There are a few reports that we would suggest the Parts Manager to run on a regular basis


This will give you a start and then you can work out what other reports you need to run as well


All these reports can be generated through Blackpurl Header > Reporting > Reports - Common Search


All reports are setup with specific parameters and columns that match that particular report but the user can amend these parameters and columns etc as required


Please review this article - Reporting Tips - Totals / Changing Columns / Changing Parameters / Exporting Search Results 


Parts Needed

  • This report should be run on a daily basis by the user that places the Dealership's Vendor Orders
  • It will show you the parts that are required to be ordered to meet Special Orders

  • The user would review the report and then decide if they need to place any Vendor Orders
  • As you can see from the report generated above, it lists the Vendor / Quantity / Customer / Customer Order Number and Created date


Parts Valuation

  • If your Dealership requires you to keep an eye on the Parts Valuation, then this is the report for you
  • It is recommended that you run this report at least once a month - at the close of business of end of month or before open for business on the first day of the month and export the file
