    Most ecommerce shopping carts have two levels of categorization. Some carts even have more. Cartanium sites adhere to the AAIA ACES PCdb (Parts Categorization Database) structure. This is Category, Subcategory, Part Type, and Position.

    Each part number as managed in the Auto Plus system can be associated to unlimited combinations of category, subcategory, part types, and positions. This means that you can have something you have always wanted: have your part number show up in multiple categories.

  • Part Number, Vehicle & Keyword Search

    One field on every page of your site allows your customers to enter search criteria to query data by part number, interchange number, vehicle application and keywords.

  • AAIA (Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association) ACES VCdb and PCdb Compliant

    Having the ability to search for a part using make, model, year, liter etc is nothing new. Being able to have all of your application data validated to the ACES industry standard is. Unlimited possibilities for full VCdb group and attribute searching. Read more...

Cartanium & Auto Plus working together

There are many good and even great online shopping cart solutions and developers out there. Some of these web developers are great but do not understand the automotive parts industry. They lack features such as interchange inventory numbers, alternate inventory parts, and most importantly dynamic MMY vehicle look ups based on the AAIA ACES standards. There are also great automotive web shopping cart solutions. Most of these solutions offer an affiliate type of program where the database is streamed from an automotive data repository house. These sites do not allow for the manipulation of inventory data to customize or personalize the part number data to make it unique to you. Because of this expensive Pay-Per-Click campaigns are required to drive search engine traffic to the automotive site.

Managing your data in Auto Plus and an automotive shopping cart by Cartanium, you have total control over the quantity and quality of the data manage for each part number. To take it one step further the Auto Plus system dynamically generates SEO for each part number using data from descriptions, manufacture and brand names, HTML notes and category fields. Although there are no guarantees for search engine optimization success that anyone should make, the Auto Plus system integrated to Cartanium gives you a leg up on the competition.
