GLEN MILLS, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Axalta Coating Systems, a leading global manufacturer of liquid and powder coatings, completed a certified interface with PartsTrader® for electronic parts procurement. The new ProfitNetTM Collision Shop Management System (CSMS) interface is a two-way electronic interface between the ProfitNet Management System and PartsTrader that helps eliminate redundant tasks between the two systems. Key information needed for parts procurement and order status can now seamlessly be transferred between parts vendors and collision shops using the ProfitNet Management System.

The ProfitNet CSMS is a software program designed to measure and manage all aspects of the collision repair business. The program provides collision shop owners with detailed operational and financial information needed to make decisions regarding the productivity and profitability of their businesses.

“Currently, PartsTrader software is widely used by Axalta customers via their estimating platforms,” stated Tom McGarry, Axalta’s North American Information Technology Services Manager. “Now they can easily use much of the PartsTrader functionality from within the ProfitNet CSMS, thereby saving time and eliminating potential errors from double entries. Axalta is dedicated to enhancing the ProfitNet CSMS with the latest technology to help lower shops’ administrative costs by providing a management solution that is affordable, easy to use and communicates with all industry software partners including parts procurement software, Customer Satisfaction Index services, dealership management software, paint software, auto rental services and accounting software.”

"By partnering with Axalta, PartsTrader continues in its commitment to streamlining the parts procurement process with this integration between two industry leading platforms,” said Dale Sailer, PartsTrader’s Vice President of Business Development. “Collision repairers who use both PartsTrader and the ProfitNet CSMS are positioned to achieve additional savings. The improved margins that PartsTrader can help collision repair shops achieve, combined with the reduced administration costs by using the ProfitNet CSMS, are designed to result in bottom line profits for our mutual customers.”
