Posted: 10-08-2015

Users invited to enrol in Autocat v8 pilot program to test system in a live environment

MAM Software is pleased to announce that following successful beta testing of its new Autocat v8 electronic parts catalogue, it would now like to invite customers to participate in the Autocat v8 pilot program, a pre-launch of the new system. The pilot program will provide users with early access to the catalogue, allowing them to test the software in a live environment.

A brand new release, Autocat v8 features a host of improvements and new functionality that increases the overall capabilities and performance of the system.

A particular focus has been to improve the quality of data stored within Autocat. MAM has enhanced the Make Model Index (MMI) to include four new fields - Power (kW), No. Doors, No. Gears, Transmission - ensuring the data suppliers provide to Autocat is more accurate. Also, the amount of duplicate data in the system has been reduced, therefore search results now return fewer repeated part numbers.

The general speed of the system has also been improved. Lookups now take less time to return data, while Autocat’s new user interface ensures the catalogue is easy to navigate.

Bren Shaw at Chester based retailer G&B Accessories has been one of the beta testers of Autocat v8, and has praised the improvements made to the catalogue: "Autocat v8 has improved the look up speed dramatically,” commented Bren. “It is pulling back all the info we require instantly. The new features look useful, too. Overall I'm very impressed, it's ten times better."

Customers wishing to receive the pilot version of Autocat v8 should register their interest in the MAM Customer Community group ‘Autocat v8 Pilot’. Requests to become a pilot site will be addressed on a first come, first served basis.
