Microcat EPC is a mission critical application that helps parts dealers quickly identify, locate and price specific parts that are needed to service or repair a vehicle, from the hundreds of thousands of parts Nissan provides. Each part identification is particular to a specific vehicle and the way it was built.

The application is used globally by over 120,000 parts professionals each business day, in 29 languages. It has led the way with many firsts in its product category, such as: VIN-based parts interpretation, DMS interfacing, user ergonomics, information localization and multilingual operation.

This global EPC project for Nissan follow’s Infomedia’s recent product supply agreements with Nissan Australia and Nissan Europe to provide Superservice Menus quoting software in those markets.
