Work Truck Solutions, an authority on commercial vehicle configurations and business vehicle use cases, recently launched an updated upfitter software suite, plus released its 2023 upfitter product roadmap. Two years of drastically lower vehicle production has accelerated the focus on innovation in data reporting and online ordering. The updated upfitter suite includes five on-demand reports offering insight into inventory, on-lot movement, days-to-turn, leads by product (chassis and body types) and dealership statistics. In addition, the reporting helps upfitters locate bare trucks and van chassis, as well as compare their performance by categories to aggregated competitors.
And now, active body manufacturers are being featured on Work Truck Solutions dealers’ websites in CV Showroom, the smart digital catalog that helps buyers shop for any out-of-stock configuration they want to order.
Along with new data reporting and the integration of manufacturers' products into EZOrder and CV Showroom, Work Truck Solutions is also launching functionality for distributors and manufacturers on its national marketplace, Comvoy.com. All industry distributors and manufacturers will be listed on Comvoy and be searchable by name and zip code. Enhanced Comvoy listings will highlight manufacturer and distributor certifications, products, services and more.
“We are committed to connecting the entire supply chain - helping buyers understand the unique value of each upfit brand - and continuing to create efficiencies throughout the ecosystem,” said Kathryn Schifferle, founder and Chief Vision Officer of Work Truck Solutions. “As we move more and more of the transactional steps of buying a commercial vehicle online, demonstrated by our recent releases of online finance approval and online transport scheduling, we want to include and empower our upfit manufacturers and distributors, who are essential to this B2B value chain, to take advantage of both the marketing and operational benefits.”
At the National Truck Equipment Association Work Truck Week, Work Truck Solutions announced that, for 2023, it will provide the enhanced Comvoy listings, a $595 annual value, to all NTEA members at no charge.
