Access to parts identification data

Due to technical progress and a growing number of vehicle types and variants, the parts and components used in vehicle assembling are increasingly complex. Different types of vehicles need different types of replacement parts and even within the same model, parts may differ.

Unequivocal identification of parts, systems and components is crucial in the independent aftermarket for the correct repair and maintenance of the vehicle, but also to ensure the delivery of the correct parts from the parts producer and the parts wholesaler to the workshop. The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is therein an increasingly crucial element.

To learn more about the need for aftermarket operators to access parts identification data, please read our brochure or take a look at the video below!
