Following extensive development work integrating Pinnacle into Ford’s own systems, Pinnacle now offers DMS integration compliant with Ford dealer standards.
This integration means that Pinnacle now provides many ways for Ford dealers to streamline processes and reduce cost, including:
Parts Franchise File
Containing all current Ford franchise parts held on file, the parts franchise file integrates fully into Pinnacle which streamlines the process of quotation and invoice creation by pulling in manufacturer part numbers, purchase codes, sales codes, part descriptions, cost and recommended retail prices without the need for manual re-keying.
Parts Price Updates
Automatic parts price updates ensure that parts prices are consistently updated and made available to Ford Pinnacle users either monthly or when required without the need for loading price tapes.
Parts Stock Order Transmission
Pinnacle allows parts stock orders to be transmitted automatically to Ford PANDA, improving efficiency and accuracy of the order process as well as reducing dealership workload.
Parts Stock Locator
Pinnacle allows parts stock locator to be transmitted automatically to Ford PANDA, efficiently informing the manufacturer on the quantity of parts are held on hand. This improves the manufacturer’s ability to pre-empt the demand for parts and ensure pro-active warehouse management of parts.
eReact Feed – Over the Counter Sales
Pinnacle allows for parts Over The Counter sales to be submitted to Ford’s UDB database automatically on a daily basis allowing for demand for over the counter parts sales to be analysed by the manufacturer.
eReact Feed – Repair Order Submission

eReact Feed – Vehicles Sales
