OEC and PartsTrader integrate to streamline collision parts ordering

Cleveland and Chicago—OEConnection (OEC), a technology provider for OEM distribution networks, and PartsTrader, an online parts procurement marketplace, announced an integration agreement which will enable quote requests and orders originating from the PartsTrader application to be processed in the OEC dealer portal through the CollisionLink parts procurement solution.  The bi-directional integration will allow dealer users of CollisionLink to process quote requests and orders originating in the PartsTrader platform, as well as other orders received from body shops using CollisionLink Shop or other third-party integrators.

“As the prevailing solution provider open on the desktop and used extensively by franchised automotive dealer parts departments nationwide every day, OEC considers integration with PartsTrader part of our continuing mission to drive efficiencies through the dealers’ systems,” said OEC President  CEO Chuck Rotuno.  “The incorporation of PartsTrader order processing into CollisionLink will aid us in that effort by reducing the time dealers spend fulfilling their collision parts orders.”
