Mazda Canada Taps OEConnection to Manage Its Parts Supply Chain

OEConnection, a leader in the online procurement and analysis of original equipment (OE) replacement parts, will serve as the preferred parts technology provider for Mazda Canada. It will provide the automaker with integrated web-based solutions to help create a virtual in-circulation parts warehouse. It will connect each segment in the importer's replacement parts supply chain, including Mazda Canada's network of 163 independently owned and franchised new vehicle dealerships, its parts distribution centers, and Mazda Canada corporate parts operation.

OEConnection says Mazda Canada selected it for its ability to provide franchisees with faster, more timely online sourcing of original equipment replacement parts; availability of dealer tools to build and maintain a more marketable inventory mix and reduce costly investments in idle, slow-moving parts; and the ability to enhance customer service responsiveness by expediting dealer fulfillment of emergency back-ordered parts.

In addition, OEConnection will provide online parts intelligence and analysis solutions for near real-time in-channel visibility to aid corporate and regional parts decision-makers with more efficient service parts management, more cost-effective product lifecycle planning, and enhanced execution of market-responsive promotions.
