BARCELONA, Spain and AGUASCALIENTES, Mexico, Oct. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Rolcar, a leading company in the auto parts sales market in Mexico, adopts Openbravo technology to achieve better control and visibility of its retail operations.
Founded in 1961 by Mr. Rogelio López, the company currently operates more than 175 auto parts and repair shops and 10 distribution centers. With 2,200 employees and 60,000 products on offer to its customers, the company required a new solution that would allow them to be faster, more efficient and more competitive. The new solution is based on Openbravo technology and deployed in the cloud with Openbravo Cloud. It has allowed Rolcar to integrate all its front-end and back-office processes in each of the branches and at headquarters, leading to an increase in operational efficiency thanks to greater visibility and improved end-to-end control of its operations.
“Openbravo has allowed us to have a better understanding of the sales behavior of our products and customers, as well as improving the inventory processes for our auto parts and service centers. The above combination has helped us to be more competitive in our market,” explains Victor Manuel López, President and General Director of Administration and Finance for Rolcar.
