International automotive industry IT developer, Infomedia Ltd has announced that it will renew its agreement with Jaguar Land Rover Limited (JLR) to produce and supply its Microcat brand Electronic Parts Catalogue to Land Rover dealers, globally.
The renewed agreement allows Infomedia to continue supplying its totally cloud-based solution, Microcat LIV through to 2016.
Microcat is a mission critical application that helps genuine parts dealers quickly identify, locate and price specific parts that are needed to service or repair a vehicle, from the hundreds of thousands of parts OEMs (automakers) provide.
Each part identification is particular to a specific vehicle and the way it was built. JLR dealers began using Microcat DVD version in 2001.
Infomedia's founder and Executive Chairman, Richard Graham, said, "We foresee that the balance of this decade will bring more technology and automation to automotive dealers around the world as it is needed to help dealers be more productive, competitive and appreciated.
“For Infomedia's clients, we've created a powerful online solution suite called Superservice. Microcat LIVE is a foundation component of that suite, and along with the other components will play a part in helping dealers meet the operational and customer satisfaction needs of the future."
JLR dealers also use the company's Superservice Menus to support precision pricing of service maintenance and repair operations. They are part of more than 140,000 dealership personnel who use Infomedia's Superservice / Microcat solutions each business day.
