Supplying our partners with accurate and complete data is an integral part of a successful relationship with our distribution partners and, ultimately, selling more parts to the customer. Prior to joining the SDC it was always a cumbersome and time consuming effort to get this data to our partners and make it fit into their template, which were always different. Now with the SDC, we have one place that we can keep our data organized and up to date while giving our partners one convenient and easy place to obtain it, which has eliminated a barrier and gotten our information and products out to more customers.

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.
