A common vehicle search function like there is for cars (German KBA, license plate, etc.) does not exist in Europe for commercial vehicles.
The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is a worldwide unique serial number that is issued during production to each individual vehicle. With its well-known filter option TecVINFILTER, TecRMI already enables vehicle identification using this serial number. The newly developed filter option TecVINFILTER now also simplifies and speeds up the identification of the corresponding replacement part criteria in addition to the identification of the CV from the TecRMI and TecDoc database.
Vehicle identification with the help of the TecVINFILTER function is already available for five of the seven most important CV brands (IVECO, MAN, Mercedes-Benz, Scania and Volvo), and the replacement part criteria for three of the seven (MAN, Mercedes-Benz and Scania). This new service will also be integrated in the TecDoc WEB CATALOG and WEB SHOP so that it will be available in the second quarter of 2015. Thanks to its web-based format TecVINFILTER can be simply and quickly fitted into the existing customer solutions.
