Federal-Mogul has introduced an electronic communication platform that gives aftermarket customers access to an extensive library of technical resources and other business-critical tools.

The US based automotive supplier said the platform also provides customers with the latest news on the company's products and programs.

The Web site, which is called FM e360 and can be found at www.fme360.com, aims at North American aftermarket customers.

Said Jay Burkhart, senior vice president, Federal-Mogul Global Aftermarket: ""This single touchpoint enables any distributor, front-line parts professional or service shop employee to connect with the latest and best information tools covering every Federal-Mogul product line."

He added that users of the portal can also access Federal-Mogul's electronic catalog and its e-commerce systems.

Brent Berman, manager of e-data and digital marketing for the group's North American operations, said in a press release that the new system features an open architecture that should provide easy access for customers at every level of the aftermarket.

Said Berman: "This is an open platform in the truest sense."
