Let’s make sure you are getting the best out of your data!

Data quality is crucial for success in the automotive aftermarket. Only with flawless data vehicles and their respective spare parts can be determined unambiguously and without errors.

Competitiveness to OE identification systems

Significantly less effort in data maintenance

Higher trustworthiness & credibility

Boost your e-commerce business with high quality data

The success of online platforms directly depents on the quality of the product identification data and information available.

As online commerce continues to grow strongly, catalogue and ordering systems must offer high-quality product identification information.

Make decisions at your point of sale easier

The quality of the catalogue data determines whether the customer who relies on it to identify parts will be satisfied. Thus decision making and data quality are directly related.

For outstanding data quality in the TecDoc® Catalogue, information needs and information supply must ideally match. Better data supports the parts identification process leading to sustainable sales success.

Higher customer satisfaction at the point of sale

Save money through lower retail return rates

Stronger supplier-retailer business relationships

What our customers are saying

Premier Data Supplier (PDS)

Meets all our Certified Data Supplier criteria and other significantly more stringent content requirements. KPIs also encompass aspects of product content.

Certified Data Supplier (CDS)

Already meets specific requirements for TecDoc® data maintenance to a high degree. KPIs target basic TecDoc® guidelines.

The new “Gold Standard” in TecDoc® data quality

We are constantly working on improving the data quality in the TecDoc® catalogue. By introducing new requirements for our data suppliers in the form of validations and KPIs, we ensure that our TecDoc® data match the information needs at the point of service.

With the new “Premier Data Supplier” status, we honour the commitment of data suppliers whose data meet the high-quality standards in a special way and thus contribute to sustainable sales success. Because only through this cooperation in partnership can we increase confidence in the data basis of the TecDoc® catalogue.

The two statuses differ – apart from the different weighting – in that the underlying KPIs that must be fulfilled to achieve the respective award are aimed at two different levels.

The KPIs that must be fulfilled to achieve the new PDS status include, among others, the evaluation of data content such as free texts and attribute values (e.g. PR numbers, chassis numbers, equipment variants, etc.).

Our latest KPIs for data quality in the TecDoc® Catalogue

To ensure high data quality, we have established standardized production and update processes on the one hand and defined numerous guidelines for our data suppliers in the form of validations and KPIs on the other. In this way, we can ensure that the information needs at the PoS can be fully served by means of the data provided by our data suppliers.

Unlike the already known metrics for data quality, these are specifically aimed at product content. The KPIs you are already familiar with target the TecDoc® guidelines.

KPI 7: Translation of text modules

KPI 7 checks whether the supplied languages for text modules match the languages actually used (DE, EN, FR, IT, ES, NL, PL, RU, TR). It calculates what percentage of the text modules used are translated.

With KPI 7, we want to ensure that information is available at the PoS in the respective target languages (ISOCode_20) and can be understood accordingly by the customer.

Make sure that your translations in the text modules really correspond to the specified target language.
