MAM Software’s comprehensive electronic parts catalogue Autocat has been further enhanced to enables users to quickly find all components for any vehicle and ensure the correct parts are matched to the application.
Selling the wrong car part can cause thousands of pounds of damage to vehicles. Additionally, not selling a part for fear it’s not an exact match can also cost a business money in lost sales. Some suppliers may send multiple part options to ensure a fit and spend time creating numerous returns.
As an automatically updated, web-driven catalogue, Autocat gathers component data from multiple suppliers, giving instant access to the most up-to-date component specifications. The data is maintained through an automatic verification and standardisation process, facilitating easy product comparison.
The catalogue is simple to use, with intuitive selections and drill-down menus on a single screen. Users can search for the components they need by product type, supplier or part number.
The latest Autocat development includes an enhancement to the information returned regarding part specifications. For example, brake discs include vital product information such as disc diameter in millimetres. When millimetres can be the difference between the perfect part, or not fitting at all, having access to this information can vastly improve supplier confidence when selling parts. Autocat sections that are included in this latest update are; brake discs, oils and cabin filters, with many more due to be rolled out.
Autocat displays this data within the main parts table, but also has on screen prompts to let the user know that there is further information to be examined. This latest information is also constantly being updated, keeping you up to date with the latest supplier advice.
Ben Nicholls, Sales Manager, Automotive for MAM Software advised, “This is a great development to already excellent software. It will allow businesses to sell with confidence, minimising the worry of mis-selling parts, increase their profits by reducing lost sales and reduce returns. I’m excited to see further enhancements to our long standing Autocat solutions and the benefits they can bring to our customers.”
