Creating Your Catalog

At Vertical Development, creating accurate, accurate catalog data is the core of our business. Our catalog experts begin the process by getting to know your product line and business goals. A little bit of planning goes a long way toward developing a successful catalog strategy. With over 35 years of experience, we have seen it all.

Next, we’ll begin creating or cleaning your data files. Whether you are starting from scratch or have existing files, we can help. Our team will review and properly map your parts data to ensure your ACES and PIES files are accurate, reducing errors and eliminating the frustration of having your files rejected.

Managing Your Catalog

With your ACES and PIES files created, Vertical Development offers many great features which make managing your catalog easy!

Our software will help you to identify errors and omissions through comprehensive reporting features. For example, we integrate critical VIO data from both IHS/Polk and Experian to determine where there may be gaps in the data. This helps our customers to quickly identify errors and/or new product development opportunities to increase sales.

When it comes to delivering your data, you can trust our team has you covered. We can connect you with WHI, Epicor, Amazon, major retailers, and more.

Additionally, we can assist in creating private label catalogs, provide French and Spanish translation options for application data, and our custom attribute capabilities make ShowMeTheParts a perfect fit for the Medium/Heavy Duty and Powersport markets.

Enhancing Your Catalog

Taking your parts catalog to the next level is easy with the many enhancements you can make to ShowMeTheParts. One way to quickly differentiate your brand is through a custom-branded mobile app. This turn-key feature provides a distraction-free place for customers to find your products, fully branded with your logo & colors.

Other popular enhancements include our license plate search for fast and accurate fitment, as well as 360° imaging to help customers see every detail of each part. For manufacturers looking to break into emerging markets, you may want to consider translating your catalog into Spanish and French.

Finally, some of the best features are the ones you don’t notice such as mobile optimization. On ShowMeTheParts, we optimize your catalog to look great across all devices. This is essential as the world and web traffic go mobile.

Connect With Buyers

You’ll love how easy we make it easy to connect your parts catalog to the places buyers are actively searching for parts. Our new Shopify plugin has been a hit with manufacturers and resellers looking to build out their e-Commerce presence. Be sure to check out all of the details by visiting the Shopify Plugin page.

We also offer eCatalogs, mobile apps, catalog API integration as well as third-party marketplace integration (Amazon Storefront, Walmart Ebay, etc.). Put simply, if you need to get your parts data to a trading partner, we can help!
