Intelligent master data management with synfoxx/p
In large companies, the creation of new master data is a complex process with many participants. Marketing, production, quality assurance, logistics, sales and controlling - these areas among others must contribute information or check compliance with standards and guidelines.
Why incorrect master data costs you a lot of money
On the other hand, time is often of the essence - the "time to market" should be as short as possible. Market share is at stake should the competition introduce a comparable product first.
eMail and Excel – the miraculous multiplication of the Product Master
Many companies have a central data sheet with all the information relevant to a new product, the so-called "Product Master". This file, often created in Excel, contains all the questions that need to be clarified, broken down by department.
Departments in companies can be geographically widely distributed - so the master is sent by mail to the responsible departments with a request for completion. Since not all entries have to be in a certain order and to save time, copies of the master are occasionally sent out before the actual master is back with the additions. In corporations usually to larger distribution lists...
1 Master, 2 Master, 3 Master...
The consequences are: frequent inquiries, delayed processing, frustrated master data managers who have to laboriously try to consolidate all of the different "master" files. However, since marketing and sales are pushing, the new product is often launched, even if unanswered questions remain and important information is not available.
