As part of a standardisation project by TecAlliance and the Bundesverband der Hersteller und Importeure von Automobil-Service Ausrüstungen e.V. (German Federal Association of Manufacturers and Importers of Automobile Service Equipment, ASA), the TecDoc standard has been supplemented with the areas workshop equipment, tools and special tools, workshop supplies, DIN and standard parts, factory equipment and occupational safety.

Andreas Assmann, Vice President of Information Management at TecDoc, is delighted that all conditions have now been met for suppliers from this segment following the successful conclusion of the project. “Over two years, we have worked together with the ASA association on a new standard for workshop equipment and supplies. Our aim was to facilitate the exchange of all products that are required in retail and workshops via standardised TecDoc structures. The end of the project marks a major milestone – it is now down to the manufacturers from the workshop field to also make use of our offerings and link their articles accordingly,” says Assmann.

The standardised product information can already be used for linkages. The TecAlliance sales advisers will be happy to answer any further questions at
