Lunera Lighting Implements Industry Data Warehouse Data Synchronization Platform

Santa Clara, Calif. — March 18, 2015 — Lunera Lighting, Inc., a leader in lighting innovations accelerating the transformation to advanced LED technology, is pleased to announce that it has selected Industry Data Exchange Association, Inc.'s (IDEA) Industry Data Warehouse (IDW) as its electronic data synchronization platform.

Electronic data transfer makes it easier for Lunera to quickly connect with its own salesforce and customers for more effective business-to-business e-commerce.

"Due to the increasingly strong sales of our plug-and-play LED lamps, we have arrived at the benchmark of needing a scalable solution to transfer product and sales information in  

a quicker and more efficient fashion. By adopting IDW's electronic data sync platform, we will be able to provide near-real-time product data to our distributors and customers to expedite the ordering process," said Tom Quinn, Lunera's vice president of sales and marketing.

A scalable data transfer solution will remove the task from Lunera's customers to map and manage constantly changing documents. Working in partnership with IDEA allows Lunera to bring best-in-class practices for data management and deliver a fast, efficient customer information process.

The IDW data sync platform was developed through a collaboration of electrical manufacturers, distributors, and service providers, with a mission to satisfy the needs of all members of the supply chain and cut costs from the channel.

Built on industry eBusiness standards supported by the National Association of Electrical Distributors (NAED) and the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), the IDW platform from the Industry Data Exchange Association, Inc. reflects the most current data management and data transfer practices in the LED lighting industry.

The Industry Data Exchange Association, Inc. (IDEA) is the official technology service provider and eBusiness standards body of the electrical industry. The company helps thousands of manufacturers and distributors find the most cost-effective methods for running day-to-day business. IDEA's applications help connect the supply chain and make business processes efficient, easy and enjoyable for people every day.

IDEA was founded in 1998 through a partnership rooted in the collective leadership of the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) and the National Association of Electrical Distributors (NAED) members. Their applications also bring value to vertical markets such as industrial, retail, and consumer-packaged goods. IDEA is headquartered in Arlington, Va.
