Open Datacheck

Perfect data quality for the building services industry

  • Open Datacheck is an online platform of the DG-Haustechnik and VEG, with which manufactures in the SHK and Electro industry check and optimize their product data, as well as pass it on to the member companies of DG-Haustechnik and the VEG, i.e. to wholesalers. In addition, Open Datacheck also serves the ZVSHK platform, Open Datapool, and thus the trade with product data. 

  • Each manufacturer receives an individual access to the platform and can determine to which wholesalers his data will be transmitted.

Open Datacheck

How does Open Datacheck work?

The manufacturer delivers its product master data including images and documents to Open Datacheck. These are checked according to the respective industry quality guideline by a powerful testing tool and the test results are transmitted to the manufacturer in a comprehensible manner. The manufacturer can then carry out the corresponding optimizations. The Datacheck Service Team only carries out final visual inspections once the manufacturer has given its approval, and the data is then released to the wholesale trade. The processes can also be optimized by directly connecting PIM systems.
