Advantage No. 2 – Machine-to-machine synchronization of current and accurate product data
Product data (technical characteristics, dimensions, ingredients, packaging information) is often fragmented through many organizational units within a company. They are often stored in different IT systems, repeated – more or less consistently – on several places, and, oftentimes, mutually contradictory. Providing trading partners with accurate product data becomes a real nightmare for people who need to collect it.
