Mapping

Let the Industry Experts Handle the Mapping for You

The Latest Data Solutions. Decades of Experience.

Mapping enables any company – even those without automated catalog systems – to export the same files used for producing their print catalogs in industry standard formats. VDI’s mapping service is modular in design, so it can be married at any time with our other database and catalog management systems. With Mapping, you can:

  • Meet the latest Auto Care Association ACES, CARQUEST, EPICOR, NAPA, WHI and retailer standards without hassle
  • Our missing coverage report will show you exactly where you have holes in coverage. View an example here.
  • Get your data in front of your customers quicker, increasing sales
  • Assure that catalog updates and mapped files are always in sync
  • Expand later by integrating mapping with our vCat Catalog system
  • Receive one price – guaranteed – for your project

You also receive dedicated customer service from our experts, back-up technical support and a final bill that matches our estimate – GUARANTEED!

  • We find that their services are indispensable to the way we do business.  Vertical maps our applications, delivers our ACES files to our receiver base, manages our attributes and digital assets and delivers them to our receiver base in the format they expect including PIES .xml. We are pleased with the service of Vertical Development and would recommend the service they provide to us.

ACES Mapping (AAIA):
Don’t worry! We handle hundreds of unique projects each year for customers across North America relating to the Aftermarket Catalog Enhanced Standard (ACES) of the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association. Send us your raw data or current files. With our industry-leading software, our team will map your data quickly and accurately. We work with you and your trading partners until every single file is accepted into their database. That’s our pledge to you.

PIES:
It seems like everyone is asking about Product Information Exchange Standard (PIES) these days. There are numerous variations of these product management platforms, but Vertical Development, Inc. has experience working with them all. As long as you have data, we can build a file or files for you.

PAdb:
We have a solution that is easy for our customer to incorporate their PAdb (Product Attribute Database) data into a PIES deliverable format. As long as you have our PIES module, there is no additional cost to incorporate this data to your existing files.

NAPA PartsPro:
We’ve been working with NAPA PartsPro for years now. We know the ins and outs of this system, so if you’re not sure where to begin, we can lend a helping hand.
