SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA - Shop-Ware, the industry-leading shop management system with an end-to-end digital customer experience, has announced an eCommerce integration with Parts Authority, a premier national distributor of automotive replacement parts, tools, equipment, and transmissions.
This integration allows shops that source parts from Parts Authority and IMC to purchase directly through the Shop-Ware platform. Users can access “Web Warehouse,” their award-winning catalog consisting of over 3 million parts, covering more than 125 million applications, and 250+ locations for delivery.

Looking forward to bringing Parts Authority’s extensive inventory right to the shops.”
"Shop-Ware’s Parts Authority integration saves our shop time,” says Jonathan D'Avirro, Owner of Mahwah Automotive Center. “We used to have to use another site to look up parts, but now with the direct integration, we can go directly to Parts Authority, which is great.”
Shop-Ware users can now order parts from Parts Authority via the inventory page or a repair order. Within Parts Authority, users can select favorite brands and customize the vehicle make list to make searching even faster.
