VIPAR Heavy Duty invests in Partsphere digital ecosystem

VIPAR Heavy Duty announced additional investments in its Partsphere Digital Ecosystem suite of technology products as part of the organization’s long-term strategy to offer technology and information-related solutions to support the success of the network.

Partsphere OMS, an order management system that facilitates the electronic transmission of orders, invoices, and documents between distributors and suppliers, has seen a significant increase in adoption within the network since its launch, VIPAR reports. All of VIPAR Heavy Duty’s 116 distributors are fully integrated and 87 of the network’s supplier partners are set up, or in the process of finalizing integration, to conduct their electronic data interchange (EDI) transactions through the platform, the organization says.

VIPAR Heavy Duty recently expanded its order management technology with the launch of Partsphere Fleet, its next-generation fleet order management system, to connect distributors and national fleet trading partners. Powered by the same technology behind Partsphere OMS, Partsphere Fleet integrates with distributors’ systems and utilizes EDI capabilities to provide a scalable parts ordering solution for fleet customers based on modern technology and with increased functionality, VIPAR Heavy Duty noted. Automated algorithms conduct parts matching and price validation to streamline the ordering process and improve accuracy, optimizing time and resource savings for distributors and their fleet customers, the organization explained.

Partsphere PIM (product information management system) contains information to help distributors and their customers locate needed parts. Recently implemented improvements include product attributes, descriptions, interchanges, image assets and more. With nearly one million parts currently managed in Partsphere PIM, the rollout and evolution of partner integrations with the platform, combined with enhancements to the organization’s Partsphere Cloud file sharing system, makes transferring product information to its end-use technology platforms more efficient, reducing the time required to manage the data, and increasing speed to market, the company stated.

VIPAR Heavy Duty’s Partsphere Digital Ecosystem also includes Partsphere MDM, a master data management system and Partsphere B2B digital commerce solutions.
