The pace of change continues to accelerate in our industry
Lombard, IL (PRWEB) July 7, 2009
The internet has affected virtually every business and every industry by now. Small order distribution is a segment that is very "web-friendly," whether it is electronic components, industrial supplies, or office supplies. One segment of distribution that has taken to the web more recently is the purchase of restaurant equipment parts. Restaurants are in constant need of replacement parts for their equipment, including fryer parts and ice machine parts. The internet has made these parts more accessible than ever and restaurant operators, food equipment service companies, and corporate chains are relying on the internet at an accelerating pace.
One web-site that has taken a leadership role in restaurant parts is http://www.partstown.com. Chicago-area based Parts Town is a leader in the distribution of genuine OEM restaurant equipment parts and has developed a unique web-site that enables users to view real-time inventory, detailed images of parts, technical documents, and much more. The industry is now able to access fryer parts, ice machine parts, and other required parts easier and faster. Additionally, users are able to track their shipments on-line and view their account history.
Parts Town has taken web development to another level in developing custom web-sites for many of the major restaurant chains in North America. Parts Town develops the sites specific to the needs of each customer, displaying only the restaurant equipment parts utilized by the specific customer partner. As chains look to improve their supply chain, simplify, drive consistency, and reduce costs, custom web-development has become very important.
"The pace of change continues to accelerate in our industry," states Emanuela Franzone, Director of E-Commerce for Parts Town. "Customers are demanding on-line access to restaurant equipment parts and manufacturers are looking to compete more effectively against the growing generic parts threat. Parts Town is committed to being at the forefront of serving both customers and manufacturers as the market continues to change."
