Evolution of ECAT

Motaquip is committed to improving catalogue data, as good cataloguing is fundamental to getting it right first time, thereby, maximising sales and minimising returns

The heart of any catalogue system is a central, updatable and structured vehicle index to which parts are associated. In 2005, we created our first vehicle index, which contained 6,275 vehicles – today the figure is 12,180 vehicles covering all mainstream UK makes and models referenced at engine code and body style level with the latest models being added monthly. The ECAT vehicle index links to the MAM Autocat vehicle index to further ensure accuracy and minimise choices. To ensure ECAT always displays the latest information we update the system files seven times a day making right first time parts identification easier for our customers.
