchronization automatically updates information from orders, stock levels, customers and tracking between your web store and Acctivate. The result is consistent information available for customers shopping on a website, sales associates processing orders, and all personnel within the company.
Truck parts inventory software with multi location / bin location / service truck
With the need for faster delivery of products and/or services to fleets, some distributors, suppliers and dealers have inventory at several locations, e.g., warehouses, aisles, bins, shelves, service trucks or other. Acctivate’s multiple location control tracks inventory quantities in any company-defined location. Locations may be added at once upon set up or on the fly.
Acctivate truck parts inventory software with vendor managed inventory (VMI)
When inventory is managed by the distributor, both the fleet owner and the distributor lower inventory levels. The distributor can anticipate demand to improve customer service and decrease future lead times. Handling consigned inventory or vendor managed inventory with Acctivate allows the distributor to manage with transparency to the fleet owners. An additional benefit – inventory can be excluded from cycle counts within the warehouse.
Acctivate truck parts inventory software with barcoding
Barcoding enables distributors to improve accuracy, increase speed of real-time inventory and tracking information, and know exactly what’s in stock to reduce customer’s downtime during repairs.
Additionally, Acctivate’s powerful barcoding capabilities allows truck parts distributors to:
- Simplify inventory counts by scanning barcodes
- Instantly verify inventory counts
- Quickly transfer inventory between warehouses
- Immediately adjust inventory quantities

Acctivate aftermarket truck parts software with landed cost
The true cost of products is not just what you paid for the items – there are also many additional costs associated with the acquisition of the products. Acctivate’s landed cost enables distributors to determine the true cost of products by adding all extras such as taxes, VAT, government fees, insurance, duties and freight to the cost. These costs may be added during time of receipt or sometime later.
