Product Information Management

Deliver a better overall customer experience by creating one single source of product information

In order to create a perfect overall experience that sets you apart from the competition, you need to be able to serve the customer with accurate product information across every channel. Rich and accurate Product information need to be available in every customer touchpoint, from the e-commerce site to the electronic price tag in the brick and mortar store, from the app to the mail-order catalog, and in the Point of Sale system. Being able to quickly populate these touchpoints with rich and accurate product data is essential. That’s where Squadra’s knowledge of Product Information Management (PIM) comes in. With PIM, you create one single version of the truth that provides reliable data for every system and business process.

Master Data Management

Build a Firm, Reliable Data Foundation for your Business

The amount of data in companies is growing rapidly, as is the amount of systems and processes that need to use that information. Therefore companies often face challenges due to complex system landscapes, scattered data (silos), data entry in multiple processes and applications, lack of integrated processes, no clear data definitions, limited mastering on data, uncontrolled data changes, lack of data ownership and so on. This leads to all kinds of data quality issues like inaccurate, inconsistent, duplicated and fragmented data with a huge impact on the business. This results in mistakes, a lack of trust in the system, lots of expensive and time-consuming manual work, supply chain inefficiencies, customer loyalty suffering, bad financial consolidation and ineffective marketing efforts. MDM guards and streamlines the way master data is entered, processed, guarded, and changed within the company, resulting in one single version of the truth and enabling different departments and systems to stay synced regarding their crucial data.
