SEMA Data Co-op Beta Phase Ends, Production System Launched

By Jon Wyly


The SEMA Data Co-op (SDC) has announced completion of its beta phase and has now gone into production mode with the newly developed Product Information Management System (PIMS). All beta participants have been successfully migrated into the new system, with full PIES functionality and ACES file handling in place. Additionally, the SDC's exclusive "ACES Mapper," which will enable users to easily define fitment and application information for each product via an easy-to-use web interface, will be added to the PIMS in early May. This will complete the industry's only state-of-the-art data management DIY tool set. Nearly 350 specialty-parts and accessories companies are currently participating in the SDC with more being added daily, and no special knowledge or expertise is required to get started.
