ETIM International has worked closely with FEST, the European Federation of the Sanitary and Heating Wholesale Trade, on creating a tool called the Smart ETIM Classifier, to help ease the onboarding of the ETIM standard for manufacturers in the HVAC and Plumbing sector.
The Smart ETIM classifier tool is a machine learning tool that helps convert existing manufacturer product data to ETIM classified data. It predicts the proper ETIM class using the product description as input and can also convert manufacturer own technical specifications to ETIM features and values. At this moment the tool is only trained in English for products in the HVAC and Plumbing sector, local languages can be added on request.
Please go to the this link to see a demonstration video of the tool. You can find the tool here, where (without login) you can try to find the proper ETIM class for a product by searching on the product description. Full use of the tool requires a login.
We are now at the stage of wanting to test the tool through the input of more catalogue data in order to improve its accuracy and effectiveness. If you are interested in a free trial of the Smart ETIM Classifier tool, then please pass on your contact details to the FEST secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org.
