Fusion, part of the Care portfolio of products from Clifford Thames, is your streamlined connection to the parts data you need. An efficient, single, definitive data source is offered in a choice of web browser applications or web services to access the latest OEM data on demand, avoiding the use of multiple systems, costly data processing and storage solutions set-up.

Two of the solutions central to the Fusion product are PartFusion and Fusion IQ.

Fusion also includes a translation portal, a data quality monitoring application and part pricing tools.

The Fusion Customer Journey

If you need to find a part for a vehicle, the PartFusion Electronic Parts Catalogue (EPC) is the best route to that information. This web-based application, available hosted by Clifford Thames or as a DVD for local installation, filters your selection to focus on parts applicable to the vehicle configuration you are researching. Our streamlined publications processes mean that PartFusion provides information more current than traditional EPCs, reducing the costly impact of typical EPC data lags.

This ‘fit for purpose’ EPC, avoids fuss and gimmicks and is focused on helping the user find a vehicle part as quickly and accurately as possible. PartFusion incorporates the latest technologies, so a version of the product can be accessed on mobile devices.

Fusion IQ

Fusion IQ addresses dealer-specific parts management needs, with fast, easy navigation to the extensive Dealer Parts Catalogues that Clifford Thames retain and manage. If you have parts in your stock inventory and you’re uncertain where they fit, when you need to know the exact build features of a vehicle, Fusion IQ sources this information quickly, simply and accurately.

Fusion IQ accesses an unprecedented quality and quantity of data using a simple question and answer approach complementing information within Electronic Parts Catalogues (EPCs). But whereas an EPC targets answers to questions such as, “What part do I need for this repair for this vehicle?” or “What part fits this vehicle?” Fusion IQ lets you use questions like, “What vehicles do these parts fit?”
