The solution to check auto parts for authenticity
In cooperation with the European association of automotive suppliers (CLEPA), TecCom has developed TecIdentify, the first IT-based standard solution for the automotive branch to check whether parts are genuine. The authenticity can be checked within seconds – worldwide, 24 hours a day.
The solution for managing article and pricing data between suppliers and traders in the automotive part market.
TecCMD makes possible for the first time a standardized electronic exchange of article, price and logistics data among all participants. From a common database the data is complete and correct when it is needed –independent of existing IT and customer structures.
Following successful pilots with several distributors, DENSO Europe is now rolling out TecOrder’s online reverse messaging solution to all customers across mainland Europe. All existing TecCom users will be gradually introduced to the system over the coming weeks. The new messages will automatically be made available to all new customers signing up to TecCom and developed for UK customers in the near future.
The TecCom partners Elring and TMD Friction have introduced the solution extension TecInvoice SAP Reverse Message Bridge in order to expand the circle of those who receive electronic invoices. As reported in the November issue of this Newsletter, with the help of the Bridge structured invoice data in tXML 2.5 format as well as the corresponding signed and verified invoice graphic are sent in a data stream. This makes possible both automated processing by the recipient and delivery to customers outside the TecCom network with VeR roaming.
The brake part manufacturer LPR S.r.l. from Piacenza in Italy can now be reached through the TecOrder part ordering platform. LPR already provides article data to the TecDoc catalogue as a “Certified Data Supplier.” The decision for TecOrder was as a logical next step to simplify inquiry and order processes for the company’s customers worldwide. Trade customers can now retrieve information about part availability and place orders online around the clock. They also receive order confirmations electronically. As the next step to improve its customer service LPR plans to send electronic despatch advice notices and invoices.
In order to encourage the spread of electronic invoicing and define supplier-independent standards throughout the EU, TecCom and twelve other service providers founded the European E-Invoicing Service Providers Association (EESPA) last year. The EESPA is an international, non-profit organisation according to Belgian law (AISBL) with the goal of acting as an umbrella organisation for the fast-moving e-invoicing industry.
Well before the planned fusion of TecDoc and TecCom in 2013, the two companies are working hand in hand to provide customers with the best possible service. In the first project implemented by the combined customer service groups of TecCom and TecDoc it was necessary to set up 1,120 business relations in a very short time. This was completed with great success; by working together the project was completed in half the time TecCom would have needed alone.
