The Challenge

Mobile and web developers seeking a universal product code (UPC) database often discover that conventional solutions are either inaccurate or prohibitively expensive. Instead, developers have traditionally built custom product databases specific to their applications, only to discover that the regular maintenance and upkeep of a custom UPC solution is a significant and time-intensive challenge.

When researching a solution for a product catalog, consider these questions:

  • How complete is the product information for my needs?
  • What industry does the product catalog specialize in?
  • How consistent and accurate is the data for each product?
  • What level of granularity is included in the data?
  • Are the correct images associated with each product and UPC?
  • How frequently is the data maintained and updated?
  • What is the pricing structure for access to this information?
