TecAlliance® has awarded the TecDoc “Premier Data Supplier” quality label to the MAHLE umbrella brand. The TecDoc system from TecAlliance® is the leading spare parts catalog system in the independent spare parts market. The new quality label based on stricter criteria rewards manufacturers who provide excellent product data quality with a label in the catalog system that is visible to the customer.
“For a number of years, we’ve more than fulfilled the requirements for the previous ‘Certified Data Supplier’ label with all our sales brands,” said Olaf Henning, Corporate Executive Vice President and General Manager MAHLE Aftermarket. “We therefore welcome the tightened criteria regarding data consistency, data relevance, and the distinctiveness of the listed parts.”
MAHLE Aftermarket regularly feeds all relevant information about its spare parts into the TecDoc system. As a result, the spare parts are clearly identifiable, assigned to the individual vehicles, engine types, and years of manufacture, and can be found with a single click.
“With the increasing relevance of e-commerce in the aftermarket, the data quality of catalogs plays a crucial role. For us, providing the best possible data quality is a key service for our customers. With this in mind, the product and data management team at MAHLE Aftermarket is continuously working to improve our product data,” added Christian Schanz, Head of Lifecycle Management and Analytics at MAHLE Aftermarket.
