Today's digital marketplace makes it easier for consumers to purchase our products from countless aftermarket dealers. While this is a definite plus for the distribution of our product, one of the negatives of this is that product information fed to consumers is not always accurate. By building and submitting our product and application data to the SEMA Data Coop for distribution, we have complete control over the product data that is supplied to jobbers and online dealers. This ensures that the product information and digital assets used by these resellers is uniform worldwide.

Not only are we the largest industry data repository, but our unique approach for data receivers is to provide data exports in exactly the right format for your systems.

INCREASE SALES AND PROFITS WITH GREAT DATA FROM SDC
Provided as a standard part of the SDC services, our Data Analysts work with our Suppliers to provide data quality at premier levels, to provide you a robust data set to fuel your business.
Using the familiar Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum scale, we will show you exactly where a data set is rated, and the required fields to acheive each level are based on actual feedback from Receivers like you.
Maintaining a high data quality is a critical element of effective data management, which makes the SDC a real game changer when it comes to generating sales. Incomplete or inaccurate data, on the other hand, only represents products poorly and often makes them difficult to find via search, as well as creating expensive and unnecessary returns.
