OptiCat, supplier of cataloging data services for the automotive and heavy-duty aftermarket, has announces that Bendix – Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC and Bendix Spicer Foundation Brake LLC – has joined the OptiCat Network.
As the heavy-duty aftermarket community continues to embrace data standards, more and more heavy-duty truck parts data receivers (distributors) are requesting high-quality digital product data and images that conform to the Auto Care PIES (Product Information Exchange Standard) data standards.
The OptiCat Network, which provides a cloud-based, secure data repository with data validation and distribution services for the aftermarket supply chain, says it is focused on helping all heavy-duty channel partners be more efficient and successful. “We are excited that Bendix has chosen to partner with OptiCat in providing their standardized part information to their customers through the OptiCat OnBoard Supplier portal,” said Blake Barson, OptiCat director of data services and national sales. “The Bendix brand has always been known for the quality, performance and durability of the parts they manufacture. The company is committed to delivering accurate and accessible digital data as part of its e-commerce roadmap.”
With this new addition, OptiCat adds Bendix to its list of reputable heavy-duty brands available now in OptiCat’s secure data repository for receiver channel partners.
