International. The award recognizes and encourages innovations that support, enhance, and advance aftermarket business processes.
The Technology Council (ATC) of the Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA) announced Dorman Products as the 2022 winner of the ATC Technology Innovation Award during the 2022 AASA Technology Conference. Michael Donofrio, director of digital expertise at Dorman Products, accepted the award.
Donofrio explained the live local inventory based on the company's website during the ATC fall meeting. Dorman's "Where to Buy" platform saves website users time and effort, as consumers typically need a part quickly and, in most cases, the same day.
Dorman worked closely with Epicor Software to develop, integrate and launch their local/live inventory application.
"We are excited about the quantity and quality of the award applicants, and were especially impressed with the finalists' submissions and the technologies presented," said Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems Sales Operations Director Marylou Hornung.
"Dorman's use of Epicor's technology to present live inventory that is available online is very impressive and highly deserving of this year's award."
