When I started in the industry almost 10 years ago, requesting data from manufacturers was a huge obstacle. I spent many hours on the phone and sending emails trying to gather any data I could to try to turn it into useful information. Creating reliable and accurate data for thousands of part numbers was a challenge. Fast forward to today, where I can simply login to a website, download whatever I need - in the format I need - update our database, and I’m done. SDC has made it that easy! As an ever growing WD, our data needs sometimes change almost overnight, which is no problem because SDC’s Data Lab is always available and eager to assist. Their passion for the industry is clearly shown. It’s always a pleasure working with the SDC team!

Shift Your Data Into High Gear!
SEMA understands what a challenge it can be to manage product data, whether it is weights and measures, accurate descriptions, current pricing, UPC codes or application data to power vehicle specific parts look-ups. That’s why we created the definitive, industry owned and operated centralized data repository, complete with a comprehensive set of online data management tools.
We believe that all Suppliers should have direct ownership of their product data and that it should be configured and stored in the accepted industry ACES and PIES standards. The SDC provides a full-time Data Lab to assist Suppliers in the on-boarding process, and provides validation services to assure standards compliance before the data goes into the repository. Once it is securely stored, customers have the ability to receive data exports in whatever format they require for use in powering their internal warehouse, retail and Internet systems.
