ShowMeTheParts, a division of Vertical Development Inc., recently collaborated with AP Exhaust Technologies Inc. to power its new mobile app. According to the companies, the new AP Exhaust app, available for both iPhone and Android devices, makes it easier to find the correct part for one of the most strictly regulated components on cars today — catalytic converters. The AP Exhaust app zeros in on the proper converter using information from the VIN, either by scanning a barcode or by entering the vehicle’s license plate number.
AP Exhaust’s mobile app couples regular updates from the ShowMeTheParts database with the accuracy of VIN and license plate lookups to allow shops to feel confident that they are installing the correct converter.
“AP Exhaust is thrilled to announce the launch of our new mobile app, powered by Vertical Development’s ShowMeTheParts. Mechanics will find the license plate lookup feature most useful, since they will know the correct replacement parts for a vehicle upon the customer’s arrival or even when taking an appointment over the phone,” said Gary Nix, director of marketing for AP Exhaust Technologies.
“Utilizing the ShowMeTheParts database and search functionality, the AP Exhaust app matches a license plate number with the correct VIN. The result is a list of compatible parts from all of AP’s lines, from ANSA and AP stock solutions to XLERATOR and Silverline performance exhausts,” he concluded.
“AP Exhaust adds items and interchanges to its lines regularly and releases a series of bulletins every month or two. With a traditional catalog, that would mean mechanics and parts professionals would need to cross-reference dozens of bulletins with the yearly paper catalog to find a match. With the ShowMeTheParts mobile integration, AP can add entries as soon as products are released, so users will always have up-to-date information when looking up catalytic converters using the new AP mobile app,” said Jay Wright, president of Vertical Development, parent company of ShowMeTheParts.
“Vertical Development strives to be on the cutting edge of technology. We believe that utilizing the newest tech enables us to accomplish our mission of breaking down any roadblocks that exist between our users and the most current, correct data in the Aftermarket,” said Wright.
