No. The process is designed to be as smooth as possible. Snap-on EPC 5 will be immediately usable by those familiar with electronic parts catalogs, and is easily learned by new parts counter associates.
About EPC 5 for Ford
Snap-on conducted extensive user research with Ford dealers across the U.S. in preparing EPC 5 for the market. Based on that research, we've developed several features that will give a critical edge to Ford dealers and their parts departments.
Quit clicking. Start searching.
With OneSearch, EPC 5 gives you a single search box that lets you find whatever you need in any catalog. We're eliminating the need for custom catalogs or vehicle index filters. Just type whatever you know, and we’ll find your answer.
A real user interface for real Ford users.
In designing EPC 5, we've questioned all the old assumptions and made things work the way they should work today, not just the way they worked twenty years ago. Our goal is to provide a catalog that presents Ford data in a way that makes sense to you, based on real feedback from real users.
Ford Data. Snap-on Polish.
Why work so hard to polish the data? So you can find parts fast.
Snap-on invests serious engineering resources to improve parts data. We introduce additional data indexing for flexible searching. Enhanced filtering of the most challenging areas of the catalog, like calibration and axle parts lists, eases parts specification. When users point out data issues through the feedback feature, we correct the problems and let you know when they've been fixed. We've got a long-standing partnership with Ford and the parts technical team that helps us improve data constantly.
All the benefits of the cloud. None of the risks.
Latest data and rock-solid performance. Deployment that matches your business.
Only Snap-on offers a single EPC that can run both on the web and/or locally from DVD—with both products getting consistent weekly data updates, so your parts department never falls behind the competition.
