Staying Apace of the Changes in the Automotive Aftermarket

Riversand’s Automotive Aftermarket offering is your ally in this difficult journey to run your business against demanding and ever-changing challenges. Riversand’s experience in this space helps us deliver a business-friendly solution that performs the tedious tasks of managing the complexities of maintaining your vehicle, part, fitment data. This frees you up to focus on your business decisions and deliver the best customer experience to your buyers.

 In the automotive aftermarket, how are you keeping up with the latest standards? Can you measure your opportunity cost for not doing so? If you’re not keeping up with the latest standards and regulations, are you dealing with penalties as a result?

 Are errors in your parts database costing you? Or, is incomplete fitment data hurting you? And if so, do you know how much and how it’s hurting your business? 

Is your coverage information effectively communicated with your customers and shoppers in a timely and immediate way?

Are you dreading increases to your digital inventory of parts, catalog assortment, or vehicle coverage because your current IT solution can’t scale? Are errors caused by using older, legacy IT systems?

Are you compromising with a one-size-fits-all PIM/MDM from a vendor that doesn’t really “get” your industry? Or are you using your e-commerce solution to make-shift a PIM/MDM band-aid for what you really need?

With Riversand MDxM for the Automotive Aftermarket, you can stream and orchestrate your multiple domains of data from different vendors; and give you the control to govern data to the right people at the right time. All to make better decisions and provide a better experience.

We know ACES and PIES

In the auto industry, you deal with these unique industry standards that make it easy to manage and exchange data. But each time there is a modification to the data format or rules, or when the reference data changes, you’re left to scramble to modify your data to conform to these standards. With Riversand’s ACES and PIES apps, managing your data is no longer your concern. Your data will always be ready for the endpoints that need to see it.

A single unified view of all your data

You are probably stuck with systems that were designed 20-30 years ago. These legacy systems were barely getting the job done for your data management requirements but are now falling woefully short in the rapidly evolving automotive segment. Your data is sitting in silos that not only leads to errors that can unduly increase your costs. but also hurt your topline growth. With Riversand’s single unified multi-domain platform, you can be assured that your data is in synch across all systems. This singular view of your data, will unlock access to all the built-in insights growing your revenue that comes from cross-domain intelligence and that will help you make better business decisions.
