Telstra eBusiness Services has partnered with Infomedia to create a national online parts ordering system for the Australian automotive industry.
Telstra eBusiness Services, which is owned by Telstra, provides online solutions for a number of vertical markets. By signing a two year deal with electronic parts catalogue specialist Infomedia, the companies hope to provide 24/7 access to the Microcat Market online parts catalogue and ordering system, which is designed to bridge the gap between motor vehicle repairers and parts suppliers.
David Brawn, chief executive of Telstra eBusiness Services said the deal will mean better service for customers and improve efficiency for suppliers.
"The agreement to distribute the Microcat Market system delivers on our strategy to provide the entire automotive industry with eBusiness solutions which support process improvement, ensure better decision making, lower costs and improve customer service," said Brawn.
Brawn said that Microcat Market will minimise mistakes when ordering parts and help speed up the order turnaround time.
"We can provide automotive businesses across Australia, including panel beaters and suburban vehicle repairers, with access to a world class system that will make them more efficient and effective," said Brawn.
