Automotive Aftermarket Point of Sale

Top Auto Parts POS System Top Image

Auto supply or automotive aftermarket retailers stock and sell a wide range of automobile-related products.  The best auto supply POS systems manage a large number of inventory items, support multiple price levels for retail and wholesale customers and efficiently manage special orders – or the sale of items not in stock.  Many auto parts retailers also offer services and need point of sale software that manages work orders.  Automotive aftermarket retailers compete by providing expert advice and superior customer service. Strong customer relationship management features are vital to successfully marketing to customers, such as notifying them when it’s time to buy new tires or letting the auto enthusiast know about the latest items for their particular make and model of vehicle

Automotive Aftermarket POS specific features in MicroBiz Cloud include:

  • Layaways – collect deposits while holding the item out of inventory.
  • Multiple Checked-in Items – provides ability to manage multiple customer-owned items within a work single customer work order record so you can separately work on multiple vehicles owned by an individual or family.
  • Quotes and Invoices – with the invoice in progress functionality, you can quote a customer, print the quote, then when the customer comes in to purchase, simply recall the on hold invoice and process the sale.
  • Markdown management – easily manage group markdowns, quantity pricing, multi-buy items, promotional pricing and bulk discounting.

Customer based Special Pricing MicroBiz 1

Customer-based Pricing

You have the ability to assign customers to a pricing group (retail, wholesale, tier 1, etc.), making the customer eligible for special customer-based pricing and discounts. Prices are adjusted automatically at the register when a customer record with a special pricing group is attached.  Customer tax groups allow you to maintain different tax settings for different customers (such as non-profits or resellers).

Special Orders and Backorders

Easily sell items not currently in stock (such as specialty auto parts and truck bed liners).  You can mark an item as a special order item at the time its sold, which places it on a list of special order items in the purchasing module.  When the special order item (such as an auto part) is received from the vendor, MicroBiz alerts the user that the item is attached to a customer order, so that the customer can be contacted and the specially-ordered item can be set aside for pick-up or shipment.
