Manufacturer created product data is obtained from submitted files as well as information and files found on your website. CINX then adds original content such as standardized descriptions and categorization elements.
However, many data consumers in the construction process require additional information created by other organizations. This data is important for the specification, classification of, and purchase of products.
CINX works with these other content sources to include information for products. Thus creating a centralized location of all product information required by everyone in the construction process.
Most organizations have departments that are responsible for certain functions that may utilize different data points in different software created and stored in unique locations - data silos.
Filling and maintaining those silos can be an overwhelming task for distributors and contractors. CINX works with all software vendors to ensure the seamless integration and maintenance of data according to their specs. By participating in CINX you ensure that your product information can be easily used throughout the whole market.
The CINX Platform Services is an open platform that allows developers of construction software to access and integrate a range of product and transactional data from a single cloud repository.
An extensive set of REST web services using common HTTP methods will provide you access to the objects stored on the CINX Cloud.
