The ALA Technology Committee has established a data standard for the lighting industry to simplify exchanging item data. This standard is set up as a simple one-page spreadsheet of all common attributes and pricing that are typically used to describe lighting products. A manufacturer can easily output and send this to its showrooms and reps, who can then can quickly import data into their business systems and be completely up-to-date. Manufacturers that use the standard are recognized as being ALA Data Compliant.
