BLUE BELL, Pa. — Users of MAM Software Group Inc.'s VAST Enterprise software now have access to Road Ready Wheels L.L.C.'s stock of 50,000-plus OEM replica wheels thanks to a new agreement between the companies.
Including Road Ready Wheels' data in MAM's VAST Commerce catalog "represents an excellent value proposition for our VAST customers," John Fischer, MAM's vice president, sales and marketing, said.
Chicago-based Road Ready Wheels (RRW) claims it can cut its customers' costs by 50% to 75% versus sourcing OEM wheels through the vehicle makers or their designated distributors.
RRW sources its wheel from a variety of international suppliers and distributes from its sole warehouse in Forest Park, Ill. It claims an average shipping time of 2.3 days.
RRW notes that all of its wheels meet quality standard promoted by U.S., European and Japanese standards organizations.
OEM replica wheels are defined as products that match the vehicle makers' original fitment wheels in appearance and performance standards but manufactured by third-party enterprises.
Road Ready's inventory of 50,000-plus wheels in stock covers 540-plus SKU fitment possibilities for more than 1,500 vehicle models. Users of MAM's VAST software can view Road Ready's inventory via their point-of-sale system.
Road Ready is in its sixth year of existence, having been spun out of Bill Smith's Auto Parts in 2014.
