Epicor Software Corporation is adding two new features to the Epicor Integrated Service Estimator (ISE) solution. The optional new features include license plate-to-VIN application decoding and integration of the Epicor PartExpert GFX graphical eCatalog.
Epicor ISE provides all of the necessary information to identify, price and order replacement parts and enables users to generate fast, accurate repair estimates without relying on the telephone or opening another browser window, the company says. The ISE solution is powered by the Epicor PartExpert replacement parts database and includes repair and maintenance packages, aftermarket flat-rate labor guide, OEM-recommended vehicle service intervals information, cross-reference parts database and more.
The new ISE features are designed to help users accelerate the job estimating process and increase related service opportunities. The new plate-to-VIN feature helps eliminate one step in the vehicle intake process, automatically populating the estimate with extensive application details. The Epicor PartExpert GFX eCatalog interface, featuring vehicle system diagrams embedded with product intelligence, helps users identify all parts needed for hundreds of repairs. The GFX interface also is available for use with other Epicor solutions, including Epicor Eagle for the Aftermarket and Epicor Vision business management systems.
Epicor also is adding a comprehensive video library to the ISE solution to help new users learn how to streamline the estimating and sourcing process.
