I was on a business trip recently and found myself with a bit of downtime in the morning. I had a couple of hours before I needed to be anywhere, so I turned on the TV and immediately became immersed in a movie. When I made mention of the movie to a colleague, she asked if I had read the book. I had not. Nor will I. It isn’t that I don’t enjoy a good book; I simply enjoy a good movie more. While some might say that the preference of a movie over a book makes me a simpleton, I disagree.
The SEMA Data Co-op has become “data central” for hundreds of specialty parts brands, representing millions of part numbers, and tens of millions of vehicle applications. This directory is designed to guide data users to brands that have successfully undertaken the challenge to manage their product data, and to continue to expand reference as more brands are added to the SDC repository.
At the 2017 SEMA Show, the SDC rolled out a completely refreshed user interface. Members who received demonstrations at the Show saw a Product Information Management System (PIMS) that offers more functionality, features and information than ever before. Now, members log-in to their dashboard to view the status of their account at a glance, and review exports, data health, new members and more.
Incomplete product data is an all-too-common issue, causing frustration for consumers, grief for resellers, and lost sales for manufacturers.
Since the inception of the SEMA Data Co-op (SDC) in 2012, more than 520 product brands representing more than 4.5 million parts have joined what is now the industry’s largest specialty parts product data repository. Designed to enable any company, no matter how small or large, to effectively manage and distribute its product data at the lowest possible cost, the SDC has an expert staff that will coach you all the way through the process.
The system upgrade provides users with greater flexibility and ownership to manage and distribute data.
The SEMA Data Co-op (SDC) team will be out in full force during Show week to offer free data-management consultations in booth #20679.
