Raw product data in its inherent state might not always be immediately beneficial, particularly those in the procurement and supply chain sectors; data refinement often comes in the form of product data enrichment. Among the prevalent standards for such enrichment is the United Nations Standard Products and Services Code (UNSPSC) classification.
This article delves into the significance of UNSPSC and how AICA has made product data enrichment both seamless and precise.
What is UNSPSC?
UNSPSC, or the United Nations Standard Products and Services Code, is an open, global standard for classifying both products and services. This hierarchical classification system has a structure that spans across multiple levels, ranging from segments to families to classes and commodities. It's designed to be used in a variety of applications and is becoming an integral part of modern business lexicons.
Why Should Businesses Use UNSPSC for Their Product Data Categorisation
Standardised Data Communication
With globalisation, businesses now operate on an international scale. UNSPSC offers a common language, ensuring standardised communication across borders and preventing misinterpretations.
Improved Data Analysis
UNSPSC-classified product data facilitates in-depth analytics. Businesses can understand spending patterns, identify popular product categories and even refine procurement strategies.
Optimised Inventory Management
With clear UNSPSC classifications, businesses can manage their inventory more efficiently, understanding stock levels and replenishment needs with precision.
Enhanced Supplier Relationships
Both suppliers and buyers benefit from clear data classifications, reducing ambiguities and fostering stronger, more transparent relationships.
AICA: Revolutionising Data Enrichment
AICA is a frontrunner in product data enrichment, harnessing the power of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to revolutionise product data services.
