Title: Optimizing the Parts Supply Chain
Speaker: Paul Gange, Advantage Parts Solutions
Every aspect of the collision repair industry has experienced disruption, innovation, automation, and consolidation. The one initiative missing from truly advancing our industry to new heights is optimization. Because every industry stakeholder has a level of “waste” built into their processes, our global ability to unearth leakage limits our ability to optimize, specifically, the parts supply chain. In this keynote, Advantage Parts Solutions’ President of North America Paul Gange suggests a new vision that would allow the industry the ability to truly work towards optimization for the absolute benefit of everyone, including, most importantly, the vehicle owner.
Resulting from this presentation, the audience will gain an appreciation of the many “break points” from the various processes of ordering parts as part of the broader collision repair process. Specifically, each segment of the industry will have a better understanding of how they can participate in the optimization process and how they can be a better industry steward of helping improve the overall repair process for the ultimate benefit of vehicle owners.

– Evolution of WIN and key learning throughout the pandemic
