Pinewood launches Parts+ app for issuing parts on the move
Pinewood Technologies have launched their latest multi-platform app, Parts+, which allows parts teams to scan barcodes and issue parts on-the-go.
“To become more productive, dealers must target incremental improvements by streamlining their existing processes and removing the factors which slow them down,” says Neville Briggs, Managing Director at Pinewood.
“Parts+ allows parts teams to issue parts from anywhere using their mobile device. This saves time, because you don’t need to retrieve a part, return it to the counter then issue it from a PC,” explains Briggs.
The Parts+ app features a built-in barcode scanner – a convenient tool for identifying parts faster than the traditional manual search. Scanned items can then be added to operations and issued to the job. Pinewood DMS is fully integrated meaning that the stock levels automatically update in the DMS.
A ‘conversations’ feature lets technicians and the parts department leave notes for each other on a job, improving communication. Technicians can get the parts they require faster to complete the job.
Users have a complete view of jobs across their location, with discounts and issue prices set in the DMS automatically applied.
The addition of Parts+ to Pinewood’s integrated app suite is their latest step towards helping dealers achieve enhanced productivity across their entire dealership.
