DDS provides distributors with a comprehensive data package to power their e-commerce initiatives: DDX, or the Distributor Data Exchange.
DDX delivers the best product content in the industry to distributors, along with complete end-to-end management of the data, to help facilitate an exceptional online experience for their customers without the resource requirements and turnaround times typical of other solutions.
DDX product content is sourced directly from manufacturers and delivered to you, the distributor, with custom formatting for accurate, efficient integration into your unique e-commerce system.
In addition, DDX product content can be delivered already classified (UNSPSC, ETIM, etc.) and translated into the local language(s) you need to serve your customers, making this the most intelligent data solution available in the wholesale distribution industry.
Comprehensive, e-commerce-ready product content sourced directly from more than 875 manufacturers across Electrical, Lighting, Solar, Plumbing, HVAC, Tool, Industrial and Automation industries.
Complete management of your product content—including categorization and normalized facets for optimal searching and usability—plus regular maintenance to ensure your customers are always viewing updated information.
