Sime Darby Motors partners with Syncron to Accelerate the Digitalization of its Automotive Spare Parts Processes
Increased parts availability, fill rates, and inventory control enable leading Malaysian auto distributor to exceed customer expectations while advancing its aftermarket business
June 14, 2022 – Malaysia – Sime Darby Motors Malaysia has teamed up with Syncron to optimize service parts inventory and accelerate the digitalization of spare parts processes for its Ford and Hyundai branches.

“When we set out to find a new inventory partner, we looked for a powerful solution that can help us navigate today’s complex supply chain landscape,” said Alan Scott Gascoyne, Head of Aftersales for Retail and Distribution at Sime Darby Motors Malaysia. “Syncron stood out for its depth of stock visibility, real-time insights, and intelligent AI-powered recommendations that identify opportunities for us to adjust inventory levels and improve spend. In short, Syncron Inventory empowers our teams to deliver the highest service levels with the lowest possible inventory.”
Sime Darby Motors Malaysia also selected Syncron Inventory for its proven success in:
- Increasing revenue through better fill rates
- Reducing costs by eliminating excess stock and reducing rush orders
- Improving customer satisfaction ratings by delivering a better customer experience with increased parts availability
