RICHFIELD, Ohio, Aug. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- ProQuest Business Solutions, the
innovator and market leader in electronic parts catalog systems, has announced
that it has entered into a new parts data access agreement with Ford Motor
Company. The agreement extends the relationship through 2012. This agreement
affirms the strong relationship that ProQuest has with Ford and ensures that
ProQuest EPC customers will continue to receive accurate and timely data.
This agreement continues an alliance that ProQuest and Ford began over 10
years ago to provide critical parts data information and look-up capabilities
to Ford and Lincoln-Mercury dealerships throughout the United States and

access to part availability and pricing, leading to faster customer service
and improved customer satisfaction.

parts specifiers, and technicians around the globe.
"This agreement is a direct result of ProQuest and Ford's shared
commitment to innovative solutions that will move the business of selling and
supplying parts forward in new and exciting ways," says Corey Roberts, Vice
