Parts Town has acquired an inventory management software specialist in a deal that is set to make it significantly easier for catering technicians to source and replenish spare parts.
The takeover of 3Plenish provides the business with an innovative app that enables efficient management of parts inventory and replenishment for trucks used by field service-focused companies and other organizations that manage service technicians as well as parts stockrooms.
The acquisition follows the related acquisition of 3Wire Foodservice in mid-2018.
Mike O’Shea, senior vice president of IT and e-commerce, said: “Many of our partners continue to seek simple inventory management and replenishment solutions, and the 3Plenish technology is currently the best out there. We plan to take it to a whole new level.”
Parts Town will be working to formally rebrand and further enhance the existing 3Plenish capabilities, but the existing capability is available to customers who are looking for a solution quickly.
O’Shea states: “There are several successful implementations already that are adding value in the market, and a nice pipeline of opportunity.”
Parts Town is the largest global distributor of genuine OEM foodservice equipment parts.
