Product information involves a variety of attributes, relationships, texts, images and specifications, often spread across a variety of systems, applications and databases. Collecting, managing and sharing this complex combination of formats, dimensions and relationships is a process that is often too complicated for traditional Product Information Management (PIM). Many businesses have business-critical data, i.e. master data, in the form of product data, but often also business critical customer data, supplier data etc. By working with PIM on a multi-domain MDM platform such as Stibo Systems Enterprise Platform (STEP), you think one step further and get PIM evolved - all inclusive.
Working with Product MDM on the Stibo Systems Enterprise platform STEP, you work more efficiently and strategically to collect, manage and share product information across the entire value chain. A centralized, complete solution for organizing, categorizing, locating, synchronizing and enriching product data according to business goals. This multi domain MDM system does not necessarily replace all your other information systems, but it does make them work more efficiently by integrating with them.
External parties and systems can syndicate their product data to the system securely and efficiently through the cloudbased PDS service, and with the Buy-side/Sell-side function, you can set up a Golden Record for your own quality-assured data standard. You avoid duplicates, you manage versions and language dimensions, you can see relationships, analyze, make better decisions and shorten time to value.
Product MDM also supports data governance, so that you can work strategically with data security and data integrity, increase operational efficiency and create a true data-driven competitive advantage.
We can help you set up a PIM system in just 10 weeks with our PIM Accelerator. The solution is based on Stibo Systems' world-leading Enterprise Platform STEP.
Retail continues to change at an unprecedented rate. As a retailer you have to keep up and evolve in order to survive and compete. You need a quick way to register, process and get the right data in place in different channels, to be able to quickly expand the product range and deliver engaging, personal omnichannel experiences. Stibo Systems' PIM for Retail is a solution that is tailored to do just that.
It is based on Stibo's world-leading Product MDM platform and has been adapted with intuitive, preconfigured modules, workflows, business rules, instrument panels and data models. PIM for Retail has an intuitive web-based interface, and also includes Stibo Systems' cloudbased PDS solution to facilitate onboarding of products, while maintaining retail data standards. The result is an easy-to-integrate, easy-to-use and customizable solution that enables resellers to focus on cross- and additional sales, instead of working with data collection and onboarding. The solution contains everything that retailers need, and nothing they don't.
PDS, Product Data Syndication, is the modern and smart approach to efficient import and export of product data. It enables a faster time to market for products, with increased data quality and improved communication opportunities between the parties.
Resellers and distributors often receive product data in the suppliers' own formats, and need to manually check, manage, approve and publish it, as part of the PIM (Product Information Management) process. Product Data Syndication simplifies and automates this process. With Stibo System's cloud-based PDS solution, suppliers can upload data in the format they choose (e.g. an Excel file over the web), and the recipient receives and approves the data by means of automatic mapping to their data model in the selected integration solution. The supplier only needs to map his data to the reseller's data model once, and then this match is reused for future transfers, creating a seamless process. Manufacturers and brand owners can use this to more efficiently get their data to their vendors, and as a retailer, the crucial time to market can be accelerated without losing quality and control. As a PDS user you can easily manage all your channels, whether it is suppliers or resellers.
