APRA Introduces BUYREMAN Remanufacturing Marketplace
The Automotive Parts Remanufacturers Association (APRA) recently introduced the BUYREMAN Remanufacturing Marketplace. This valuable new online business tool will be available to all APRA members and others in the industry from a link on the APRA homepage (www.apra.org).
The BUYREMAN Remanufacturing Marketplace will feature a wide range of products and services exclusively for the automotive and truck parts remanufacturing industry that will support APRA's members and their customers in their purchasing decisions.
The BUYREMAN Remanufacturing Marketplace includes a Product Showcase, which enables APRA members to highlight the many products and services they have to offer. With front-page rotation of select products that link directly back to the company's website, this attribute will bring life to each product.
Within the BUYREMAN Remanufacturing Marketplace online searchers are able to easily locate products and services unique to the industry without the clutter of a general Internet search engine. Users have the option of performing keyword-driven searches, or a category-specific search. Both methods produce the most industry relevant results on the web.
The guide also includes Request for Information (RFI) functionality. This feature allows users to contact participating suppliers with a click of their mouse. With a downloadable desktop search application available, APRA members have the ability to search for items directly from a small search window on their desktops - making the search process as convenient and time-efficient as possible.
Along with the option to purchase a graphically robust company listing, direct website hyperlink and e-mail generation capacity, the guide allows supplier and remanufacturer companies to add videos to their listing. This feature gives marketplace users immediate access to video formatted information and promotions that will help them easily procure products and services specific to their industry needs.
APRA President, Bill Gager, stated, “Our BUYREMAN Remanufacturing Marketplace will really help people in our industry increase their sales and services to their customers. We are looking forward to the marketplace being a great addition to our membership benefits and services.”
APRA partnered with MultiView, Inc., an Irving, Texas-based publisher of electronic buyer and supplier guides, to develop the BUYREMAN Remanufacturing Marketplace. “For the first time, members will have access to specialized products and services through the industry’s leading resource,” said Dan Maitland, MultiView President. "Cutting through the clutter of multiple search engines and finding exactly what you are looking for, all at the same time, is a wonderful benefit to each and every APRA member."
