SDC Presents the Data Excellence Award to Distinguished Gold and Platinum Brands, It’s about the Score and More! 

As was announced in November last year at our SDC Users Meeting, the SDC Scorecard was being revised to better reflect the needs of resellers when it comes to receiving and utilizing the product data they receive. The levels Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum were revised to help you navigate through the maze of required information and publish what is essential to your business partners. The scored data serves in helping varied resellers in our industry, from chain stores, to warehouse distributors, and retailers of all sizes, whether online or brick-and-mortar.

"The SDC Scorecard can help build your sales, brand reputation, and relationships with your business partners and customers," say Gigi Ho, SDC VP of Operations. "The bar was set high and the work our manufacturer members put forth in working with the SDC to meet the new requirements is to be commended."

The Road to Data Excellence - Spotlight

"Earning and maintaining a Platinum score with SDC is a top priority for us," says Jay Crouch, Director of Global Business Development, Injen Technology. "Data acts as a silent salesperson for our company and arms our sales team and our distribution network with in-depth information that we can then pass along to the consumer. We made the decision over a year ago to revamp our entire dataset with rich and meaningful descriptions, attributes, digital assets, and detailing the features and benefits of our products that defines the quality data that our distributors and our end-users demand. Once we completed that task, we knew that SDC was the right choice to not only host our data but help us continually refine and distribute it as well. We owe a large portion of our data success to SDC and their amazing team."

"SDC’s Data Excellence Award announcement inspired us to review our data and raise our score by adding features and more images," says Daniel Green, Operations Manager, Supreme Suspensions. "We depend on the standard to know that our clients are getting relevant, current, and quality data -- and it has also helped us maintain our internal product records."

"Diode Dynamics updates PIES and ACES data regularly so that our dealers have the most up-to-date and detailed data possible. Maintaining Platinum helps us provide our dealers with all the tools they need to be successful with our products," says Ryan Ehlers, E-Commerce Manager.

Earning and maintaining data excellence is a conscious, strategic decision made by dedicated staff.  Choosing this strategy pays off big time for your brand and internal data. Successful companies, like the spotlighted members above, create a company data strategy with data stakeholders and include a regular schedule for their new releases, updates, and reviews.
