Comarch Master Data Management, our cloud-based GDSN certified data pool, allows the user to organize the process of exchanging and maintaining data. It eliminates chaotic email or paper communication that imposes double data entry. The use of electronic forms and workflow processes integrated with master data systems not only eliminates the need for MDM employees to repeat data entry, but it also allows the information to be validated at the beginning of the process so that the user can unify MDM processes on different systems.
Comarch Master Data Management is a GDSN (Global Data Synchronization Network) certified data pool guaranteeing that users can synchronize master data securely, based on GS1 standards, with partners worldwide. GDSN supports accurate, real-time data sharing and trade item updates among subscribed trading partners.
This means organizations can be sure that, thanks to a cloud-based solution, when one of their suppliers or retailers updates his database, their own database is simultaneously updated. Everyone has access to the same continuously refreshed data. This automatic and efficient exchange helps in meeting the demand of today's data-hungry consumers.
The cloud-based solution enables producers and distributors to register their products while assigning and updating hundreds of attributes divided into several categories via direct integration with internal IT systems, file upload or web-based applications. The selection of parameters is adapted to the requirements of your clients. The solution also provides diversification of parameters into those that are general and available to all users (e.g. ingredients), and those that are dedicated (e.g. prices) and visible only to selected customers. The solution allows the use of pre-existing attributes for similar products, and supports multimedia (e.g. images). The validation rules guarantee quick access to current and verified information about products.
Comarch Master Data Management enables vendors’ data to be kept up to date. Starting from the on-boarding process, correct data entry is crucial for efficient collaboration. To update data, or add any supplier master data, you need to simply send a notification to your suppliers. Reminder functions ensure that your suppliers add data within a specific period of time. Updated or confirmed master data are automatically added to the system.
Different methods of data entry (e.g. web form, upload from file, or EDI message), tailored to the capabilities and preferences of your company. Data may be exchanged both via the GDSN network with other certified data pools worldwide in a standardized way, and directly if both sides agree on it. Comarch provides encrypted data transmission supporting various communication protocols (e.g. SFTP, AS2, FTP/VPN and WebService).
We provide document format mapping for converting your company’s documents to formats appropriate for your partners, and vice versa (e.g. XML, EDIFACT).
The user has access to the application that allows a quick preview of the current status of processed documents, allowing a rapid response in the event of erroneous and lost documents.
Comarch Master Data Management provides the functionality of enriching and refining data – a valuable asset for any modern enterprise – on the recipient side. Data provided by the vendor may not include information required by your internal systems (e.g. internal product codes). The notification functionality reminds the relevant departments to fill in the data before integrating them into internal systems.
The data validation process is different in each organization. Thus, we offer a flexible workflow engine which enables to individually define the vendor and product data approval process. This may be executed simultaneously in several departments or in the correct order, and be defined by a particular set of attributes.
