BreakerLink Partners with BreakerPro

Let the software do the walking! BreakerPro users can now automatically handle BreakerLink requests

BreakerLink has announced a collaboration with BreakerPro, allowing stock inventory integration which should improve supplier quote times and responses.

This move will instantly allow all current users of BreakerPro to access request for parts from BreakerLink, potentially opening them to new and increased streams of revenue and dramatically reducing the time breakers must allocate to the quoting process.

BreakerLink’s MD,, Justin Smith has this to say about BreakerPro; “Essentially the software functions as a stock system. Breakers upload their inventory and then when they download our latest requests, if they have the part in stock, the automated software alerts that a quote is to be sent to the customer. The breaker does not have to worry about quoting on time as the whole process is now automated.”

Currently BreakerPro already offers integration with other online sales platforms including eBay, VivaStreet.com and Google as well as other market specific portals.

This new collaboration means that second hand parts sellers should be able to sell more stock through BreakerLink with lower overheads for manpower and resources, who at the same time will be able to fulfil more end user requests.

Some of the functionality of the new system includes an easy update interface with the facility to add part numbers and photos, which allows access both via desktop and laptop, greatly reducing the amount of time needed for dismantlers to operate an effective online arm to their business.

With additional functionality for breakers and an increased trove of information for customers, the system should help BreakerLink offer an improved service both for clients and their final end buyers.
