Dealer Inventory Management

Empower your Dealers to Achieve and Maintain Optimal Stocking Levels

When implementing a Dealer Inventory Management (DIM) program, OEMs enable their dealers to access a system that would normally be out of reach, empowering them to improve parts availability, decrease excess stock and increase overall profitability.

Most importantly, this system is easy for dealers to use and can be tailored to any skill level. PTC Service Parts Management software can easily integrate with multiple Dealer Management Systems (DMS), and we will train your dealers to ensure a smooth adoption process that won’t strain even the smallest shop.

Your dealers will benefit from better management of parts return and buyback using methods that correlate returns to automatic inventory replenishment. Dealers will improve parts availability, eliminate stock outs, and improve customer service, fostering repeat business and competitive advantages.

Help your service supply chain boost your bottom line.
