Intent on demonstrating how it can help all sectors of the aftermarket, TecAlliance will have a sizable presence at the inaugural Automechanika Birmingham trade expo as it will bring together the three core businesses – TecDoc, TecRMI and TecCom – that make up the TecAlliance triumvirate for the first time in the UK.
“As a result,’ explains Shaun Greasley, general manger of TecAlliance UK & Ireland, “in addition to the globally recognised TecDoc CATALOG electronic parts catalogue system, which ensures wholesalers are able to identify and supply the right part, first time, visitors will be able to see the other sides of the business, that ensure both technicians have access to the service and repair knowledge they need to compete in the market and the businesses enjoy the benefits of e-trading, with TecRMI and TecCom respectively.
“Due to the pace of change that is affecting every system within the modern motor vehicle, it is however TecRMI, the technical service and repair data resource that will be taking centre stage, because without access to reliable technical information of this type, workshops are simply unable to service these vehicles.
“Sharing knowledge in order to profit from the opportunities that knowledge provides is the primary reason why TecRMI is not only sponsoring the technical seminar programme to be held on Wednesday 8th, but also making a presentation itself.
“Ralf Pelkmann, TecRMI’s director of data development, will be making the address and its purpose is to demonstrate how the many challenges that developing technology presents for technicians can be overcome with accurate and reliable technical information.
“In addition, vehicle manufacturer (VM) recalls always make the headlines and with the recent announcements from Volvo and Renault, the matter has come to the surface yet again. Although traditionally not an area that has profited the independent sector, attendees are sure to be interested in the Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) package, an option unique to the TecRMI system that provides users with VM issued recall and service update information and therefore allows independents to share in the profit opportunities previously withheld from them.”
