Mantrac improves service delivery through e-commerce
Mantrac Ghana, a sole authorised dealer in caterpillar products, has introduced an online Parts and Equipment Management Portal called "My Mantrac."
The portal is aimed at using e–commerce to enhance quality service delivery, faster parts ordering process, and helping customers to proactively monitor their CAT machines to avoid down time and operating cost.
