The need and the solution

Production, sales, after-sales and the distribution of spare parts are overseen by eight production sites (in Europe and Asia), 12 sales subsidiaries (in Europe and Asia), one joint venture in China and one in Russia, 155 importers and over 3,100 dealers around the world.

A global manufacturer and a complex network require a solution to easily support the supply of spare parts, accessories, maintenance packages and merchandising to their clients.
e-PARTS TACS provides a power tool to SDF to edit and automatically update the spare parts catalogues, the quick reference and accessory catalogues, the scheduled maintenance catalogues, the repair time schedule books through a smart integration with the company systems such as ERP and PLM.

e-PARTS Explorer allows SDF to quickly distribute via multi channels the catalogues and related information such as prices, availabilities, substitutions… to their clients and collects the orders in real time directly in their systems.

An e-Commerce platform developed by Key Technologies, based on e-PARTS PIM and NOP Commerce, enables SDF to offer original parts, services and also third part products to their dealers, subdealers and importers network but also directly to B2C clients.
