"We have subscribed to Trade Service’s Video data since 1987, originally the large loose leaf book, then Video Source data for the Video Finder electronic catalogue. Whilst we have always been more than satisfied with the service provided, it is only since the development of an XML data feed for our website that we got to appreciate the efforts of the team at TSA. From the outset they brought honesty, knowledge, skills, professionalism and a sense of humour to the project. After having many issues with other providers and developers, dealing with TSA was a breath of fresh air. Their approach was practical, clear and cost-effective. The project was completed before time, and now the data feed automatically updates my website with fully attributed new release information, as well as revising back-catalogue availability & pricing. Since introducing the feed, our online sales have tripled. We would highly recommend Trade Service to anyone."

What we do...
Trade Service of Australia aggregates product information provided by the mainstream Home Entertainment distributors in Australia. The information is received in various formats and processed by enthusiastic editors, into a central database. Information from the database is used to create and publish paper-based reference catalogues, and provide a standardised and structured data format for clients to feed their software systems and websites.
The company has teamed with leading Industry partners who provide business solutions to retailers and renters of Entertainment products. Integration links have been developed between the business systems and the TSA data feed. This gives clients a holistic and comprehensive product information solution including price, catalogue number, barcode, back catalogue availability, specials and promotions, which is then fed directly into the business systems. This data is referenced daily by consumers when making rental or purchase decisions, and by clients for their “back office” operations such as purchasing activities and inventory control.
