How the OPN and AIM integration works:
BEI Services process dealership data collected from the ERP system (e-Automate, OMD, NextGen, DDMS, plus many more) and identifies parts that may be overstocked or have not been used in defined time periods. This is reported in AIM to dealers as overstocked or obsolete parts. BEI then compares these parts against its WorldParts™ database to determine if these parts have usage by other dealers, and a high probability of being sold. If it is determined that these parts have a high enough probability of being sold, parts offers can be viewed in AIM. When the offer is accepted, the parts are then sent to OPN’s parts facility for proving and clearing, then OPN will send the dealer a check for their obsolete parts. AIM also allows dealers to view up to date suggestions of parts available through the OPN to purchase based on actual company usage.
