Managing your product data used to be a windy road. Not any more!
One of the biggest challenges many of our customers face is managing their product data. It can be time consuming, expensive and tedious, and it seems like everyone wants your data in a different format. For the big guys, it's doable, but for the small to medium guys, it can be an overwhelming challenge. And as most people have learned the hard way, Excel spreadsheets don't cut it when you need to get your products online, or send your product data to your distributors and dealers.
The good news is, we have the tools to help you transition to industry data standards like the AAIA's ACES and PIES. And with creative projects like the SEMA Data Coop (SDC), it's never been easier or more affordable to get your data in shape. The SDC not only helps brands get their data into standard formats, but it also makes the data available to the receivers of your choice. Once you're online, getting your data into the hands of new dealers becomes quick and simple.
WebInjected began working with the SDC in the BETA phase to:
- Ensure that our products work seamlessly with the SEMA Data Coop.
- Help our customers reduce the cost of standardizing their data.
- Help our customers access new market opportunities for their products.
- Provide cost-effective eCommerce sites that let allow retailers and dealers to sell any approved SDC brand on their own website, without worrying about data integration or product data management.
With the SDC, you have the tools and support to transform and manage your own data. And for those without the technical know-how, or without the internal resources or time, WebInjected can get your data into the right format for you.
At WebInjected, all of our products are being upgraded to work natively with ACES & PIES product data to ensure that it is easy for you to maintain and update your product information, and then export or share it with your distributors and dealers.
Standards-based product data means two things - cost savings, and access to new distribution channels.

What is ACES & PIES
ACES & PIES are standard data formats for product information (PIES), and vehicle fitment (ACES). These standards are supported and driven by the AAIA, and deeply supported by SEMA, and have already been adopted by many manufacturers, distributors and retailers throughout the industry.
Why ACES & PIES?
When your product data is in ACES & PIES standard format, it’s easy for you to send it to your distributors, or to online retailers. As more and more companies move to support these standards, it’s a great opportunity to expand your dealer network.
Having your data in an accurate, standards-based format can also help reduce your costs by improving data accuracy, reducing return rates, improving customer satisfaction, and making it easier to expand your dealer network.
