PROFIT PRO DEBUTS VISION INTERNET-BASED ESTIMATING TOOL.

Profit Pro, Draper, Utah, a provider of software, information and ordering technology, has integrated the Technologue OEM database into its aftermarket electronic parts catalog, giving Profit Pro customers one source for both aftermarket and OEMinformation. The combined OEM/aftermarket database is available through Vision(TM), Profit Pro's new Windows Internet-based estimating tool. In addition to being an estimating tool with electronic parts cataloging and labor guides, Vision is an Internet browser and industry news source. Partnerships with companies like Technologue and others, as well as with aftermarket parts manufacturers, expand the benefits Vision users receive.

Said Brad Duncan, president & CEO of Profit Pro, "We are tremendously excited to introduce Vision to the aftermarket with the OEM data available soon. We anticipate that Vision will rapidly become the standard system used by service professionals for estimating, information, and ordering. Having the OEM data will enhance the ability of installers to locate and order parts quickly and accurately."

The OEM data is an important added value for Vision users. The alliance with Technologue means that Profit Pro can offer a combined OEM/aftermarket catalog with parts and pricing to its customers, marking the first time this choice has been offered to installers. Says Nicholas Porrini, President of Technologue, "With the integration of the OEM data, installers will have OEM parts and pricing available during a quote. If his aftermarket supplier doesn't have the part, the installer can quickly and easily quote the OE price and order the part from the OE dealer. This makes it easier for the installer to service his customer."

The Profit Pro Aftermarket Electronic Parts Catalog is comprised of the major aftermarket parts manufacturers covering production vehicles dating as far back as 1967 (for Volkswagens, back to 1960) and has been integrated by over 40 aftermarket software providers. With the inclusion of the OEM data, the Profit Pro catalog will be the information source for the industry.
