Activant LaserCat 3 eCatalog Interface Now Available for Vision, J-CON and Prism Systems

The Activant LaserCat 3 electronic catalogue interface is now available for use with the Activant Vision, J-CON and Activant Prism business management solutions.

The Windows-based user interface helps counter professionals reduce the time needed to find, recommend and sell the right parts for millions of automotive and light/medium-duty truck applications. The new interface was introduced in late 2008 for the Activant Eagle business management system.

“The popularity of this powerful new solution among Activant Eagle users convinced us to extend it to the Activant Vision, J-CON and Prism platforms,” said Tom Aliotti, senior vice president of the Activant automotive business group. “The LaserCat 3 interface is a market-changing tool for business owners and parts professionals who have been looking for a way to speed up the selling process while enhancing customer service.”

The LaserCat 3 interface consolidates critical part and application information within a single screen and enables users to launch lookups with multiple inputs – year/make/model, vehicle identification number or part description. Its advanced logic dramatically reduces the number of “clicks” required for most lookups and allows the counterperson to reduce or even eliminate the need to take notes when serving a customer.

The LaserCat 3 interface also provides access to a variety of value-added databases not available through other eCatalogues. These include:

    •  Activant BuyerAssist buyer’s guide, which identifies which vehicles use specific parts
    •  Activant LaborExpert flat-rate labour guide, providing detailed labour requirements for each job
    •  Activant ServicePlus database of OE-recommended maintenance schedules and service procedures
    •  Activant TireExpert OE and aftermarket tire guide featuring fitment listings, inflation recommendations, lug information and more

For additional information regarding the Activant LaserCat 3 interface, please contact your Activant representative or call (800) 380-9015.
