At the congress “II Jornada de la Distribución en Cataluña,” held on 13 May 2014 in Barcelona, TecRMI, the information system for repair and maintenance information, was presented to the Spanish market for the first time.

The congress was organised by the association of Catalonian part traders (CIRA). Claude Lotrian (Director Western Europe & Latin America for TecAlliance GmbH) and Juan Ramón Cervantes (Managing Director of the Spanish TecAlliance partner company Isi Condal s.l.) participated in a podium discussion on the topic of “Use of New Technologies in Logistics,” where they showed how the integrated solutions from TecAlliance help to simplify daily business in the automotive aftermarket.

Lotrian explained the strategy of TecAlliance. “The alliance of brands in TecAlliance makes it possible for us to provide a comprehensive solution for the sector. We play an important role in increasing the competitive strength of the independent aftermarket,”emphasizes Lotrian. “And we are constantly working on responding even better to our customers’ requirements. Recently we added new filtering possibilities in the vehicle search by integrating the Vehicle Identification Number, or VIN,” said Lotrian.

In the discussion session Cervantes emphasised the possibilities of the online platform TecRMI. “TecRMI provides all necessary technical data for replacement parts, helpful services and comprehensive know-how. That is why TecRMI is the optimal sector solution for repair and maintenance information – also for the Spanish market,” explains Cervantes. “The graphic search for replacement part and repair information that TecRMI has developed is completely new. This is a novel way to find the right part quickly.”
