Launched in 2020, EDATA’s mission is to facilitate digitalisation of the UK electrotechnical sector bringing tangible benefits for the supply chain through the creation, management, and transfer of accurate, consistent, high quality product data with ETIM (the global product data standard) at its heart. A strategic initiative of the Electrical Distributors’ Association (EDA), it is a “by the industry for the industry” asset that has the backing and input of many sector stakeholders.
Steve Marr, Marketing Director of the manufacturer, says: “We have a long-standing commitment to the digitalisation of the industry and joining EDATA is testament to this. Improving the quality of our data and sharing this with our partners and customers is a key driver for us as we continue on this journey. Partnering with the EDA is just one of the ways we’re making Legrand data available in line with customer requirements.”
Margaret Fitzsimons, CEO at the Electrical Distributors’ Association (EDA) adds, “Legrand is a key player in this sector and a valuable addition to the data pool – we are delighted that they have made this commitment and we, and their designated wholesaler customers, look forward to having access to their excellent product data via EDATA.”
