Announcement from PartsEdge
PartsEdge, the industry’s leading parts sourcing and management software provider, announced their software has helped Hansel Automotive Group manage their parts inventory and stocking needs through the pandemic, labor shortages, and the chip crisis.
When Hansel Automotive first brought PartsEdge on in 2011, their parts and executive teams were struggling to understand the dynamics underlying parts sourcing, labor types, pricing, and demand. After a full analysis of Hansel’s stores, PartsEdge was able to set up a comprehensive program that delivered both the analytical information and the everyday know-how their team needed to be successful.
“I would say bringing in PartsEdge is probably the best decision we’ve ever made. It has allowed our parts teams to use both the follow up from their analytics to understand our parts business, inventory, aging, etc.,” said Mike Weldon, Director of Fixed Operations at Hansel Automotive Group. “Our managers then use this information to make adjustments on the fly. The team and software helps us stay market-sensitive when setting up our pricing matrixes. It’s just been a great relationship.”
With a turbulent last few years in automotive and a growing importance on the need for service and parts profit centers, PartsEdge provides the underlying information needed for Fixed Operations managers to make fact-based decisions. PartsEdge helps Parts Managers understand their DMS settings, optimize and monitor their sourcing and pricing matrixes for greater profitability, and create a plan to reduce obsolescence.
“It’s a great support mechanism that allows us to set up standards in the business for either existing Parts Managers or new ones coming into the role and help them understand what is going on in their department,” said Weldon “We get the PartsEdge reporting, we dig in, and it helps us understand where we stand in the market. They’re a key component of our parts strategy.”

PartsEdge is the brainchild of Chuck Hartle, a Fixed Operations Director and Cliff Cope, a DMS Specialist. Together they realized the DMS can and should do more to create the perfect inventory, but getting the DMS to work harder takes way more time than anyone had. With our monthly service, you can give your parts operation an invaluable tool that produces the most profitable parts inventory to service your customers at exceptionally high levels.
