Pinnacle and 1st Choice link up to benefit customers

1st Choice Spares
This link up should make it easier for the dismantler and give a better service to the customer which can only be good news.

Leading parts location service, 1st Choice Spares have been working hard to improve the service given to the customer. The latest news will enhance that service even more.


Pinnacle Pro Yard Management Software from Hollander, have partnered with 1st Choice Spares with the one aim, to benefit customers from both organisations. 1st Choice developers have developed a new web portal with a fresh new look which comes with full integration with Pinnacle’s yard’s inventory.

1st Choice’s website takes around 4000 enquires per day and generates parts sales in excess of £1.5 million per month. Hollander explained that they are always on the lookout to increase their customers’ channels to market, and this partnership was the ideal opportunity to align 1st Choice’s new web portal with Pinnacle Professional Software. Due for launch mid June, the system will be fully automated, displaying available stock and pricing for enquiries and creating the work order back in Pinnacle.

This is great for those who use both 1st Choice and Pinnacle as it offers 24/7 automated quotes with no more manual processing of requests, but what about those who aren’t Pinnacle users.

Nick Elia, 1st Choice’s CEO explained, “The latest developments in our system means everyone benefits. We have greatly improved the quality of membership to make sure that the customers receive a much improved service in both reliability and accuracy. That mean far less returns for the dismantler and happier, returning customers. I would recommend all our members to consider the added benefits they will receive by using Pinnacle Professional. Customers are buying 24 hours a day and this partnership allows the dismantler to operate 24 hours a day without any need to manually process requests”.

We will bring you the full story in June when the system goes live. In the meantime, to find out more, call 1st Choice on 0333 313 3320 or visit their website.

You can contact Hollander by email or call them 07715 068 491.
