Between its various divisions, TecAlliance provides the independent aftermarket with effective replacement parts management solutions, for wholesalers, distributors, workshops and even parts suppliers/manufacturers.
TecAlliance specialises in handling and processing data in order to provide these individual sectors with the tools they need to run their businesses more efficiently. So whether it is the accurate identification of application specific components on which factors rely, or detailed technical information to enable technicians to understand and tackle challenging service or repair processes, TecAlliance has the answer through its TecDoc catalogue and repair and maintenance information.
For many factor/wholesalers, TecAlliance is also the go to company for their own branded electronic parts catalogue provision and fulfilment.
From the parts supply perspective, TecAlliance provides the vehicle parc reference data that manufacturers rely on to ensure they are able to provide the range coverage they need for their brand and to allow them to cross reference the parts they manufacture with the other applications those parts will also fulfil and therefore, what needs to be sourced elsewhere to offer a comprehensive programme.
All this is made complete with an electronic trading platform that allows not only paperless transactions, but also stock interrogation/analysis and parts ordering processes that drive efficiencies across all sectors.

Cartell.ie was established in 2006 to help buyers make an informed choice when buying a used vehicle, including imported vehicles, by providing a user-friendly and cost-effective vehicle data checking service.
The company introduced the National Mileage Register to Ireland which now contains 25 million mileage readings. It set up the Motor Insurance Anti-Fraud and Theft Register in 2010 as a facility for insurers to make write-off records available to the trade and public, successfully lobbied the Government for introduction of dedicated legislative provisions in the area of vehicle “clocking” and it has been a consistent and vocal advocate for change in the industry including by calling for release of An Garda Siochana stolen motor vehicle data in the public interest and calling on the Government to regulate written-off vehicles in Ireland.
Cartell now provides products and services to all sectors of the automotive industry including vehicle manufacturers, insurers, financiers and the aftermarket.
The company is involved in other initiatives too: it has acted as title-sponsors of the Cartell.ie International Rally of the Lakes since 2010. It also recently partnered an initiative in the field of electric and autonomous vehicles called Electronomous and a social media platform – carandus.com.
Cartell.ie is a totally independent company and fully Irish owned.
