• BOSS Synergy Data Group releases new ISPC update

        • The BOSS Synergy Data Group who have been meeting regularly throughout the pandemic has released a major Industry Standard Product Classification (ISPC)update for January 2021. This version, Version 9.0, will replace Version 7.6.

          The Industry Standard Product Classification (ISPC) has created a common language for classifying office products. Using the same categories and cross-referencing codes means that cleaner, more accurate product and price file data can be maintained.

          The intention of this update is to allow for more detailed definitions in several growth areas outside of traditional office products. Tools, PPE and Clothing have been re-classified, additional classifications have been added to Catering, Janitorial, Arts & Crafts and Educational Supplies and new classifications now exist for Gaming & Smart Technology 

          Chris Anstey Chair of the BOSS Synergy Data Group said, “this is a major update to the ISPC and some classifications have been deleted and replaced by more granular categories. Tools, PPE and clothing are areas where major changes have been made. All users of the ISPC will need to review their classification data to ensure that it is in line with this version for 1st January 2021 “

          The major changes and additions have been listed on the notes tab. Deleted classifications remain on the file (greyed out) and the replacement category is shown.
