SEMA Data Co-op Completes Beta Phase,Production System Launched
The SEMA Data Co-op (SDC) has completed its beta phase and has entered 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 enables users to easily define fitment and application information for each product via an easy-to-use web interface, was recently added to the PIMS. This integration completed the industry’s only state-of-the-art data management do-it-yourself 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.
To learn how companies can take control of product data using the SDC’s exclusive tools and training, contact SDC Director of Membership Jim Graven at 888-958-6698 x4, or e-mail jimg@SEMAdatacoop.org.
