NAED's Journey Map of Product Data, Phase ll: The $5 Billion Impact

The latest study on the industry’s product data practices reveals that distributors and manufacturers lose over $5 billion in productivity. In addition, product data impacts over 30 different roles across departments. Based on survey results from NAED members and contractors, the results provide a better picture of the direct and indirect costs of poor product data. It features: 

  • Estimated costs of productivity losses for small, medium, and large distributors and manufacturers 
  • Degree of impact of poor product data on different roles and what causes friction points 
  • Over 25 metrics in five different business categories to determine which areas would benefit from improved processes 
  • Maturity model outlining practices ranging from ad hoc to optimized 
  • Survey results from over 300 distributors, manufacturers, and contractors 
  • Coming soon—an estimation model for individual companies
