BMF Product Standardisation Launch

September 20 – 21, The Hilton Birmingham

Pimberly is delighted to be part of the BMF product standardisation data template at their 2023 annual conference. 

Throughout 2023 a cross member working group have created an industry wide product data template. The goal is to solve the array of unstandardised product data pushed through the supply chain from manufacturers, suppliers and merchants.

The template will be launched at this year’s annual conference via an interactive workshop. Understand the importance of adopting the new standardised template, the benefits to merchants, and a run-down of who’s already benefiting from it.

The session will be led by Jonathan Chard, working group chair, and will also include a panel discussion featuring industry experts from Travis Perkins, SIG, IBC, and Pimberly, followed by an interactive Q&A session. 

“Standardisation is the key to removing inefficiencies in the Building Materials supply chain. It brings consistency, providing structured and reliable data that can save time and effort when that data is shared through our huge £44 Bn supply chain. Data standardisation is about making sure that each data type has the same content and format, essential for tracking, comparing, searching, and selling products.”

Jonathan Child, Group IT Director, Bradfords Group
