The system consists of a hand-held terminal that helps collect data on returned alternator, starter and compressor cores. It also consists of a core identification tool as, according to Valeo, as much as 3% of core does not get identified.
The eCORPS systems aims to give rapid and reliable recognition of the majority of collected parts for an optimal remanufacturing process and a bigger and faster credit on surcharge. The system gives core collectors real time access to customer information, such as the number of products purchased against the number of cores returned. The database in the hand-held device contains more than 14,000 technical references and is updated daily.
