Epicor announced it has acquired JMO Business Systems Ltd., a provider of warehouse management systems (WMS), enterprise mobility solutions and related services for automotive aftermarket and original-equipment (OE) parts distributors.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

“The JMO acquisition extends Epicor’s industry-leading portfolio of business-growth solutions to virtually every functional area of the automotive parts and service industry,” Epicor said in a news release.  

Epicor offers an array of solutions and services for replacement parts manufacturers, program groups, distributors, retailers, jobbers, OE dealership groups and many types of vehicle repair businesses, including service chains, fleet maintenance shops, tire dealerships, oil-and-lube businesses and independent repair facilities.

“Automotive is a core business for Epicor, and JMO indago is the gold standard in WMS technology for parts businesses, whether they’re serving the aftermarket or OE service channel,” Epicor CEO Steve Murphy said. “This acquisition is a perfect fit for our automotive solution set and for the customers who depend on Epicor to help drive growth, efficiency and profitability.”

JMO indago WMS enhances users’ inventory management by increasing accuracy, reducing order cycle time, improving order fulfilment and providing real-time operational information through leading ERP systems, including the Epicor Vision, Epicor Eagle and Epicor Ultimate platforms, according to Epicor. The solution also helps reduce annual physical-inventory requirements through highly precise inventory control and real-time cycle counting.

“We are thrilled to join a company that has the vision, commitment and resources to contribute to the long-term success of businesses at every level of the parts and service industry,” JMO CEO John Oliveira said. “JMO indago is a perfect complement to Epicor’s impressive automotive portfolio, and together we can provide even greater value to growth-focused parts distribution businesses.”

Founded in 1988 as a software consultancy, JMO wrote its first WMS in 1996 as a custom project for a large automotive parts distributor. Based on the success of that product, the company developed indago WMS, which quickly became the predominant choice of aftermarket distributors throughout the U.S. and Canada.

      FleetPride announced that it has acquired the assets of Nationwide Truck Service of Louisville, Kentucky.
      Founded in 1989 and owned by Eric Adkins, Nationwide Truck Service offers a wide range of repair services from its 21-bay facility and mobile repair units in addition to 24/7 roadside support.
      The Service Center at 355 Farmington Ave. will team up with the existing FleetPride parts branch at 4670 Jennings Lane in Louisville, “creating a complete value proposition for customers,” according to FleetPride. Adkins and his son, Jake, will remain involved in the day-to-day operations.
      “This is an outstanding opportunity for our valued customers and our team,” said Adkins. “Our customers will appreciate the access to a nationwide network of parts and service, and our employees will have the ability to grow and advance in FleetPride’s new service organization.”
      “We are truly excited to welcome Eric and Jake Adkins and the entire Nationwide Truck Service team to the FleetPride family,” said Cory Anderson, general manager and vice president of service at FleetPride. “Over the past three decades, the Nationwide team has become one of the most trusted independent service providers, which customers have come to depend on, in Louisville.”
      “Growth through acquisitions remains a focus for our company,” said Mike Harris, senior vice president of sales and operations at FleetPride. “We believe our value proposition resonates with owners of parts and service companies who are seeking a succession plan, or a partner that can provide a long-term foundation for their employees and customers. We look forward to the partnership with the Nationwide Truck Service team to carry on their tradition of service excellence while expanding service capabilities to our existing customers including large regional and national fleets.”
      FleetPride continues to grow its national parts and service operations. If you are interested in learning more about how to become part of the FleetPride network, visit

      Continental has expanded its line of vehicle camera systems.
      Continental’s new Platform AHD (analog high-definition) camera systems are designed to enhance the driver’s view and improve fleet efficiency.
      Built to support drivers when navigating complex situations such as tight warehouse aisles, busy constructions sites or crowded shipping facilities, these camera systems provide vehicle operators with the extended visibility they need to get a better view of their surroundings and make their operations safer, according to the company.
      Continental’s AHD camera systems feature 2-megapixel cameras with high image clarity and infrared lights for enhanced night vision. The camera line includes rear-view and front- and side-view cameras. The displays work with both CVBS and AHD camera inputs. Video can be stored in a DVR for future driver analysis and training.
      Offered with 7-inch and 10.1-inch AHD displays, the AHD camera systems can integrate seamlessly with Continental ultrasonic sensors to deliver back up detection that warns the operator of obstacles behind the vehicle. The cameras feature IP 67 enclosures that are waterproof and dust-tight. The systems are available with dual voltage (12-volt and 24-volt) and offered in different cables sizes.
