In the digital world product data is your silent sales team. Wholesalers’ web sites stand or fall by the quality of data shown to customers. If the data displayed doesn’t show enough detail, is hard to read or doesn’t give the customer enough information they will simply go somewhere else.
But EDATA is more than ecommerce. The rich product data inside EDATA – the industry data pool – now also offers up-to-the-minute Dynamic Data Sheets for wholesalers to offer to contractor customers as part of the sales process.
This new Dynamic Data Sheet tool, which is free to wholesalers*,enables your trade counter and sales staff to create professional, consistent data sheets based on the latest product data supplied by the manufacturers signed up to EDATA. These data sheets are perfect to pass on to your contractor customers, who may in turn wish to use them as part of a submittal or operations and maintenance manual for their clients. (*For more complex export formats, such as BMECat or API access, a fee may be applicable.)
EDATA is a central resource of rich product data sourced directly from manufacturers and managed by the EDA for the benefit of the industry. A recent decision by the EDA Data Services Board means that EDA Member Wholesalers now have free access to the rich product information inside EDATA.
