TecDoc Catalogue now available in Japan

We are happy to announce the successful launch of a special edition of the TecDoc Catalogue for Japan. This local replacement parts catalogue is based on our globally renowned TecDoc standard database. It allows to precisely identify passenger cars and light commercial vehicles and easily find the correct replacement part. With its intuitive, user-friendly design and search functionality, TecDoc provides an outstanding user experience. The TecDoc Japan Catalogue is available free of charge in English and Japanese at www.tecalliance.jp.

TecDoc is the ideal end-to-end system for accurate part identification for replacement part manufacturers, traders and workshops, helping them sell more parts and make things easy for their customers.

“We have developed the catalogue to meet the specific requirements of our partners in Japan. It serves as a bridge to bring the catalogue user and parts manufacturer together,” says Jane Wu, Sales Leader SEA and Japan. “Together with our agent SPK Corporation we’re aiming at recruiting most local parts manufacturers.”

Global standard embraces local requirements

The TecDoc Japan Catalogue is based on the internationally renowned TecDoc standard database. Our TecDoc Catalogue has been connecting parts manufacturers, traders and workshops worldwide for more than 25 years and has established itself as the leading vehicle and parts identification platform in the independent aftermarket.

2,695 local and imported car models, data of more than 13,000 TecAlliance standard vehicles (KTypes) and detailed product data for more than 4.8 million parts from 116 parts manufacturers can be accessed via the catalogue’s intuitive user interface. Diverse search methods such as via the unique Katashiki number, VIN, original equipment number, make / model or a fuzzy search deliver precise and reliable results for vehicles in Japan.

E-commerce made easy

The interconnectivity of data in the TecDoc Japan Catalogue provides intelligent information for parts manufacturers and traders on expanding their business locally and brings huge convenience to those looking for the accurate parts they need. Traders can easily design their own web shops and online catalogs with individual branding and design, integrating TecDoc data into their web applications to create their unique commerce solution.

Tapping into new markets in Southeast Asia

The launch of the TecDoc Japan Catalogue is an important milestone in our strategic approach for South-East Asia. “We focus on Thailand and Malaysia to develop API business with parts manufacturers, traders and e-platforms. Our SEA catalogue (www.tecalliance-sea.com) helps us to recruit local brands and advertise their brands. This helps us to bring more local brands on board and to increase the number of TecDoc users in this region”, concludes Wu.
