A1 Motor Stores has simplified its warehouse order processing for its members as part of its continued investment for the buying and marketing group. A1 has over 270 members that have access to the 13,000 sq ft central distribution centre (aka A12U) based in Hinckley, Leicestershire with access to over 2,150 product lines. MAM Software’s Autonet business-to-business (B2B) electronic ordering solutions has been implemented at the distribution centre providing a more efficient ordering process for members. It has deployed MAM’s ‘Autonet Online’ web portal and ‘Autonet Autopart Seller’ connectivity solutions to provide browser-based and application-based ordering. By implementing the MAM Autonet solutions, A1 members can check availability at the warehouse, confirm pricing and place orders from within their management software or a web browser. A1 members that run MAM’s Autopart application can use ‘Autonet Autopart Seller’ solution to access information within their own purchase screens. All other members can use the ‘Autonet Online’ web portal through a standard web browser. Dave Burrows, A1 Motor Stores Chairman commented: “Members reaction and feedback has been positive since Autonet went live, for eg. ‘Great to be able to see the stocks levels before ordering’. We are confident that members will find this system much easier to use and can find the information that they are looking for more efficiently.” Editor’s notes: A1 • 189 members and 274 outlets members • Established in 1983 • Has a 13,000 sq ft support and distribution centre in Hinckley • An A1 Motor Store is an independent business, which has joined forces with over 250 other stores nationwide to provide the best choice, the best price and most of all the best service to online and in-store customers. • All of A1 stores are owner-operated with professional, highly trained, courteous staff giving you expert advice and prompt service with competitive prices. • Whenever you need help or advice with any of your motoring requirements or problems, you can be sure that A1 Motor Stores will help.
