The new Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket online catalogue will be launched just in time for Automechanika.
Based on the new design of the RepXpert garage portal, the online catalogue at www.schaeffler-aftermarket.com (direct link: http://toc.luk-as.de/web/) offers up-to-the minute product information as well as garage-specific service information for all four brands — LuK, INA, FAG and Ruville. This new, centralised catalogue also replaces the current Ruville catalogue.
A further benefit is provided by the integration of the transmission components database into the Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket online catalogue, meaning all transmission components for passenger cars, vans, commercial vehicles and buses are available with immediate effect. In addition, all INA GearBOX repair solutions are included, as are bearing sets for commercial vehicles.
The new item comparison function also proves particularly useful for day-to-day work in the garage. The function allows two or more items to be compared with one another quickly and easily, meaning that product differences are immediately visible and the time taken to search for the correct spare part is considerably reduced.
The new Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket online catalogue provides a comprehensive database for anyone looking for product and service information in the passenger car, van, truck and transmission segments. However, links in the tractor segment had to be omitted — the existing TecDoc structures on which the online catalogue is based do not allow for meaningful links. An alternative online catalogue solution is currently being developed for this vehicle segment.
The online catalogue can already be used on tablets via the conventional browser. Additional new functionalities are also planned; for example, search functions such as country-specific codes (licence plates) will be activated shortly. Information regarding additional functions will be communicated nearer the time.
