UNSPSC - Product and Service Classification

We have been working on the UNSPSC-determined classification and taxonomy method for many years now. Over time we have learnt and adapted the many different facets and aspects of the UNSPSC-way of classification and our team members are trained and specialized in the same.

Our consolidated UNSPSC experience has been captured in these salient points: 

98% is a given. It is not less than 98% accuracy

With our customized and tailored approach, we have adapted the classification process best-suited for the different customer requisites, data and product types individually. This has ensured consistency and sure shot 98% accuracy in all deliverables.

Repository of over 10M products

Our experience spans over 10 million products that we have helped classify, categorize under the UNSPSC methodology and we have maintained an over 10M repository for anytime reference.


In order to aid, streamline and better our classification process, we have developed and adapted a couple in-house auto classification tools so as to ease and simplify the process of classification.

UNSPSC Codes can be expanded as The United Nations Standard Products and Service Codes. These codes define the classification of products and services for use over the e-commerce platform and for various management activities.  The classification for UNSPSC codes deals in over 50000 products and covers all the spheres from the UNSPSC taxonomy system. The whole gamut of UNSPSC code system revolves around a centralized open global multi sector standard for the classification of the products and services. For complying with the requirements of rules and regulations of the e-commerce transactions, these UNSPSC codes have been developed accurately, provide for needed flexibility and are highly efficient. The composition for these codes is designed as an 8 digit number which has 4 levels of UNSPSC Code hierarchy with a scope for addition of two more digits in the form of an optional fifth level. The latest code was released in February 2014.

The UNSPSC Code Hierarchy follows the below given structural format.       

The benefits of using the UNSPC codes can be used in the following areas:

  • Wider Visibility for spend analysis and spend management system for an organization.
  • Effective product and service procurement with immense scope for customer acquisition.

We take a bow, for being an organization which has truly reflected the accuracy and flexibility offered by the UNSPSC coding system. To ensure that the individual customer needs are taken care of, we accept the challenges and risks associated exploiting the hierarchical taxonomy of the UNSPSC coding system. We provide for key benefits in the form of experienced team of professionals, in depth domain knowledge and a customer friendly approach to work.
