For many years now GKN has been working with TecCom, the leading B2B platform in the international automotive aftermarket.
As of today we offer the following services to optimize and automate business processes with our partners in the wholesale trade:
We offer the possibility of submitting paperless invoices and other documents electronically in accordance with VAT regulations – in a quick, safe and efficient way.
TecCMI optimizes planning and forecast processes as well as both traders’ and our inventories. CMI stands for Collaborative Managed Inventory; the tool calculates orders, quantities, and target inventories on the basis of the latest updates for every required part and enables ordering direct from the ERP system.
We offer this platform to simplify and speed up the processing of warranty claims electronically.
To see the status of current or completed warranty cases, just log on using your Web browser – quick and easy at any time. There is no need to install a special application on your computer. The integration of merchandise management systems and the interface to catalogues are also supported.
With TecIdentify we use the best solution to check and identify auto parts for authenticity and fight against product piracy – worldwide, 24 hours a day.
Each product is labelled with an identification number, unique in the world, in the form of a data matrix barcode. It is easy to send this code to the TecIdentify platform with a scanner, mobile phone, camera or manual entry.
