OptiCat (www.opticat.net) is a supplier-centric global data management company focused on the acquisition, consolidation and distribution of automotive parts product attribute, application information and digital assets. Through its DIO (Do-it-Once) repository, OptiCat serves the data needs of suppliers and receivers with a one-step process that increases data timeliness, accuracy and breadth, leading to increased sales and profits for the automotive aftermarket.

Frugal Mechanic is proud to announce we're now an authorized data receiver in OptiCat. This integration allows us to get direct-from-the-manufacturer vehicle fitment, product attributes, and images. As we roll out additional manufacturer-supplied data on our website, be on the look-out for enhanced and even more accurate product information & vehicle fitment.
