Somora Motor Parts, the body panels, lighting and radiator specialists has joined the growing number of quality parts suppliers to list their products on the TecDoc electronic parts data system.
Motor factors and distributors that are using the TecDoc CATALOG parts identification system, can now find Somora parts when searching for replacement components. In addition to the Somora part number, users can also view the OE number, linked vehicles and Somora’s contact details.
Commenting on the development, Somora’s Cormac Moore said: “Obviously taking the decision to become a TecDoc data supplier was a big step for us as the system is usually associated with the big names in the parts business. However, TecDoc is the first place that most of our customers will look when identifying parts, so although it took us a little while to get everything in place with our internal systems and the data, it was ultimately an easy decision to take.”
“We’d estimate that nine out of ten factors in Ireland use TecDoc, so we expect to substantially increase the exposure of our complete product range to these key customers.”
“Naturally there are always issues that need to be ironed out and processes that need to be got used to when adopting any new system, but the initial data feed became live on TecDoc in January and we have already had some good feedback from our customers. The latest revisions should be on the system from April, by which time I think we’ll really start to see the benefits.”
Shaun Greasley, commercial director for TecDoc UK and Ireland said: “We are delighted to welcome Somora into the TecDoc supplier family and look forward to playing a part in their continued growth.
“Although many suppliers might think that they need to be of a certain size to list their products on TecDoc, Somora is a perfect example of a business that has a distinct range of products which it can now present on a part-by-part basis to a large audience of TecDoc CATALOG users that are specifically looking for a particular application. This can only be good for Somora and for those searching for these applications.
“TecDoc users rely on our electronic catalogue to ensure that the parts that they supply to their workshops customers are correctly identified and are not returned. So businesses that need to increase their business efficiencies would do well to take a closer look at TecDoc.”
