Exceed the limits of product data sharing to gain a competitive advantage

What are the extended features of Comarch MDM?

Comarch Master Data Management allows companies to effectively optimize their product data sharing processes in the entire supply chain. The data itself can be exchanged both via the GDSN network or directly between data providers and recipients. In practice, however, only the second scenario enables a set of advanced functionalities that provide data-driven enterprises with a competitive advantage.

By using an MDM solution delivered by a single technology provider, both data sources and data recipients can gain additional benefits resulting from global interoperability and enhanced business performance. Plus, each group gets instant access to an environment that can be easily configured to fit their needs. 

The Offer Tool

Using the Comarch-to-Comarch model allows users to drive better business results thanks to an offer tool based on the call for tenders and referencing requests functionalities. Data recipients can use them to gather information about the products available on the market, while suppliers can include more of their products in their partner’s offers, as well as inform them about articles that are about to hit the market.

CALL FOR TENDERS / PRESELECTION 
Market research and collection of offers

Our system enables buyers to send inquiries, collect and manage product offers, as well as find specific products in the directory encompassing all trading partners. Once a query is sent to those suppliers who use Comarch MDM about a particular product group, they can respond by informing buyers about which products they can provide. 

An inquiry can be created for a particular product or a group of products. And because our solution allows users to compare the suppliers' proposals easily, the entire decision process is significantly improved.

REFERENCING REQUESTS
The exchange of complete product cards - including the prices

Thanks to responses sent by suppliers in the call for tenders process, a retailer will be able to choose products that meet their requirements best - and then, a referencing request will be created. 

Later on, in response to that request, a retailer will receive a complete product card that will include much more detailed information on a given product, including the price.

Making adjustments to meet your specific business needs

All of the modern standards, regulations, and policies - as well as our needs and objectives - affect the way we do business. Comarch follows this philosophy by providing an advanced, flexible platform that can be customized to meet any product data management needs. Thus, Comarch MDM makes it possible to address any requirement that is crucial to maintaining good business relations with all partners. 


Customized Workflow

Of course, one fixed solution cannot fit all companies' needs - especially when it comes to data verification and various approval processes that are different for each organization.

Thus, we offer a flexible workflow engine that enables any retailer to individually define vendor and product data approval processes. This can be specified by a particular set of attributes and then executed simultaneously in several departments or in a particular order.

  • We provide an intuitive & flexible interface that users can adjust to their roles, duties, and responsibilities
  • We reduce the number of data input errors and enhance the user experience by adopting a more natural workflow
  • You can create custom layouts to make sure that your data will be presented to the right users and for the right purpose
  • Organize your product data for quick access, management, and maintenance by putting it into various categories

Document Management

Dedicated Validations

Comarch MDM allows users to apply dedicated validation rules in line with their customer’s needs. Therefore, they can verify any parameter and its compliance with the company's business requirements.

Validations that are against the retailer’s expectations can be introduced on the data source side. It means that data providers are requested to complete the fields required by the retailer and that the recipients will receive precisely the information they need - presented in a correct format and structure. 

  • Develop your own rules to perform additional validation for particular compliance purposes
  • Our smart user interface will guide you through the process of uploading data into the system
  • Built-in support and validation of various standards (e.g., GS1 GDSN) and regulations (e.g., EU Regulation 1169/2011 and the FDA UDI rules)

Multi-ERP Integration

Data Enrichment

Comarch MDM provides buyers with an opportunity to enrich and refine item records whenever product data provided by the source does not include information required by data recipients’ internal systems (e.g. internal product codes, custom attributes). Thus, our product allows them to easily complete all the missing elements.

  • Apply new attributes to enrich your data with additional product information
  • Decide the attributes to specific item categories
  • Organize the attributes and make them available to specific users by defining brand-new sections in your records
