Information technology (IT) is the last great source of differentiation between aftermarket businesses. Those who master IT will command a clear advantage over those who don't. Technology-enabled solutions will separate the best busineesses from the rest and the fast from the slow of the industry.

AAIA has taken a leadership role in developing standards and best practices in e-commerce and technology to help lower the cost of doing business and increase efficiencies in the aftermarket value chain. Through the leadership of the AAIA Technology Standards Committee, the association has developed tools and practices that have come to be recognized as Industry Standard.

Standards developed specifically for the aftermarket industry speed the adoption of technology and lower the cost of integration. AAIA serves as a neutral facilitator allowing competitors and trading partners from all industry segments to collaborate on solutions that benefit the entire aftermarket.
