OptiCat, in conjunction with TecAlliance, announces the availability of a new, Global Vehicle Table (GVT), that provides detailed information on over 60 vehicle attributes, or ”vehicle criterion”, for over 140 countries around the globe. This new GVT comes as the result of local vehicle research over many years by TecAlliance.
In conjunction with data on vehicles in operation (VIO), this new tool provides the ultimate aid to developing catalog applications and line offerings for multiple countries. This fee-based table features links to a great number of external services and standard databases such as KBA, ACES, MAM MMI V8, Dutch license plates and more. Specific standards supported include TecDoc, MAM, RDW, Auto Care ACES, and data is updated monthly in order to provide the latest perspective to users. For a peak at GVT, visit AAPEX Booth 4446.
When considering acquisition of a “Global Vehicle Table”, it is important to consider the use planned for the information. The GVT itself provides detailed information about vehicles that are running in given countries, but it does not generally provide VIO information. Both these data sets are needed in order to provide a complete picture of each marketplace for purposes of market planning and entry. TecAlliance offers both sets of information and provides outstanding support to users. It’s important to know that TecAlliance’s data is derived from as many quality global sources as possible, including “feet on the ground” at TecAlliance locations in major country locations. These personnel address local market needs and specifically develop accurate and precise data sets for customers. This comprehensive approach is necessary in order to provide quality data to the marketplace.
The supplier, after completing its analysis of the new global market it wishes to reach, can then effectively take products to market using the TecDoc system and its extensive tool set. This tool set includes the TecDoc Catalogue, the widest distributed digital web catalog in the world, with data translated into 35 languages. In addition, linkages to repair and maintenance information and logistics tools are integrated into the TecAlliance system, such that a complete marketing solution is easily accessible. Overall, the TecAlliance System, in cooperation with OptiCat, is the fastest and most effective way to “Go Global”!
