ETIM is a unified classification of technical products, designed to help all parties (producers, wholesalers, and installers) a clear and effective communication on products. This classification includes a class of products and features (parameters), which are described in a standardized manner. Also, each class has alternative names: synonyms. It makes searching the right product much easier for everyone. Classification of products and their unambiguous descriptions prevent errors and linguistic confusion. They allow to identify the product and exchange the commercial data electronically between different business partners.

ETIM – the advantages of the product classification

There are many reasons for the introduction of product classification. Most of them involve a high degree of inefficiency in the current ways of exchanging product data. Much of the work is duplicated, searching for a specific product in the supplier’s files takes a long time, and any change in the structure because of the constant need to re-enter information that is already available in electronic form, but in a different format – the development and implementation of various interfaces is the source many mistakes and misunderstandings.

Benefits of the classification ETIM are the following:
