Five Things Catalog Managers Love About Vertical Development, Inc.

Company News

When it comes time to choose a partner for your auto parts catalog and part lookup (fitment) solutions, you want a company that understands your needs and goes above and beyond to meet them. At Vertical Development, Inc., we pride ourselves on delivering exceptional service and solutions tailored to your specific requirements.

Choosing the right partner can significantly impact your business operations. Here’s why our customers consistently choose Vertical Development, Inc.:

1. Personal Service

Direct Support from Parts Catalog Experts

We know how frustrating it can be for customers to struggle when updating their auto parts catalog or exporting to ACES/PIES XML formats for a trading partner. The last thing you want when dealing with these issues is to receive an automated answering service, a canned email response, or a ticketing support number.

At Vertical Development, you won’t encounter any of these annoyances. When you reach out to us, you speak directly with a knowledgeable team member who understands your challenges and can offer immediate, practical solutions.

This attention to personal service has been part of our DNA for 39 years and continues to be a cornerstone of our offering. If you feel like just another number or support ticket with your current provider, reach out to our team. We’re confident that you will instantly see the difference.

2. Extensive Experience

Parts Cataloging Solutions Backed by Decades of Expertise

While reaching a live customer service team member is great, we also understand the importance of solving problems quickly and completely. This is where our deep industry knowledge comes into play.

Put simply, there’s nothing you can throw at our team that will surprise us! Over the years, we’ve built the tools and gained the experience to help our clients see the forest through the trees. Our team has extensive experience assisting customers across a wide range of industries, including automotive aftermarket, light-duty truck, heavy-duty truck, powersports, and agricultural sectors. This breadth of experience means that if you have a parts cataloging or fitment challenge, we’ve encountered it before and know how to solve it.

For instance, we’ve helped a manufacturer of heavy-duty parts sell more by implementing attribute lookup functionality. This feature provides their customers with a new and helpful way to find parts that fit their application.

Additionally, our team’s expertise in creating ACES & PIES XML format files and proficiency in ACES and PIES mapping ensures that your data is not only accurate but also compatible with industry standards. This expertise helps you avoid the common pitfalls and delays associated with catalog management, saving you time and reducing headaches.

When you work with Vertical Development, you’re not just getting a service provider; you’re gaining a parts catalog partner.
