Vipar Heavy Duty has partnered with technology provider AutoPower to provide a warehouse management system designed to automate operational functions, reduce IT costs and increase the ability for multiple branch locations to be connected in real time. Vipar says the technology uses AutoPower’s business system software platform, which uses remote servers that enhance connectivity and automate accounting and inventory management for distributors.

“The core business of our stockholders is selling parts,” says Steve Crowley, president of Crystal Lake, Ill.-based Vipar. “Our innovative technology solutions are all focused on enhancing their ability to most efficiently get the right part to their customers. We are pleased that seven of our stockholders have adopted the hosted solution among their 27 locations. We expect the adoption rate for this innovative solution will continue to accelerate as distributors seek to change their often costly business systems.”
