Covisint packs three million motor parts into e-catalogue

Eric Doyle
Covisint, the motor industry e-marketplace, is to consolidate its global catalogue of more than three million parts using Requisite's eMerge content management system.

The roll out of the English-language version is expected by the end of this quarter. Covisint expects to have six million localised catalogue items available in Europe Asia and the US by the end of the year.

The use of eMerge will allow the company to present each buyer and supplier with an individual view of the catalogue.

Discounts and offers will be customised as business rules to show current prices and availability in local currency and language. This will be made possible by the finer granularity with which the individual catalogues that make up the facility can be processed.

Greg Wong, catalogue product specialist at Covisint, explained, "Covisint's current application only allows approvals at file level. This slows down the approvals process because if a large catalogue is received with a few errors, the whole catalogue gets rejected.

"The Requisite application will allow us to approve the correct items and reject only the items that are incorrect. This means buyers will get content faster."

The system will also allow content management to be brought in-house, offering savings over the current process, which uses an external content factory.
