ADP Lightspeed finalized an integration agreement with Helmet House warehouse this week. The agreement allows dealers on the LightspeedNXT dealership management system (DMS) to search Helmet House warehouse data within the Parts and Major Unit Locator modules of the DMS, according to a press release from ADP Lightspeed.
In June 2008, ADP Lightspeed released Parts and Major Unit Locator within the LightspeedNXT program, which allows dealers to post their inventory and search other dealers’ inventory within the LightspeedNXT network instantly. The locator had more than 6,500 individual part searches in April alone. With this integration, Helmet House warehouse data will now be automatically added to relevant searches.
“We view this alliance as a major benefit for our dealers,” Laurn Rice, general manager of ADP Lightspeed, said in the release. “During these challenging times dealers don’t have the luxury of stocking everything or letting customers walk out the door just because they don’t have what the customer wants on the shelf. It is even more important now to deliver unsurpassed customer service at the time of sale and the Helmet House integration will be a key tool in finding what the customer wants, when they want it.”
By adding Helmet House data to the locator’s database, dealers will now have the ability to view availability of Helmet House products in regional warehouses without having to leave the invoicing screen in LightspeedNXT. Stocking data is loaded into LightspeedNXT’s locator database daily, keeping the information updated.
