Continental Direct embraces e-trading through PACT

Continental Direct confirmed today it had become the latest company to integrate electronic trading into its business through PACT — the exclusive distributor of TecCom and eparts in the UK and Ireland.

The decision means that a number of Continental Direct’s (CD) ordering procedures are automated such as dealing with stock enquiries, ordering and the exchange of order acknowledgements, dispatch notes and invoices.

The CD brand offers more than 10 product groups in the UK automotive aftermarket. Last year, the brand introduced more than 70 new shock absorber references and over 40 new coil springs, with the addition of 12 new CV joint kit part numbers.

CD’s Jason Noon said the investment in PACT would boost efficiencies in the ordering process, including real time connectivity for enhanced parts availability, accurate pricing and fewer invoice discrepancies.
