No matter what industry you participate in, be it automotive or anything else, speed of your products to the marketplace is paramount. In the automotive aftermarket, it can take weeks or even months to get from the cataloging phase of your business to the point where your new products are finally available for sale to repair shops and installers. This delay causes those all important sales to either be put off for at least a full quarter of business, or worse, go to a competitor.
Your challenges are many. Product development, product management and catalog management all become factors in determining your market agility.
