On the other hand, the local auto-part retails can increase their monthly revenue more than 100,000 baht by accepting orders via this system. Currently, most modern-trade workshops in Thailand are using this system to manage all urgent auto-part categories, and to help them expand the businesses much faster such as Fit Auto, Cockpit, Auto1 and Autobacs.
Workshop management system integrated with online auto-part marketplace (AutoHero) for independent workshops who have never used any system before. This system can be used to record repair work, collect customer information including ordering auto-parts from the online auto-part marketplace at upstream prices. With our online auto-part marketplace, the workshops can reduce cost of goods sold by not having to buy large quantities but will still receive a wholesale price. Lately, the online auto-part not only covers 85% of auto-part for all passenger cars in the country, but also covers more than 10,000 of tires variation, allowing the workshops to be able to accommodate all types of customers without having to worry about sourcing for any kind of parts. The system is designed to be user-friendly, without any obligation as well as compatible for computers, tablets, and mobile phones with a starting price at only 799 baht per month.
Warehouse management system (AutoExpress) is a system that facilitates both online and offline trading for distributor, and manufacturer. In terms of warehousing, fulfilling, and shipping, AUTOPAIR helps sellers who don’t have enough time to pack and ship orders by themselves when there are large sales volumes. The system can also be connected via API between the warehouse and the online auto-parts marketplace to increase sales opportunities for new customers. AUTOPAIR, recently, contain 3 service warehouse locations covering Bangkok and its vicinities, and aim to expand to 10 more locations warehouses in various provinces by 2024
“AUTOPAIR is committed to developing various systems in the future to support and digitize a variety of work in the entire ecosystem from upstream to downstream. We don’t have a policy to create our own auto-parts store because we intend to assist everyone in the industry to work more easily and conveniently. We seek for a collaboration, not a competition in order to thrive through the digital disruption era altogether.” Mr. Santi concluded.
