Direct Communications, Inc. (DCi) a leading provider of automotive aftermarket product data and enhanced web content, formed a strategic alliance with WebLink Solutions Corporation. With this new alliance, retailers, jobbers and warehouse distributors selling auto parts on the Activant® Automotive System can have turnkey online stores giving them a one-stop solution to sell over 5 million automotive performance parts, accessories or replacement part numbers on the Internet.
WebLink Solutions delivers turnkey ecommerce solutions for business-to-business and consumer eStores and this alliance allows their customers to extend their online offerings by adding automotive performance parts and accessories from DCi.
WebLink Solutions acts as a gateway for jobbers and WDs using the Activant Automotive System, with access to 2,900 replacement parts manufacturers with over 4 million part numbers.
