SAF-Holland has introduced its Aftermarket Parts on Demand (POD) electronic parts catalog.
“At SAF-Holland, we will see great benefits by providing our distributors with the right tools,” said Juan Hernandez, international marketing & sourcing manager. “POD is one of those tools – one of the most powerful tools to save our distributors time.”
Operating like a well-designed website, POD brings 15 years of sales data directly to the fingertips of distributors. Search features enable distributors to reach specific areas of the site with a few clicks of the mouse. They can easily answer customer parts-related questions in real time, without the need to make a phone call.
Distributors have full access to over 15,000 assembly numbers along with their respective component parts and exploded views. In addition, POD enables distributors to quickly and professionally provide valuable information to their customers in real time.
POD enables distributors to:
Find precise parts information
Check on pricing and availability
Download parts manuals
Acquire warranty information
Determine size and weight
Cross-referencing, if a part has been found to be obsolete or has been replaced with another part
A mobile version of POD will be available in the 2nd Quarter 2015.
“Four years ago, SAF-Holland made a commitment to service the needs of our aftermarket customers,” said Carl Mesker, vice president of SAF-Holland’s Aftermarket Business Unit. “POD is powerful initiative to grow the Aftermarket Business as a leader in aftermarket parts for suspension, fifth wheel, landing gear and coupling products.”
