Fleet Tyre Network (FTN), made up of over 700 independent tyre fitting centres, has adopted the Online Tyre Catalogue (OTC) system from CAM Systems to reduce the workload associated with its product data and tyre labelling compliance.
OTC is used to populate the FTN product catalogue from which all the fleet tyre fitments are selected. The data set is extremely comprehensive and very accurate and FTN believes this has given the business a significant USP in its market by being able to identify each product line individually and all the relevant tyre labelling information.
Over 160 brands from tyre manufacturers and importers, representing in excess of 70,000 part numbers, have been uploaded onto the OTC, amassing tyre collateral data that includes the entry of new labels and revisions on existing labels across all available categories of tyre.
The network now has access to a wide range of information via the OTC which helps it to assist fleet customers in making an informed choice about tyre products, their rolling resistance, wet braking and noise characteristics and the alternatives available.
Nick Bennett, Fleet Tyre Network, says, "This is a significant step forward. The OTC reflects all the tyre data changes – new, amended and obsolete - on a regular basis, so we will be able to react to these changes and amend our product files quickly and accurately."
Mike Allen, managing director of CAM Systems, says: “The introduction of new labels and other constantly changing product information, amendments to article numbers, changes within categories and movement of tyres from active to non-active products are a daily occurrence. It’s important that tyre dealers are made aware of all these changes and OTC can deliver this accurately so they are fulfilling orders correctly first time, every time.”
