Just three years after its inception in March 2012, the SEMA Data Co-op (SDC) has announced two significant milestones on its way to becoming the definitive industry product data repository. As supplier membership approaches 380 brands, the SDC is now housing more than 4 million part numbers with more than 40 million vehicle applications assigned.
"This is a great accomplishment for us," said Jim Graven, director of membership. "We have worked hard to help the industry understand the importance of product data management, and we continue to gain ground with more and more suppliers every week."
In addition to the growing supplier base, the SDC now has nearly 600 data receivers registered in the system. "These jobbers, retailers, WDs and web resellers rely on the SDC for a steady feed of product data to power their systems and sell more parts," said Graven. "And that's really what we are all about; growing sales for our members".
