SEMA Data Co-op Launches Automatic Updates

By SEMA Editors


The SEMA Data Co-op (SDC) has introduced a new feature that gives receivers instant data updates and makes it possible for manufacturers to get their products to market faster than ever before. Receivers will now automatically and instantly receive updated data formatted to their individual requirements any time a supplier publishes new information. With more than 1,200 members included in the repository, the SDC is the largest openly accessible industry product data repository.

“This is a great feature that really fills the gap in speed to market,” said Jim Graven, SDC director of membership. “Through the SDC, members will be the first to know about new products or data corrections as they happen.”

Receivers who prefer to regulate the flow of data may choose to utilize the delivery scheduler, which can manage deliveries by date and time in both full file refreshes or net changes since the last delivery.

Craig Schmutzler, director of customer support, noted, “The SDC is designed to work around the members’ individual needs and offers receiver-friendly data delivery processes. I encourage all suppliers and receivers to join the Co-op and experience our expert customer support and state-of-the-art technology.”
