What is the difference?

Electronic Spare Parts Catalog

Increased spare parts sales

An electronic spare parts catalog brings together pieces of information that belong together: Parts lists, 2D and 3D graphics of your components, and supplementary information on the individual parts. For this purpose, data is imported from source systems such as the ERP system, CAD system or other leading systems, linked and published from a central source in various media (online, offline, CD, print). The catalog creation process is done manually to fully automatically with our spare parts catalog software solutions Quanos SIS.oneCATALOGcreator® and PARTS-PUBLISHER.

Spare parts identification and ordering made easy

Our spare parts catalog software solutions Quanos SIS.oneCATALOGcreator® and PARTS-PUBLISHER offer extensive textual and visual search options. These and the linking of 2D and 3D graphics with the hierarchical parts lists for the individual machines and systems make identifying the right spare parts a child's play.

Spare parts orders can be placed directly via the electronic spare parts catalog using the integrated shopping cart function or by connecting it to your ERP system. This eliminates the need for service hotline support, as your customers can access the catalog on their own.

Service information system

Strategic advantages in after sales

If further information, such as technical documentation, schematics, repair instructions, hydraulic and pneumatic diagrams, training videos or other files in any file format are integrated into your spare parts catalog with our Quanos, PARTS-PUBLISHER or CATALOGcreator® software solutions, a fully-fledged service information system is created.

Single Point of Service Information

The information is intelligently linked and processed. This gives you a central information tool for customers, dealers, service technicians, maintenance staff and internal departments such as support and after-sales service - with no need for these departments to access your source systems (such as ERP systems, CAD systems, PLM systems, ECAD systems, etc.).

360 degree service view

All information at a glance

Thanks to the user management in our software solutions Quanos PARTS-PUBLISHER and CATALOGcreator®, the access rights - and thus the depth of information - of the individual user groups can be individually regulated via a detailed role concept. This ensures, for example, that customers only have access to their products with the customer-specific price lists or that your service department receives considerably more information.

This gives your employees, customers and dealers a 360° service view of your technical products and access to the information they need at any time.

Different user groups have different access to information
