TecDoc blazes the trail with Fuse5

Innovative aftermarket operating system software specialist Fuse5 has chosen to work with Europe’s leading parts information data provider TecDoc, to provide the European market with the first genuinely cloud-based solution for businesses at every level of the automotive aftermarket.

This ground breaking development has the potential to shift the current technology in the market from its largely static position and catapult it into the 21st century to provide a far more suitable solution that will improve business efficiencies across all sectors of the trade.

Fuse 5’s chief operations officer, John Bunting said: “Our system is developed specifically for business operation in the automotive aftermarket: it is not an existing product that has been ‘adapted to fit’ and doesn’t use a legacy platform to ‘do the job’. Instead it is built on the same platform as Google, Amazon and Facebook, to work seamlessly with existing hardware, but utilising the benefits of the cloud.

“To enable us to launch our product into the European aftermarket we had to team up with the right partner for parts data and cataloguing, and in TecDoc we have not just got the dominant player, but also the most progressive partner we could have hoped for.

“Despite the differences in terminology for both product searches and business functions, the transition has been far easier than we even dared to hope, as it was very clear that the TecDoc team understood our requirements and knew exactly what they were doing and how to do it.”

For TecDoc, commercial director for UK and Ireland, Shaun Greasley added: “The market continues to evolve and Fuse5 brings a new and exciting alternative to the traditional system providers as they understand that many users want to choose the parts cataloguing system that they use, rather than having to use the one that comes with the system.

“Irrespective of how advanced the system or the amount of paperless transactions and business interrogation it is able to undertake, it has to incorporate accurate parts data and reliable cataloguing to really deliver for businesses needing to ensure the correct parts are identified, sourced and supplied to their customers, which is where TecDoc provides the solution for Fuse5, and the market as a whole.”
