Depreciable products, a good purchasing strategy, evaluable material groups, cost transparency and efficient digital procurement with e-procurement systems are just a few purchasing tasks/goals that often cannot be adequately implemented due to a lack of data quality.
Our MDM Excellence Workshop for Engineering provides you with an overview of the value and potential of your material and product master data, especially in purchasing. Learn how to cleanse and standardize your data and maintain it sustainably through flexible processes. This is the only way you can reduce procurement costs, automate processes and lower your inventories in the future.
Many purchasing departments face the same challenges when optimizing their data master data. Which ones are you facing?
Poor data quality often results in purchasing having to access data that is related to a specific supplier. This means that the purchasing portfolio is not transparent and materials and products supplied cannot be compared with one another.
Good data quality and structure enables you to analyze and bundle your purchasing portfolio according to matching criteria. This makes suppliers transparent, allowing you to compare all sourced materials and products by supplier. Comparability enables you to prepare and execute tenders more effectively.
Your material group code is insufficiently structured and in addition, you lack transparency in the data because there aren’t uniform designations. Thus, you have to face the problem of lacking a suitable basis for strategic initiatives and/or for negotiations.
Create a consistent structure for your data by deriving an industry standard such as ECLASS. You receive maximum data transparency, which allows to you to perform a clear spend analysis and act strategically. Clear definitions enable a clean maintenance of the future material groups.
Insufficient data quality from supplier data and poor onboarding prevent Purchasing from fully exploiting its potential. Digital procurement processes via supplier platforms, B2B marketplaces (such as Ariba) and catalog systems are not fully utilized due to a lack of acceptance. Your purchaser invests a lot of time in processing supplier data.
Today, supplier portals offer the possibility for suppliers to maintain their own data The use of this portal and cloud-based e-procurement solutions improve data quality, ensures transparency, and increases the level of automation for your procurement processes. You should exploit this potential of relief for purchasers.
