The CARAT trade fair, one of the most important trade shows for passenger car and commercial vehicle garages in Germany, took place from 11-13 October 2019 for the first time in Essen. As before in Kassel, more than 200 exhibitors from industry and trade presented themselves to the workshops and showed novelties and innovative solutions around cars and trucks. More than 21,000 trade visitors were able to experience innovations from the fields of automotive technology, electronics, spare parts, workshop equipment and services first-hand.

This year, the presentation of the new CARAT webELEKAT 4.0, the new one-for-all parts catalogue of the CARAT Group, was particularly in focus. This purely browser-based application now combines all the advantages of the previously used ELEKAT, webELEKAT2.0 and MasterBrain catalogues.

The modules AUTOCOMPACT and TRUCKCOMPACT again include our OE-compliant Repair and Maintenance Information (RMI) and we are offering support via our technical hotline. We were pleased to meet the wishes of our customer CARAT and demonstrated impressively the full benefits of the two modules to trade show visitors by presenting two tricky cases straight out of the garage.

The graphical component selection, automatically compiled spare part packages, the ServiceFinder, an overview of required special tools including OE numbers, manufacturer-compliant labour times and our expert hotline are just a few of the numerous advantages with which our Repair and Maintenance Information (RMI) convinced the fair visitors.
