Reduce errors by sharing transactional product, pricing and packaging data; differentiate your product with marketing content (e.g. spec sheets, attributes, images, and descriptions). See the manufacturers that do it best in our IDW Bands of Excellence program.
Keep your product data secure and control your information—we boast 100% uptime since our inception. Authorize specific partners to receive product information, and grant access to public and/or private pricing structures for each trading partner.
Reduce order errors and operating expenses by using manufacturer-supplied or approved product data. IDEA goes direct to the manufacturer to get product data and works with them to develop a sustainable process to keep it up-to-date. With the IDW, distributors will know exactly where the product data comes from.
The eBusiness standards used to create and enhance the IDW are developed by and for distributors and manufacturers. Manufacturers can use the IDW to proactively evaluate their product data through the eyes of distributors, and distributors can confidently display IDW product data in their web stores and catalogs.
