Ft. Wright, KY – October 16, 2013 – Car-Part.com announces several enhancements to Car-Part Pro, its parts marketplace for professional repairers and insurers.

Car-Part Pro and Car-Part Messaging combine to read and modify estimates using the CIECA EMS standard (including Mitchell, CCC, and Audatex estimates). This simplifies the workflow for sourcing parts directly from estimates. Insurers and repairers can also use Car-Part Messaging to facilitate real time communication with 3,000 part sellers.

All repairers on Car-Part Pro gain access to part ordering capability. The "Order Part" button automatically performs a real time part availability check with supported inventory systems.

Car-Part Pro's new Seller Order Manager helps part sellers manage online orders with an easy-to-use web interface and real time order notifications via Car-Part Messaging.

The Car-Part Pro marketplace includes parts from 4,900 recycled, aftermarket, and discount OE part sellers. Repairers and insurers can specify delivery times required to meet cycle time goals and receive real time delivery information from part sellers and 3,900 additional supply chain partners. This combination provides the most robust alternative parts results available in the collision industry.

Repairers and insurers can create custom profiles to see only results that meet their designated supplier service level and part criteria. Car-Part.com currently certifies 900 part providers who have committed to SLAs. Part filtering capabilities include ARA part grading, aftermarket certifications (CAPA and NSF), and aftermarket validations (Diamond Standard, Parts Plus, and Platinum Parts).

"We are pleased to provide highly-customized results in one to two seconds, greatly simplifying alternative part selection and procurement" said Jeff Schroder, CEO of Car-Part.com.

In 1998, Car-Part.com launched the first recycled parts marketplace on the web. Car-Part.com offers a full suite of management tools for auto recyclers. Car-Part.com and Car-Part Pro (www.CarPartPro.com) now serve over 16,000 professional repairers, and 2.9 billion dollars in part searches per month.
