Distribution

 

As a distributor, you are faced with a highly competitive marketplace, increased expectations from customers and an ever-increasing number of products to manage. To face these challenges, you need to empower your users by providing them with consistent and accurate data quickly so they can confidently drive your business.

Stibo Systems’ Master Data Management platform, STEP, enables you to fully unlock the value of your information by ensuring your data is available, clean, integrated and synchronized with both internal and external systems.

BENEFITS

 

EFFICIENTLY MANAGE YOUR DATA

Managing high volumes of information coming from suppliers can be extremely difficult, causing you to cope with erroneous or out-of-date information. With constant inventory and demand changes, using data stored in multiple systems can be cumbersome and costly.

  • Manage and categorize large numbers of SKUs
  • Conduct analyses to support key business decisions and collaboration with partners

PROVIDE COMPLETE AND CONSISTENT DATA

  • Create audit trails and easily track the change history of your enterprise data
  • Reduce risk due to changes in regulatory compliance
