Data consistency reduces product time-to-market by 60 percent

In 2009, Office Depot was changing at an accelerated pace. Customers were demanding increasingly detailed product information but, since this came from numerous departments as well as third-party suppliers, data lacked any consistency. Staff were spending too long inputting product data and the time-to-market for new products was too high.

The deployment of a Master Data Management (MDM) solution by Stibo Systems has created an environment where perfectly-formatted data only needs to be inputted once, regardless of the source. After the implementation, Office Depot's continuing benefits included:

  • New product time-to-market reduced by 60%
  • The likelihood of input errors has been reduced
  • Freedom to look to the future and add more client data to the MDM environment.
