Flexfab Joins The OptiCat Network

With this new addition, there are more than 930 Supplier brands in OptiCat’s secure data repository.

OptiCat, a leading supplier of cataloging data services for the automotive and heavy-duty aftermarkets, announced that Flexfab 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 and other data users) 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 provides a cloud-based, secure, supplier-controlled distribution mechanism that includes data validation and secure distribution of proprietary data to specifically chosen channel partners within the supply chain. This capability and others provided by the OptiCat Network is focused on helping all heavy-duty suppliers and their channel partners be more efficient and successful in selling more parts.

“With the rise of online ordering and searching, we’re excited to help our customers optimize their sites to sell more Flexfab product,” said Jim Pytlik, business unit director. “We know more searching is being done online due to market trends and the COVID pandemic. We believe it will be a win-win for Flexfab and our customers.”

“We are proud that Flexfab has chosen to join OptiCat and use our network to provide their customers with their standardized digital product information,” said Don McEntee, OptiCat director of Sales & Marketing. “Flexfab has recently updated all of their digital content, and we’re excited to help them easily share this new rich content with their customers.

With this new addition, there are more than 930 Supplier brands in OptiCat’s secure data repository for use by supplier-approved Data Receiver channel partners.
