Reduction of failure costs
Wrong orders are reduced to a minimum, which leads to direct cost reductions.
Increase in the efficiency of the communication (internal and external)
Standardised, automated, direct coupling and/or processing in internal automation. Therefore fewer actions are necessary and faster acting is possible. Time gained and thus savings!
Heightens the information level to customers
Up to date, complete and correct product data (throughout the entire supply chain). Quality, service and fewer errors!
Besides reduction in failure costs also reductions are possible in systems for stock management and order processing.
Possibility to re-use information
Data only have to be entered once and can be used for multiple purposes. Efficient management of product databases!
Uniform information flow
Product information is provided only once by the manufacturer. Since the product information comes directly from the manufacturer, it is always updated, complete and correct.
Optimization of catalogue management
Data are media neutral and can be used for different lay-outs (catalogue software). This leads to time savings, less corrections and lower production costs!
In the future only a few standard interfaces are needed for the exchange of product data. Continuous adaptation of systems to new demands are no longer needed!
Through ETIM it is possible to organize information in a targeted way: product information can thus be emphasized with texts with a specific marketing cut. The classification makes statistical analysis possible. Turnover and strategy analyzes are thus possible at the product class level.
