Internet Parts Ordering - or IPO - is the aftermarket industry standard API for real-time Drop Ship and Special Order inquiries and order transactions. IPO can extend your supply chain to all of your virtual inventory suppliers and allow you to say "yes" to capture more sales.
Some suppliers support integration of VIC with their ERP systems and communicate through the Internet Parts Ordering (IPO) protocol. This ensures that quote responses are specific to the customer and delivered in real-time. IPO also allows buyers to integrate VIC with their catalog or POS system – eliminating the need for a separate portal
