IDW Manufacturer Receives Data Audit Certification (DAC)

FCI – Burndy Products, a leading manufacturer of connectors, has met all requirements for the IDW Data Audit Certification (DAC) program. Congratulations!

The Data Audit Certification (DAC) program measures manufacturer data against industry standards, best practices and IDEA’s recommendations for data quality & synchronization. Manufacturer data is measured in three forms:

  • Detailed, automatic measurement via IDW inbound scrubbing & messaging
  • Annual review of data with recommendations
  • On-demand IDW reports (e.g. Data Load Summary and Error Status Report)

The program is designed to grow awareness of manufacturer data stewardship and help manufacturers learn requirements to prepare their own data. Distributors can use the DAC program to encourage data quality from their suppliers. The program also shows a supplier’s dedication to data quality to their customers.

To follow FCI – Burndy Product’s lead, please contact Beth Badrakhan at (703) 562-4602 to sign up for the DAC program.
