Advance Auto Parts, Tekmetric Launch Strategic Partnership

Tekmetric’s shop management software will be recommended as part of Advance Professional’s technology solutions.

Advance Auto Parts has announced an exclusive partnership with Tekmetric Shop Management System, the cloud-based shop management system for auto repair shops. The partnership will provide Advance Professional customers, Worldpac customers and TechNet-affiliated repair shops with an all-in-one shop management system to help efficiently manage daily business operations, improve customer experience and drive business results. The new partnership was announced recently at Worldpac’s Supplier & Training Expo in Orlando, Florida. The Advance Auto Parts enterprise includes Worldpac, Carquest and Autopart International. 

Tekmetric’s cloud-based platform is now the recommended shop management system in Advance’s robust suite of technology and business solutions available to Advance Professional customers and more than 15,000 TechNet-affiliated shops. AdvancePro’s online parts catalog is exclusively integrated into Tekmetric. Professional customers can now access the AdvancePro and Worldpac SpeedDial catalogs within Tekmetric as part of the tool’s seamless parts ordering and repair order workflow. 

During Worldpac’s Supplier & Training Expo (STX 2022) in Orlando, Advance Auto Parts announced an exclusive partnership with Tekmetric Shop Management System, the cloud-based shop management system for auto repair shops.

“This partnership with Tekmetric helps us empower Professional customers and TechNet members, giving them leading technology that drives business results,” said Bob Cushing, Advance’s executive vice president, Professional. “We strive to give our customers the best, whether it’s our industry-leading parts catalog and product brands, world-class training or modern technology solutions. Tekmetric was designed with shop owners and service writers in mind, to make their jobs easier and their businesses more profitable.”

Designed by a former shop owner, Tekmetric’s platform provides an easy-to-navigate workflow for the auto repair process and analyzes data in real-time to promote growth. Shop owners can access Tekmetric’s platform for all their business needs, from digital inspections and integrated payments to direct customer text messaging within the system – an industry first, the company states. 

“At Tekmetric, we strive to offer solutions that improve efficiency, provide accurate business metrics and allow shop owners to better serve their customers,” said Sunil Patel, co-CEO and co-founder of Tekmetric. “We are thrilled to work with Advance Auto Parts, a key partner that shares our values in providing effective technology solutions to support auto repair professionals as they grow their businesses.” 

Tekmetric completes Advance’s professional technology portfolio, joining the award-winning training from Carquest Technical Institute and Worldpac Training Institute (CTI+WTI), MotoLogic’s database of OEM repair and diagnostic content developed for technicians, MotoVisuals’ proprietary database of service and repair animations, MotoWeb’s website design and management services for shops and Mechanic Advisor’s shop marketing and reputation management services.
