Online shopping platforms come with many virtual tools you can use to expertly manage your orders. For example, when you buy equipment parts online using Parts.Cat.Com, you'll receive a series of emails with shipping updates that you can use to track your order, keep tabs on its whereabouts and see when you can expect it to arrive for pickup.

6. Accurate Pricing

If you're unsure about product pricing, you can go online and easily locate up-to-date prices for all the parts you need. In addition to delivering pricing updates, PCC's online catalog also displays part availability statuses, so you'll know what's available and what isn't.

7. Fast Turnarounds

If you'd like to speak with a representative during your online shopping experience, you can get in touch with a friendly and knowledgeable parts specialist by calling the Parts Remote Assistance number. These skilled professionals can help you look up parts, learn your warranty options or find a location near you for parts pickup.

10. Simple Search

Finding the parts you need is easy in the PCC electronic parts book (SIS), as this feature includes pictures and diagrams that accurately depict each component. You can also search using the 30 available categories or enter keywords, serial numbers or part numbers.

11. Customer Authority Manager

You can use PCC's customer authority manager feature to manage your orders internally before sending them to Empire, eliminating several manual steps. When you add your parts to the shopping cart and click “submit order,” your order will travel to the purchasing manager, who will accept and place the order for you.

12. Bulk Order Spreadsheets

Instead of manually creating spreadsheets for bulk orders, PCC allows you to download a digital spreadsheet in an XLS or CSV format. You can then upload your spreadsheet to order without having to manually enter your list of needed parts.

13. Self-Service Options

Parts.Cat.Com offers Self-Service Options (SSO), which are packaged solutions that equip you with all the parts you need to perform equipment maintenance or repairs yourself instead of scheduling services.
