Platinum Batteries (Europe) Ltd, the UK’s largest independent battery distributor has acknowledged the contribution PACT – the joint connectivity initiative between TecCom and eParts – makes to its business, particularly during the busy winter period.

PACT connects a motor factor’s business management system to Platinum Batteries system and allows for the ordering process of Platinum, Oldham, Tungstone, Crompton, Trojan and M-Tec brands to be fully automated and seamlessly transacted.

Motor factors are able to check stock availability in ‘real time’ and also ‘price match’ at the point of enquiry / order, so that discrepancies are identified immediately ensuring the best possible working relationship between motor factor and supplier.

The winter period is a particularly difficult time for motor factors. Knowing what products to stock and when to stock them has become extremely challenging given the UK’s unpredictable weather patterns.

But, with PACT’s instant connection to Platinum Batteries, a motor factor is able to make enquiries and stock orders with ease, allowing for next day delivery thanks its distribution network situated throughout the UK.

Neil Warren, Platinum Batteries Supply Chain & I.T. Director, said: “Winter is one of the busiest periods for a motor factor and battery supplier and so with the right infrastructure in place, our customer service remains of the highest standard. PACT is a key part of this as it allows customers to instantly communicate and trade with Platinum Batteries without the need to worry about managing paperwork such as invoices, acknowledgements and dispatch notes as these are all integrated as part of the electronic trading process.”
