Frontier Vehicle Dismantling is a complete stock control and invoicing system - it has been developed specifically for the vehicle dismantler with features that no other parts or dismantling system can offer. The latest version offers an industry first. You can now access manufacturer part numbers and prices directly in the desktop system. Each vehicle in the system once dismantled will show the manufacturer part numbers and prices against each of the dismantled parts.

When a customer requests a part, you can simply enter the registration number of the vehicle and quickly have all the part numbers available for searching all your stock. This allows for very accurate results, and secondly the ability to search across manufacturers and models that share common parts. For instance, an alternator might be common to a VW Golf and Seat Ibiza, now you will know and you can supply the correct part first time, every time - with confidence, and know the main dealer selling price to enable you to offer both the best value and not undervalue your vehicle parts. Data is supplied by Thatcham and covers about 80% of vehicles on the road in the UK.
Frontier Vehicle Dismantling is also your complete invoicing, parts, dismantling and customer database.

Quickly search for vehicles, parts and stock. Parts can be dismantled, on-car, damaged or deleted. Create requests, orders and invoices in a few clicks. Retain customer information for future orders, open credit accounts, create pro-forma invoices and set credit limits. Integration with receipt printers and cash-drawers allows for POS at your counter. Registration lookup quickly fills in vehicle details, finds parts and gives confidence to your customers. Postcode lookup quickly fills in buyers addresses. Send parts to ebay and your own website in just a few clicks, import sales from ebay and your website to automate the creation of invoices. Frontier Touch Screen Dismantling can inform your dismantlers in the yard of parts waiting to be dismantled and outstanding jobs. Frontier Touch Screen Packaging informs your despatch bay of parts waiting to be picked and waiting for despatch. Frontier Dashboard gives your yard supervisors a quick overview of outstanding jobs for dismantlers and packagers and allowing the creation of ad hoc jobs and reporting of time taken by each person.
