More than 65 manufacturers from the construction industry have used the challenging year 2020 for a digitization and automation push in the ProMaterial network. These manufacturers, mainly from the insulation, drywall, tools, construction elements, wood, construction chemicals, garden and landscaping sectors, have joined the ProMaterial distribution network.
This means that more than 800,000 products from manufacturers' catalogs are already available for online sales, with over 12 million product properties and over 1 million media (images, data sheets, etc.). The products and the corresponding product data can be linked and sold quickly and efficiently in (online) sales channels, comprehensively and in optimum quality.
Outlook 2021: ProMaterial expects continued strong growth. By the end of the year, we expect to have over 50 million product properties and over 2 million media elements.
Thanks to ProMaterial technology, manufacturers and distributors benefit from extreme process automation, be it when selling products in their own sales channels or to sales partners. The preparation of product data significantly increases efficiency in sales.
ProMaterial is the new technology network specialized in the online distribution of construction products. The high-performance distribution solution enables manufacturers and distributors to present and efficiently sell construction materials and products with excellent data quality via various channels on the Internet. ProMaterial itself is a technology supplier and not a market participant. All groups of buyers find information about the products in the required form, in industry software solutions, online marketplaces, BIM or calculation systems or more simply via web shop. Professional customers and end users can more conveniently order a wider range of products. Under the auspices of buildingSMART International (bSI), ProMaterial is working with the industry to develop a new manufacturer-neutral description format for the properties of construction products. UniversalTypes, supported by many other software partners, are introduced in 25 country organizations of bSI.
