The braking supplier with more than 30 years experience of working with motor factors and garages will become an official data supplier for TecDoc’s CATALOG system.
TecDoc’s Shaun Greasley, said: “This welcome development means that TecDoc licence holders and those with a derived web-portal, can now search Europe’s most popular and comprehensive parts data system and find an Apec reference when receiving an order from their garage customers.”
“As factors are acutely aware, parts returns and incorrect product identification account for a very high level of costs to a typical factor, so any improvement that is made in the process of identifying and supplying the correct product will directly result in reductions to these costs and increase profits on the bottom line.”
Motor factors utilising the cataloguing system continues to rise year-on-year as the sector benefits from the number of suppliers providing parts data in one central database.
Greasley added: “Being able to send a customer a single part, without the fear of having to deal with the associated cost of processing a return, is one of the single biggest business efficiency gains possible to a factor and the TecDoc system can make that possibility achievable.
