DDS is pleased to announce we have become a Member Service Provider to IMARK Group, one of the largest independent marketing cooperatives in the world! This is an exciting validation of our efforts to help offer additional choices and solutions (not a one-size-fits-all model) to the industry and thus help deliver a real competitive advantage to distributors now and in the rapidly changing e-commerce future. Following is the announcement IMARK shared with its members:
IMARK Group is pleased to announce that DDS (Distributor Data Solutions), a leading e-commerce product content provider serving the wholesale distribution industry, is now a Member Service Provider to IMARK Group, Inc.
DDS was formed in 2014 by veterans of the electrical industry to assist distributors with the challenges of obtaining and presenting top-quality product content on their e-commerce websites. Since then, DDS has developed a suite of products using advanced technologies and concepts to power e-content for distributors seeking to differentiate their e-commerce offering and provide exceptional service to their customers.
DDS has more than four million electrical, industrial supply, HVAC and plumbing SKUs to date—with all the supplemental information, images and documents that manufacturers make available—ready for deployment on a distributor’s e-commerce website, regardless of technology platform. DDS also maintains the content to ensure distributors are presenting current and accurate product information to their customers.
DDS’ product content is sourced directly from more than 375 manufacturers, and includes features, specifications, multiple hi-res images, videos, documents (spec sheets, brochures, installation manuals, CAD drawings, 2D & 3D drawings), 360-degree product images, marketing descriptions, and more.
In addition to delivering e-commerce-ready product content, DDS also provides complete end-to-end content management for distributors and their websites. This includes enhanced product content, product maintenance, product file matching, category management, normalized facets, product file cleanup and more. All content is delivered custom-formatted to each distributor, with programmatic enhancements to enable faster time-to-market.
DDS offers product content and data management solutions that can help any IMARK member distributor—regardless of size or industry—and whether they’re just entering the e-commerce space, or looking to improve their existing online offering.
