Continental is the first tyre manufacturer to present its brands in the new tyre product category in the TecDoc Catalogue.
Continental Included as First Tyre Manufacturer
The summer, winter and all-season tyres suitable for the vehicle are displayed based on the size specification or a vehicle search. The product range of Continental Aftermarket and ContiTech has already been available in the TecDoc Catalogue for many years. The decision to present tyre information was a logical step for Continental Tires.
Tec Alliance has a good understanding of the complex tyre business, where else it has many years of experience in the IAM. This has enabled TecAlliance to offer exactly the solution needed with TecDoc. TecAlliance’s TecDoc Catalogue contains standardised data from more than 900 spare parts brands, with millions of product descriptions and product images. From the end of January 2022, there will also be tyre data available in the TecDoc Catalogue, via web service and in the data packages.
“With the new tyre product group in the TecDoc Catalogue, we offer a simple and efficient channel for identification and distribution in the automotive aftermarket. We support the tyre industry providing the data by converting it from their PRICAT exchange standard to the TecDoc standard,” says Jürgen Mehlis, Executive Vice President Data Manager Products at Tec Alliance. “With this conversion option, we are opening up new opportunities for the entire industry. In the future, we will expand the tyre product group even further,” he added.
