SEMA Data Co-op Expands Data Services Through PartsHub Acquisition

This acquisition will provide SDC manufacturer members a more user-friendly PIM experience for data management across their organization.  

The SEMA Data Co-op (SDC) has acquired PartsHub, a comprehensive catalog management solution that will enhance a participating manufacturer’s ability to create and update industry standardized product information, regardless of their product data knowledge or expertise. 

Integrating PartsHub's interface with the SDC PIMS makes it easy for manufacturers to organize and update their data for industry resellers. The updated interface also allows possible datasets that can easily be exported in formats that meet reseller needs.

Additional transitions will be rolled out over the next 30-60 days as the SDC team gears up with training and data management for SDC’s current members. Inquiries can be directed to info@semadatacoop.org.
