Don’t miss the free webinar organized by Edilportale and Archiseller in collaboration with the leading exponents of the supply chain, on October 27th at 3:30 pm.
Started more than three years ago, the Standard Archiseller is a project they have collaborated on Edilportale, Made Group e Bigmat, representatives of Sercomated, the service center created by Federcomated, manufacturers (including Knauf), dealers e resale consortia. “It represents a historic turning point for our industry – tells Ferdinando Napoli, CEO of Edilportale SpA and Co-Founder of Archiseller – because it is the first existing standard for data transfer of building products and materials. An innovative system that will improve the efficiency of the entire supply chain. “
The Standard Archiseller is a cross model to all product categories of Construction. A tool that unifies the taxonomy and nomenclature of articles, equipment and construction materials, while still allowing manufacturers to characterize their price lists as much as possible. Thanks to the Standard, in fact, each producer will have the opportunity to keep intact the peculiarities and incisiveness of the price list and improve communication with resellers. The dematerialized price list, in fact, will be able to reach retailers quickly, providing precise information.
“Improve the speed, accuracy and reliability of the flow of information exchanged along the supply chain – explains Gabriele Nicoli, CEO of Archiseller – it means accelerating the process, with a significant reduction in errors and costs. ” With the Standard Archiseller it will finally be possible minimize errors due to the manual exchange of data from a price list: just fill in the format to convey information and prices, without reworking the contents too much. An innovation that is very necessary in construction, especially in this period of fluctuations in sales prices due to the rise in raw materials, which involves continuous updates of the price lists and a very high risk of error.
“The Archiseller Standard will lead to development of the entire market and growth for both resellers and manufacturers”, he claims Andrea Santoro, Archiseller Sales Manager. The Standard, in fact, will also help solve the problem of minimum sales quantities. “Today there is a serious problem in construction – continues Santoro – manufacturers fail to fulfill small quantity orders. With the Archiseller Standard it will be possible to give uniformity to that data as well. ” In fact, within the model there is an item relating to “Minimum order”, a very useful reference for retailers who will be able to order even less important quantities of items and materials.
Considering the current panorama of the construction world – forced to accelerate the digital transformation – the Standard Archiseller stands as facilitator for all stakeholders in the supply chain. The pandemic, in fact, has pushed the communication between producers and retailers to abandon the traditional logic to move to a digital channel, not without difficulty: lacking a common language, each has adopted its own method in the census of products. All this has translated into an increase in costs and an extension of time.
“The Archiseller Standard, in this context, represents an agreement on a way of doing things, on a way of describing data”, continues Ferdinando Naples. “It is a tool that allows you to avoid that everyone follows their own path sequences and nomenclatures that make it impossible to quickly import export between one subject and another.” With this in mind, the Standard solves a twofold need for producers: that of digitize and export your price lists.
Resellers will therefore only need a few clicks to import the digitized price lists on management software and on your own website and use all kinds of information for customer management, accounting and database. “On a practical level – conclude Ferdinando Naples – if we all agree on how to register the products, it becomes easier both to import this data into a digital medium and to update it. ” An innovation for the construction world and a step forward towards the digitalization of retail in Construction.
