Water Quality Innovator to Oversee COE for Nine Independent Business Groups and PIMs
– Consolidates and Governs Data for Greater Organizational Efficiencies
Atlanta, GA, November 1, 2016 – Stibo Systems, the global leader in multidomain Master Data Management (MDM) solutions, today announced that Hach, a global manufacturer and distributer of analytical instruments, software and reagents used to test the quality of water, has chosen Stibo Systems’ Master Data Management platform STEP to create an Enterprise PIM Center of Excellence (COE) for participating business groups. Using Stibo Systems’ MDM solution, Hach will integrate and centralize product information management (PIM) solutions across the business groups in just 24 months, so relevant data, services and processes can be shared among each while maintaining their autonomy for their marketing initiatives.
“We created the Enterprise Center of Excellence to provide relevant data and services to all the participating business groups, so they can use utilize valuable data assets from one central system and optimize business efficiencies,” said Stephen Kennedy, Manager, Data Quality, Hach. “Using STEP, the COE helps all groups to streamline marketing efforts and increase overall customer satisfaction.”
Prior to the COE, independent business groups each managed their own unique product data in disparate systems, which prohibited the other business groups from leveraging shared processes. The STEP MDM platform allows all participating groups to have synergy among each other’s product data while maintaining autonomy in marketing and without interfering with the other groups.
“Manufacturers are continually challenged to create better customer experiences, and to use technology to uncover hidden opportunities that can create better relationships and reduce costs,” said Todd Callen, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Stibo Systems. “Using STEP, Hach and other participating groups are now able to link key product information to enable a more satisfying customer engagement and to improve operational processes around managing product data. We are thrilled they selected STEP to manage such a mission-critical initiative, and we look forward to helping them utilize their product data to improve value and ROI.”
For more than 60 years, Hach has been committed to ensuring water quality for people around the world. To deliver on its mission, Hach develops products and solutions that are faster, greener and more informative with outstanding technical expertise and unsurpassed customer partnerships.
