SAN DIEGO — Today, i3 Brands announced an integration deal that will have its PartProtection system, a point-of-sale platform that allows car dealers to offer service contracts on OEM parts, integrated into Snap-On Business Solution's electronic parts catalog.

The integration will allow for seamless look-up and immediate identification of extended warranty or service contract opportunities. Franchise dealerships and other OEM customers will then be able to provide consumers with an additional two years of coverage beyond manufacturer warranties with unlimited miles, the company added.

"We are thrilled to work with i3 Brands on this new endeavor," said David Foutz, vice president of sales and marketing at SBS. "This integration will provide our OEM dealership customers with unprecedented access to coverage and extended service contracts on all eligible OEM parts and service. In addition to opening up new revenue streams for dealerships, this will improve customer retention and deliver real value to consumers. By working together, SBS and i3 Brands can help dealers extend these offerings to parts wholesale customers as well."

According to i3 Brands, PartProtection is not only exclusive to car dealers selling OEM parts, it is also has a certified interface with leading dealer management systems.
