Opportunity Knocks – Are You Ready?

By | Announcements, ecommerce | No Comments

Automotive Parts & Accessories Market is Already Changing and Will Change More.

Ebay “Garage” (http://www.ebay.com.au/motors/garage) has been around for some time now and lets the user lookup and add their vehicle from the MVL (master vehicle list) which is powered by TecDoc.

The latest upgrade or change is the addition of the new fitment lookup on the search results page.

In the example below, if the user searches by “Camry oil filter” Ebay search knows the user is looking for auto parts and automatically triggers the fitment lookup filter and displays it at the top of the results page.

The user can then refine the search by using the fitment lookup drop down selection. This then filters the results to only show products and listings that are linked to that vehicle via the MVL.

No product or vehicle link – no visible listing. Read More

PARTsWebsite

PARts DB, a TecDoc integrated automotive product and fitment e-cosystem has launched its new website, viewable at www.partsdb.com.au

PARts is a Sydney based venture that has been changing the way Australian automotive suppliers, wholesalers and sellers have been using product data to enhance their business.

TecDoc is the world’s largest automotive product and fitment data aggregator and is owned by the parts suppliers themselves. It was formed in 1998 to create a uniform vehicle and product description standard to allow over 500 suppliers to broadcast and share their product data with their customers. Through PARts, Australian suppliers and brands can now connect to sellers and the market providing their product data to their customer using a global, unified standard.

The PARts data feeds and synchronisation allows manufacturers, wholesalers and dealers alike to access PARts supplier data and TecDoc subscribed supplier data covering over 500 leading global brands and local brands. The system is well suited for retail and workshop performance, 4×4 and accessory markets.

PARts is a permission based system and allows manufacturers and brand owners to manage their data and control its distribution. Parts distributors and sellers can also manage and control the brands and supplier data they see while adding and enhancing the data with custom titles and notation for their own network.

The new website portal allows potential customers to learn about the functionality of the PARts system and learn about how it integrates with a variety of other services and software products, such as eBay MVL, Autosoft, Peach Business Software, Flow, Channel Advisor and Neto.

The website provides a wide variety of links so customers can find the integrated solution that suits their business including PARts Console for real time data management, PARts B2 for B2B e-commerce and a variety of links and resources for total product management.

Enform is an experienced integration partner for PARts, we can assist in getting your PARts product database to your customers, whether it be through your website, B2B solution, eBay or otherwise. We believe that PARts forms the foundation for an extremely effective product marketing strategy, and with appropriate integration it can dramatically expand the information your customers have about your products and increase sales.

TecDoc Repco PARts auto fitment data

TecDoc and Repco (GPC Asia) concluded a deal Friday 6/9/13, for Repco to sync their Navigator system with TecDoc KTYPEs for Australia and New Zealand. This will enable Repco to use KTYPEs as a broadcast code to brands already using KTYPEs

“This is great news for Australian auto parts brands and suppliers that already link to TecDoc vehicle KTYPES as they can now provide product and fitment data direct to Repco using this data. It also makes it easier for suppliers to broadcast product data to a growing group of TecDoc subscribers using data aggregators “  says Andrew Mattock from TecDoc Asia Pacific.

TecDoc is the world’s largest automotive product and fitment data aggregator and is owned by the parts suppliers themselves. It was formed in 1998 to create a uniform vehicle and product description standard to allow over 500 suppliers to broadcast and share their product data with their customers.

TecDoc Australia through PARts is helping the Australian parts aftermarket to lower cost of data creation and aggregation by promoting the standard and data feeds from participating suppliers. Through PARts, Australian suppliers can now connect to the same standard and provide their product data to their customer using a global, unified standard. You can read more about TecDoc here.

PARts is a permission based system so suppliers and sellers have full control of who sees their data and in what environment. PARts includes a full management and admin system in the cloud allowing suppliers and sellers to interact and manage their data. The key point being, it’s the suppliers and sellers data. You can read more about PARts here.

PARts can also integrate with online market places like eBay which use TecDoc KTYPES to power their master vehicle list (MVL) and fitment look-up. That is, once a product is connected or linked to KTYPES through PARts it can be listed on eBay for easy look up by retail customers. You can read more about eBay and parts compatibility here.

Repco is a division of GPC Asia which is arguably the largest automotive aftermarket parts specialist channel in Australia and New Zealand. The group also includes other product and service brands like Motospecs and Ashdown-Ingram. More details here.
