Extensive update of TMD Friction´s online catalogue „Brakebook“

Leverkusen, 6th June 2017. TMD Friction has expanded its online catalogue “Brakebook” with several useful functionalities in order to offer best possible support for automotive experts. After the renewal of Textar brake pad drawings for Brakebook at the beginning of the year, visually adapted brake disc drawings will also be available from now on. The new drawings include further information like weight and minimum thickness as well as illustrations of screws if included. Overall more than 750 brake discs drawings have been updated which corresponds to a coverage of almost 95% of the sales volume. New drawings will be visible in Brakebook from now on and in July in the Online Catalogue TecDoc.

Another renewal of TMD Friction´s service offering helps navigating through Brakebook: A User Guide is now available on Brakebook which can be selected by clicking the button “Help” in the menu. The user guide offers detailed explanations for several functions like the article, vehicle or expert search. No more than three clicks are necessary in order to find the fitting part for a specific vehicle. The website also offers further help for creating your own PDF-catalogue. Garage experts can create it based on specific products, articles of specific manufacturers or even for specific models. Tips for installation and usage of the Brakebook app as well as several other functions like the barcode and brake pad scanner conclude the offer.

“The technical challenges for garages increase; simultaneously the flood of information increases. Our aim is a best possible support for our customers when it comes to vehicle maintenance and repair. Therefore we provide our customers with all necessary information of our products as quick and easy as possible”, says Patrick Baßiere, Category Manager of TMD Friction. “Brakebook is the core element of our service offering and will be constantly developed, updated and expanded so that vehicle experts find all relevant information in one place. We want to prepare them for the garage´s everyday life and make a contribution to satisfy our customers.”

Brakebook is TMD Friction´s exclusively developed Online-Catalogue for different brand products. The service is available on www.brakebook.com as well as with the free App for Android and iOS.

TMD Friction has expanded the Textar brake disc drawings with additional information like weight and minimum thickness.

Drawings of the 2016 introduced two-piece Textar brake discs have been integrated into the catalogue with additional information of included screws.
