MAM Software announces rollout date of next generation parts catalogue
Autocat v8 rollout will begin on the 8th of September 2015
MAM Software is delighted to announce the rollout date of its next generation online parts catalogue, Autocat v8. MAM will begin the rollout on Tuesday 8th of September 2015, in a series of scheduled upgrades that will take place over a period of time. The new Autocat v8 data will follow afterwards, as users will need to have completed the software upgrade in order to fully benefit from the new enhanced data.
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 accuracy and quality of data stored in the catalogue, with an updated Make Model Index (MMI) empowering suppliers to upload increasingly accurate parts data. General speed improvements have also been made to the system.
Several features have been added to Autocat v8 that improve the functionality and user-friendliness of the catalogue. Key improvements and enhancements have been made to grids, notifications, search options, history, menus, images and performance statistics to give users an improved Autocat experience. Ongoing work behind the scenes will also ensure that the catalogue continues to improve.
“We’re delighted to announce the rollout date for Autocat v8,” said Nigel Clemett, Commercial Director at MAM Software. “We’ve listened to our customers and have been working hard behind the scenes to ensure the new release of Autocat is better than ever before, and we believe we’ve achieved our goal. Beta and pilot users have been full of praise for the new release, and we’re excited to hear what our customers think of our new and improved system.”
Rollout will be conducted on a controlled basis. Users will be notified of the upgrade’s availability via an alert notification when quitting the current version of Autocat. MAM Software recommends that users wishing to upgrade to Autocat v8 do so at a typically quiet period, in order to minimise downtime. The upgrade can take several minutes to carry out, depending on internet speed and hardware.
