TecAlliance, developer of the well-known TecDoc electronic parts catalogue software, has announced an update to the system which will allow suppliers to update their product information on a weekly basis. Currently, only monthly updates are enabled.
TecAlliance say that the current platform will remain mostly unchanged, with users still able to use the DMM, web service and TAF 2.4 data structure as usual, and no extra tools are required. There is also no extra charge, and the weekly update option is a voluntary one, with suppliers still able to stick with monthly updates if they choose.
The update also allows suppliers to more quickly correct data errors on the catalogue, which ‘significantly raises the overall quality of the data held within the TecDoc catalogue,’ said Shaun Greasley, TecAlliance’s regional sales director CEE/GB/IE.
“The relentless globalisation of the industry is putting extra demands on parts brands, particularly for those growing into new sectors or rapidly increasing their product portfolio,” Greasley said.
“The project starts at the beginning of April, so we’d like to invite data suppliers to register their interest by sending notification of their brand/s with the relevant contact details, while we also encourage data users to let us know if it is their intention to use the weekly updates.”
