ProDemand Update: Part Number Search

What’s new in the current release?

1Search Plus Parts Search:  ProDemand has added the ability to search using the OEM part number in the 1Search Plus module. This feature gives the service writer or technician an option to start a repair information lookup beginning with the part number.

Figure 1: Search for part numbers in the 1Search Plus module.

In the search field, you will now see a new option for Part # (see above). You can select to search the traditional way, via code, component or symptom; or by part number. When searching by part number, enter the part number with or without the spaces and hyphens; 1Search Plus will account for what you have typed. The type-ahead feature is also activated for the search lookup, so it’s likely you’ll just have to enter a few characters without entering the entire part number.

Figure 2: 1Search Plus results return a list of components, which then navigate to the 1Search Plus cards

Once the OEM part number is entered, 1Search Plus will return all information related to that part for the selected vehicle, allowing technicians to quickly complete the diagnosis and repair.
