TecAlliance launches interview series on trend topics in the automotive aftermarket

Date: Thursday 20 October 2022

TecAlliance connects the automotive aftermarket community. This is why many well-known players accepted the data specialist’s invitation to the professional video studio at its booth at Automechanika Frankfurt. The result: TecTalk, an eleven-part interview series that will be published on YouTube and as a podcast in the coming weeks.

Exciting interviews on trending topics that move the independent automotive aftermarket are now available to listen to and watch: TecAlliance will publish new content every Wednesday under the title TecTalk. A total of eleven episodes of the podcast and video series were recorded at the TecAlliance stand during Automechanika Frankfurt. Christian Müller, Vice President Marketing, acts as host while he interviews a wide range of partners from the aftermarket ecosystem.

In the first episode, Maria Bonelli, CEO of circular economy specialist C-ECO, talks about the importance of sustainability in the automotive aftermarket and current EU projects on remanufacturing and core management. She also discusses the special challenges of remanufacturing electric vehicle batteries and why the younger generation is bringing about a fundamental structural change in the market with its attitude to ownership and sustainability.

The second TecTalk features Robert Stevens, Director - Workshop Networks and Technology at GROUPAUTO International. He talks about the three most important drivers for the sustainable development of workshop networks in the automotive aftermarket: standardisation, integration and cooperation. Other topics include how telematics data can be used to deliver real added value, why service is becoming more and more important as e-commerce players gain in importance, and the implications of the increasing “loss of ownership”.

The TecTalk podcast is available wherever podcasts are available. The videos can be accessed via TecAlliance’s YouTube channel:
