A data-management tool enabling component suppliers to improve the quality and latency of data they supply to Autocat+, our industry-standard parts catalogue
What is Automate?
Automate is a catalogue data-management application that enables component suppliers to publish product data directly to the Autocat+ online parts catalogue. Automate takes your catalogue data and prepares it for publication in Autocat+, providing reject reports for incorrect data and gap analysis to help improve your entry.
Your product data is verified against the Make Model Index (MMI) before being scheduled for the next hourly upload – helping you to achieve MMI Certified Data Supplier (MCDS) status. Continual updates mean that your product information is never out of date, ensuring customers always have access to the very latest data.
