SDC launches new ‘PartsPlus’ stock management system

SDC Truck and Trailer Parts has launched its new ‘PartsPlus’ consignment stock management system, which it says will benefit customers by offering them enhanced stock replenishment across its 16,000+ parts range, as well as reduced inventory management, and operational benefits.

It claims the system eliminates the possibility of stockouts and delivery lead times by creating a holding stock of vital parts at the customer’s warehouse, ensuring that they always have the parts they need on hand.

The core functions of the PartsPlus system are stock replenishment and simplified purchasing.

When parts are scanned out from the operator’s warehouse, this triggers a set of automated actions that will inform the user that a replenishment is required.

It is only at this point that SDC Truck & Trailer Parts will invoice for the Parts they have selected.

By automating consignment stock management, PartsPlus minimises the need for manual order processing, allowing the user to improve efficiencies and have a full track on their Parts usage.

In addition to its core functionality, SDC says its PartsPlus system offers several other useful features such as the ability to add, remove, check, count, and move stock within locations.

This means that operators can easily manage their stock levels, ensuring that the right parts are in the right place when needed, they have a full data track on what parts have been used, and their profile of stock is always updated with real time information.

The system can be used to compare usage by part or trailer to identify any areas where business improvements can be made.

SDC Truck and Trailer Parts says it provides all the hardware, software, and training needed to implement the PartsPlus system. This includes barcode scanners, as well as the software itself.

The system can be integrated with existing reporting systems and training is provided to ensure that users are fully equipped to use the technology effectively.

Gavin Diamond, SDC Truck & Trailer parts director said: “Our new PartsPlus system provides customers with real-time visibility and control over their Parts stock, and track of their spend per asset.

“As technology continues to advance, it will play an increasingly central role in the way businesses operate, with digitalisation and data analysis becoming essential tools for fleet management.”

Headquartered in Toomebridge, Co. Antrim, SDC Truck & Trailer Parts is one of Ireland’s largest commercial vehicle parts suppliers with a total of nine branches, and a further four across England and Scotland.
