Catalog and Data Management Services is one of the most important service lines of APA Engineering.

Automotive parts catalogs are critical for the resellers and end-users to ascertain parts fitment. These catalogs tend to be highly technical and specifications driven. Incorrect/ poorly drafted catalogs result in significant sales risk and reputation risk.Catalogs needs to be correct, complete and current.

There are several factors which affect cataloging

  • Introduction of newer vehicle models and variants
  • Phasing out of end-of-life vehicles
  • New and existing aftermarket manufacturers introducing newer and better parts
  • Global automotive regulations and associated trends
  • Upgrades to catalog standards and technology standards

Earlier, parts catalogs were printed in bulk and distributed. Slowly e-Catalogs emerged (scanned catalogs, book-like e-zines and then PDFs.). With the prolific growth of eCommerce and mobile apps, users increasingly demand digital catalogs (accessible anywhere anytime.). Manufacturers & resellers are also transitioning towards IT solutions for maintaining and distributing catalog data.
