High quality product data: your sales depend upon it

Leading the UK’s product data transformation that, through ETIM, helps you turn your product data into a major strategic asset.

From manufacturer, to wholesaler or merchant, to contractor customer, every touchpoint in the supply chain benefits from the highest quality product data. If customers can’t find the right product information they won’t buy.

Many manufacturers want to harness the strategic power of their data and are looking for an efficient and effective tried-and-tested solution. The good news for the UK’s Electrotechnical, HVAC & Plumbing and Building Materials sectors is that you have access to the ETIM data model and ETIM UK Ltd.
