About OEC

Playing our part right from the start

Back in 2000, OEMs were facing a huge hurdle selling parts into dealerships, mechanical shops, and collision shops. Every transaction was handled manually, either by phone or fax, which left the market desperate for a faster, more efficient way to do business.

That’s when four major auto players – GM, Ford, Chrysler, and Bell & Howell (now Snap-on Business Solutions) – formed OEC. In 2001, we launched CollisionLink, the first e-commerce tool for shops to buy OE parts from dealership suppliers. Shortly afterwards, we launched D2DLink, connecting dealers nationwide and quickly elevating the OEC dealership base from 500 to 10,000. Over the years, we continued to develop and acquire key software solutions to better manage every aspect of maintenance and repair, including aftermarket parts.

Today, OEC is how everyone in the vehicle parts and repair lifecycle gets their job done more easily. Suppliers, repairers, manufacturers, insurers, and fleets all use our technology and data services to connect with each other and get vehicles back on the road safely. It’s why so many of the biggest names in the industry all rely on OEC. And it’s how, in just the past year alone, we’ve facilitated over $10B in North American e-commerce and over $30B in global trade. OEC | Now for the easy part
