"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."

Our product content team aggregates information provided by the mainstream Home Entertainment distributors in Australia, well in advance of release. The information is received in various formats and processed by enthusiastic editors, into a central database. The team ‘cleans’ the data, checks for discrepancies, and further attributes it from other sources. Currently we track approximately 400 new releases every month from more than 20 distributors, adding to the +100,000 products already in our database, covering all Films, Videos, and DVD's released in Australia since 1982

As an example, the DVD feed includes theatrical content (Synopsis, cast, directors, ratings etc)in addition to and product information (price, catalogue number, barcode, back catalogue availability, trade promotions and specials). Currently this data is referenced daily by hundreds of our clients and their customers throughout Australia. Please view samples by clicking here.
