BOSS releases video about Standard Data UniForm

BOSS understands that new product launches are the lifeblood for the growth of the Business Supplies industry and speed to market and breadth of adoption are key to their success. Vendors have always been asked by resellers and wholesalers to supply data in a variety of different formats to support the launch of new products so that these can then be listed in catalogues or online. That work can be time consuming, costly and frustrating for the vendors as they are just repeating the same data provision process but in different ways.

To help with this process BOSS asked their Synergy Data Standards Committee, chaired by Richard Wallington and assisted by Chris Anstey, to see if all the major stakeholders could agree to a unified format form which would satisfy the requirement of the vast majority of the vendors and resellers, and reduce unnecessary duplication and cost.

As a result of their work the BOSS Standard Data UniForm was created and, to encourage the use of this service, BOSS have put together a promotional video. The video highlights the frustrations felt by people in the industry with the different formats, and how the new UniForm service is beneficial, by decreasing costly confusions with an easy to understand, consistent order form.
