BRP Signs with ADP Lightspeed to Provide Parts Locator to North American Dealers

VALCOURT, QC – January 13, 2012 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – BRP signed an agreement with ADP Lightspeed to provide BRP dealers the opportunity to post their inventory and consult BRP’s inventory as well as other participating dealers. Since December 1, 2011, all BRP dealers using Lightspeed NXT as their Dealer Management Systems (DMS) are able to use the Parts Locator, a function offered in the DMS.

This is a clear step towards creating a global network that will optimize turns on inventory while reducing lost sales due to out-of-stock items. To kick-off the deployment, ADP Lightspeed and BRP have agreed to subsidize the Parts Locator’s fee until December 2012. For dealers not using ADP Lightspeed, the Parts Locator will be available through BRP’s dealer portal; BOSSWeb™.

“Developing dealer to dealer communication on parts, accessories and riding gear (PAC) will improve product availability and reduce consumers’ down time, while leveraging our network’s inventory,” said Sandy Scullion, vice-president, PAC and Global Distribution at BRP. “BRP is committed to building the best dealer value proposition in the industry, and the technology ADP Lightspeed brings will further improve on our service promise.”

“We are excited to be part of BRP’s initiative to reinvent the way dealers work with the OEM,” said Greg Smith, General Manager at ADP Lightspeed. “The Parts Locator is the first step in connecting the OEM’s large North American dealer network to each other and the OEM itself. We look forward to working with BRP to continue to create technology solutions that benefit their large dealer body.”
