As we talk to manufacturers, wholesalers, and merchants from the Electrotechnical, HVAC & Plumbing, and Building Materials sectors, there is now more than ever a focus on digital transformation. Classification standards are agreed in construction and installation to make it easier to share information within the chain. For that reason, many companies are preparing to record data in line with ETIM and CCPI standards.
CCPI and ETIM challenges
By describing articles according to the ETIM classification, it becomes possible for manufacturers to exchange detailed product information with wholesalers in an unambiguous manner, thus ensuring efficiency in the chain. The Code for Construction Product Information, also called CCPI, sets a level playing field for all construction product manufacturers to ensure that the information they provide passes five acid tests.
As businesses adopt new ways of working, ProPlanet continues to help companies in the industry to manage and present accurate, complete and relevant product information. That's why LUCKINSlive and ProPlanet will present a webinar with 4 steps to prepare their product information for the implementation of CCPI and ETIM.
