What Businesses or Who Can Use Our Auto Parts Software?
Our auto parts store software helps make it easier to manage your business and simplify tasks for faster and more efficient results.
- Stock a wide and diverse range of auto parts and car accessories.
- Streamline inventory management, simplify ordering and replenishment processes.
- Make it easier for your customers to purchase the auto parts they need, or give them more options as you’ll have access to more suppliers.
Customers can choose between original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and aftermarket parts and order multiple parts. You can provide ordering access through our system or connect our system to your own.
Our inventory management software does much more than help you manage your parts inventory. Workshop Software contains a full suite of versatile features and integrations for streamlined and improved handling of business and its day-to-day operations.
Efficient Auto Parts Inventory Management System
Keeping track of brake pads, air filters, and some 30,000 parts that make a car—whether you have one in stock, in what brands or quantities, or how much—consists of myriad tasks best streamlined to save time and money.
See how can leverage Workshop Software as auto parts inventory management software:
- Stock management: Use our powerful Search to look up a product and get its important details—for example, quantity, which can be on hand, reserved, or available. Do automatic stock reorders, review purchase history, and more.
- Serial number tracking: Workshop Software has this feature that lets you track an item through its serial number. Once you’ve added the serial number, it’ll be easier to retrieve information about the related product, like whether it’s purchased or sold (find the relevant customer or supplier’s sales invoice). This feature is also useful for tracking products with warranties.
Ordering parts can also be easily accomplished with a few clicks or taps on the Workshop Platform through seamless integrations with auto parts platforms and databases.
Our software has a business intelligence system to keep you well informed about your business. All key information, including trends and highlights, is presented at a glance on the dashboard.
How many open jobs are there? Who is your biggest customer by revenue? Are your revenues increasing? What vehicles did you service? What products are selling well?
The product section is particularly useful and handy in inventory management. Discover the best-selling parts, getting as specific as their sales by year or quarter, and item codes. Go to “Inventory” to find each item’s availability, whether within the minimum quantity or requiring replenishment.
The software also lets you run reports organized into categories, like sales, productivity, stock, and transactions. These insights help tell you everything you need to know about your business and make strategic and informed decisions. Go deep with data or get a high-level overview— you can do both on the platform with all the graphs and details.
Being able to use the software with other services and solutions increases its value and expands its functionality. These integrations let you stay in one place or platform to perform the tasks needed to run the business smoothly.
Directly and seamlessly integrate our auto parts inventory software with these solutions:
- CARFAX specializes in vehicle history. Enter the plate number to pull information about a used car, including its VIN, service history, and last service dates as available.
- PartsTech is a search engine for finding and ordering parts from local suppliers. The integration with your PartsTech subscription allows you to see the live inventory of shops and import any items ordered back to Workshop Software.
- Parts Authority Web Warehouse has over 3 million auto parts in the catalog from 400 suppliers. This integration gives you access to the extensive catalog of a leading provider of auto parts in the U.S.
- Mitchell1 Prodemand aims to help automotive technicians diagnose and carry out vehicle repairs accurately. Linking your Prodemand subscription to Workshop Software gives you access to those solutions, labor times, and parts.

Accounting and marketing software can also be connected to Workshop Software. Available integrations vary by geographical location. Contact us for more information.
Versatile, One-Click Software Solution
Auto parts retailers find our software useful and versatile. It lets them get the job done without additional overhead costs.
Our workshop software offers barcode scanning and product expiration dates for online and in-store inventory management. At one glance, your sales staff can obtain the information they need by looking up the total number of an item your store has in stock. This data helps speed up order replenishments before the item goes out of stock or transfers from the warehouse or another store location.
Managing inventory definitely requires more than maintaining stock levels of car parts. Your auto parts store software must also make it easier to process and track purchase orders and stay on top of the business’s many moving parts.
Our Search is truly powerful. So does the one-click feature. Whether it’s customer invoicing or supplier stock orders, it all starts with one click.
Optimized for Mobile Users and Customers
Check parts order information, track items on their way or stock counts of car parts anytime, anywhere.
Employees can access the system from their phones or tablets and create work orders on the fly. No more filling out forms and handwriting orders. Enter customer details directly into your Management System. Generate customer invoices too. Mechanics can use the Workshop Software mobile app to log their time, complete inspections, etc.
On the other hand, customers can make bookings online. The process is simple: send them a link for a service reminder, and confirm the booking by setting the date and other details. An email will be sent to the customer once the booking is approved, and the appointment will be reflected in your booking diary.
Workshop Software has a portal where logged customers can see outstanding invoices, service due dates, and quotes.
Auto shop owners can reduce human error and improve customer relationships by automating many customer communication items. This includes setting up emails confirming customer orders or appointments, reminding them of scheduled maintenance visits, and thanking them for the business.
Easy to Use, Accessible Anywhere
Instead of packaging a program for local sale requiring installation to a specific computer, we offer it as software as a solution (SaaS). That saves you the time of local installation and money to buy additional licenses. That also means being able to access your workshop anytime, anywhere, and on any device.
We designed our software to be easy to use and are constantly improving it to enhance its user-friendliness. We’re adding upgrades to our customer portal and payments, among other improvements and enhancements.
WorkshopPay is designed for faster and more convenient payments. It provides customers with flexible payment options, like Buy Now Pay Later and payment online. Learn how to activate WorkshopPay here.
Pay for Only What You Need
We offer a unique price point for our software: You won’t pay for more than you need. No lock-in contracts too.
Our Gold plan is our most popular choice among clients, including auto parts businesses, as it contains all the features for an efficient and well-oiled workshop. This gives them access to an inventory management system that keeps track of auto parts stocks and e-commerce business options like point-of-sale transactions that let your customers buy from your store from your website or in-store.
Warehouse management for auto parts stores via integrations is also available. With an integrated system for auto shops and multiple warehouses, Workshop Software is an all-in-one automotive parts inventory management solution.
Workshop Software puts together multiple components to improve or complement your business operations. If you own an auto parts store or chain of stores and need to enhance supply chain management, look into those components. Auto parts retailers can manage inventory, orders, and customer information, maintain customer communication, and track sales.
