Trade Dimensions Delivers On-Premise Information
Trade Dimensions has syndicated its new On-Premise database, which delivers
universal coverage of On-Premise outlets where liquor, wine and/or beer are
consumed. According to the company, the new database incorporates the TDLinxTM
coding structure to provide liquor, wine and beer suppliers with a consistent
framework for information about on-premise outlets.
Trade Dimensions has also enhanced its retail/off-premise database offering,
by adding fields that indicate the sale of liquor, beer and wine. The addition
of these 270,000 on-premise outlets brings its database to more than 600,000
stores and outlet records.
