DIY vs. DIFM
Your PDM account allows you to generate data yourself, validated against the Auto Care Association’s ACES and PIES structure and compliant to your receiver’s requirements.
We offer data generation service at a reasonable rate (starting at $50/hour). Alternatively, select a partner from our network to assist you with your data generation. With your PDM account, you can keep track of progress and data quality. Finally, you have the ability to see how your data represents your products, your company, and your brand!

Don’t want to spend your own resources to build data? We get the job done for you! Our data managers are no database experts, but car guys (and girls). They don’t need to know ACES and PIES or other standards by heart but use the same PDM features we provide to each of our clients. We can, therefore, offer you knowledge from enthusiasts to make sure you not only get clean data but data that is actually relevant to your consumers! Pick your desired service:
- Transform existing data into standardized data (e.g. ACES & PIES)
- Research fitments
- Gap / VIO / OE Analysis
- Vcdb updates
Data strategy consulting @ USD100/hour
Data entry by enthusiasts @ USD50/hour

Algorithms & Workflow Management
Algorithms guide you through the process of generating your product data. Your PDM account intuitively adapts and learns relevant data points to describe your products. For every additional product you add or change, the necessary steps become easier and faster – in turn, helping you generate consistent, high-quality data tailored to your needs. Various elements, such as specific description types can be generated automatically. With PDM, your entire team works with the same data and receives tailored instructions to supply relevant and consistent data points.
Your PDM account gives you live feedback, while you are working. Besides always being compliant with the Auto Care Association’s databases (no separate Auto Care subscription necessary) you get feedback on the requirements of your receivers. Instead of waiting on a health report, instantly know how you comply with scorecards like Platinum SDC (no affiliation); meet the demands from warehouse distributors like Atech or Motor State, and marketplaces like eBay and Amazon; and most importantly, support your customers to sell more of your products.
