Global Motorsport Group Inc., parent of national distributors Custom Chrome and Motorcycle Stuff, is the first aftermarket distributor in the industry to become certified for the industry data exchange standard, now known as Partners Standard Protocol.
Custom Chrome and Motorcycle Stuff are now online with PSP, the collaborative industry effort to standardize data exchange between dealers and suppliers over the Internet, according to a news release. Dealers can do business with Custom Chrome, Motorcycle Stuff and other PSP certified suppliers directly from their dealer management system software.
Using PSP, Custom Chrome and Motorcycle Stuff dealers are now able to submit parts orders and perform pricing and stock checks from within any PSP-certified dealer management system. In addition, when placing orders or checking an order status, dealers no longer have to upload files to a Web site, or phone or fax the supplier.
“PSP offers our dealers a more streamlined and tightly integrated supply chain, achieving a new level of transactional efficiency. This will allow dealers to focus more resources on driving the profitability of their business,” said Tony Sartoris, chief information officer for Global Motorsport Group, in a news release.
A number of original equipment manufacturers, aftermarket distributors and dealer service providers are implementing PSP, including American Honda Motor Corp., Kawasaki Motors Corp. USA, American Suzuki Motor Corp., Helmet House, Southern Motorcycle Supply, ADP Lightspeed, c-Systems Software, Ideal Computer Systems and MIC Systems & Software Inc.
