BCA Bearings Brings Home the ACPN Gold Award for ACES & PIES Catalog Data
Mt. Prospect, IL – NTN, the parent company of BCA Bearings, is pleased to announce the receipt of a 2021 Content Excellence Award from the Automotive Content Professionals Network (ACPN). BCA Bearings received the Gold Award for ACES and PIES Data in the Small Category (10,000 – 49,999 applications) at the 2021 ACPN Knowledge Exchange Conference.
“We are proud to be recognized for our ACES and PIES data by the ACPN” noted Mark Richardson, Catalog Manager, Automotive Aftermarket for NTN. “Our automotive aftermarket catalog team prides itself in providing the most up-to-date, complete and accurate catalog data to our customers and business partners. Knowledge is one of our strategic pillars, and this award is validation that we are honoring that commitment to those who depend on our ACES and PIES catalog data to keep their operations running smoothly.”
The Knowledge Exchange Conference, the world’s largest meeting of automotive content professionals, vendors, and solutions partners, is hosted by the ACPN, a professional society of the Auto Care Association (ACA). Member companies of ACA represent all major product segments of the automotive aftermarket industry. The 2021 ACPN Knowledge Exchange Conference was held virtually May 17 -19.
The ACPN Content Excellence Awards, given annually, recognize the best examples of product cataloging in the automotive aftermarket. The award for ACES and PIES data is based upon the assessment of an ACES xml file (and its matching PIES xml file), containing a single brand. The ACES and PIES data must pass XSD validations and then is scrutinized using pre-defined judging guidelines, to determine the award winners.
This award represents the fourth ACPN Content Excellence Award for BCA Bearings in the last five years.
