APN’s AutoVend® software powers the electronic product ordering experience The Unified Catalog – Automotive Industry AAIA / ACES / PIES Compliant – Online electronic catalog – allows Consumers and Dealers to accurately look up, view and purchase auto parts, accessories, tires and wheels electronically The E-Commerce System – Orders can be fulfilled automatically from the Unified Catalog to a choice of multiple manufactures direct and fee based warehouse drop ship vendors - allowing for a complete list of product brand parts in the catalog
  3. 3. APN – Vision • To revolutionize the Automotive Service Industry by providing innovative IT services • To capitalize on an untapped market opportunity, while providing huge value to our dealers and their customers • To be the leader in B2B2C product distribution through unique patented technology provided to service dealers to help grow their businesses • To align ourselves with the service industry and further develop industry programs through technologies and create mutual incremental revenue streams
  4. 4. Opportunities Identify Opportunities By: • Providing software solutions backed by integrated distribution that no other IT company provides • Intergrading with non-competitive third party IT companies and accessing their customer base • Carving out niche market opportunities through relationships and extensive knowledge of the Automotive Industry

  7. 7. The APN Program • The Problem: Disconnect between the online world and brick and mortar world resulting in: – Lack of an automated solution to have parts installed by professionals – Lack of communication between online users and dealers – Loss service dealers sales due to not being able to offer products locally that are in the online catalog • The Solution: Offer services that allow online consumers and brick and mortar stores to communicate seamlessly and connect with one another.
