Why should manufacturers classify their product data according to ETIM?

News / ETIM / Standardization  - 
By classifying your product data as a manufacturer with ETIM, you ensure that your products can be found faster and better in the wide range of wholesale products.

Maintaining and classifying product data is a time-consuming task for many manufacturers, as it requires a lot of time and manpower. But this does not have to be the case. With the ETIM class check-up and subsequent ETIM feature maintenance with the help of ITEK, you can achieve added value for your company and save resources without a great deal of effort.

ETIM is a standard for item classification that enables the standardised and clear description of product characteristics internationally. In wholesalers' online shops, these classifications are used to search for and find products more easily using appropriate filter functions. Easier findability and visibility allow you to increase your sales potential as a manufacturer. In addition, an ETIM article classification helps to improve your data quality and create efficient product data management. This is because the clear definition of product characteristics reduces errors in product information and the standardised structure of the standard makes it easier to maintain, update and exchange product data.

Your benefits as a manufacturer with an ETIM classification:

  • Presentation of the most important technical properties of your products for describing and locating items in wholesalers' online shops

  • An open standard - anyone can use the model free of charge

  • Increase your product data quality

  • Internationally standardised application thanks to ID-based classification model

ITEK is the official staff unit for SHAC, digital interfaces and building materials. If you have any further questions about these areas, please do not hesitate to contact us.
