Aftermarket Business Platform - B2C and eCommerce

Signifikant launches the next generation of its Aftermarket Business Solution. The new release includes an improved user interface, personal­ization functionalities for eCommerce sup­port and many new integrations and plug-ins to import and export systems. With this version, it is now much easier for editors to publish catalogues while at the same time, enabling businesses to sell parts through a modern, almost B2C-like web store.


Now more than ever, it is as important to provide relevant buyer-specific information to help customers find the right product. The expectations that users bring with them from their B2C shopping experienc­es must be met. And that is why, today, personalization is a key element in designing an eCommerce solution. The latest version of the robust aftermarket platform has been improved to cater to this new buyer’s expectations, tailored for the needs of the aftermarket.


Relevant search results, lesser number of clicks, saved payments, no overload of information – these are just a few of the expectations of today’s online buyer. As a seller, it is as important to provide relevant buyer-specific information as it is to help customers find the right product. Personalization is a key element in designing an eCommerce solution. Typically, a well-implemented personalization strategy can increase customer experience, customer retention, loyalty to your business, and revenue. 


eCommerce & webshop functionalities

Cross Sales and Statistics

Use cross-sales and up-sales strategies for your spare part business. Cross-sales and up-sales will differ a bit compared to product sales. What others have shown interest in will not be relevant, and algorithms presenting offerings based on statistics can turn out to be misleading. Instead, it must be based on the experience of a spare part team and tailored to the specific product. When a customer orders a spare part for a product, an accessory that fits that product may be relevant. Suggesting additional spare parts that may be wearing down could give great value to the user

  • Products, parts, and kits can be presented based on sales statistics


  • Sales statistics per product, customer, user


  • Present cross-sale parts on products, accessories, and parts


  •  Accessories showcased on the order page

User Experience and Design Aspects

Good look and feel, easy navigation, and responsiveness rank high up on customers’ expectations for any kind of online portals.

At the same time, navigation needs to be simple, follow best practices, and make it easy for the user to find parts and products in as few clicks as possible. And lastly, a responsive website that can be viewed on any browsing device is equally important in keeping customers and improving engagement.
