An online shop in 16 languages, with 1.2 million products and 500,000 images, is now managed from one central database in STEP
Laren, Netherlands, 3 July 2015 – Stibo Systems, the global leader in Multidomain Master Data Management (MDM) solutions, today announced that its STEP MDM solution will be implemented at Kramp Group BV, Europe’s largest technical wholesaler to the agricultural sector.
Five solutions will be replaced with the standard solution STEP MDM from Stibo Systems.
This implementation is of strategic importance for Kramp. The goal is quickly to gather, maintain and publish all the information on its 1.2 million products, along with 500,000 images and drawings, in one centralised database. The organisation’s mission statement is “it’s that easy”, and Kramp wants to make the lives of its customers, business partners and suppliers both easier and more efficient.
For Kramp, an important reason for partnering with Stibo Systems is to decrease the time-to-market and become even more customer-oriented.
