The SEMA Data Co-op (SDC) introduced a new feature to simplify PIES and ACES imports for Suppliers through Basic and Advanced Load Sheets in Excel or Pipe Delimited formats. With more than 1,200 members included in the co-op, the SDC is the largest openly accessible industry product data repository.

Stephanie Jones, Director of eBusiness, noted, "SDC Manufacturers also have the option to send in their own customized import and we can create a map specific for their unique file through our new Import Mapper Tool.”

The SEMA Data Co-op is an industry-owned and -operated project designed to bring full product data management capabilities to participating suppliers at the lowest possible cost. Features include a secure, industry standards based centralized data repository, extensive on-boarding tools, expert live training and technical assistance, and unlimited standard or fully customized data exports.
