At its core, PDC is a fully web-based application. It houses all product data in its central repository providing users a single source for all information pertaining to their products. It allows users to leverage existing data by giving them the ability to import product data from spreadsheets, CSV files as well as other data sources and formats. Users can also create product information directly through the user interface. Products can be related to one another and images, PDF’s and other non-structured data can be attached to those products.
All product information is accessed via role-based security meaning that all users are provided a user name and password that, in conjunction with their user profile, identifies their privileges. This allows a system administrator to mandate who can view and work on what.
Regardless of the security privileges you possess, the information you see should be the same for everyone. The challenge is to synchronize all your data internally. Once this is accomplished synchronizing your data externally with data pools, trading partners and other systems becomes effortless.
PDC allows users to create custom or industry standard maintenance hierarchies. This is how users can categorize their products. PDC gives users the ability to quickly locate products with the use of it’s powerful parametric search capability or through Google-like key word searches. This allows users to manage a single or group of products quickly. Once a product or group of products, are identified users are given a host of powerful editing features making it easy to accurately manage your product information.
PDC also can incorporate rules and specific data governance to make sure of the data’s accuracy. It follows a number of best practices approaches to managing data making sure your product data is created in an accurate and timely manner and stays that way over time.
Once you’ve defined the rules associated with creating and managing your product information, and then have it centralized, you are ready to use it. PDC gives users a variety of ways to package and export their data. These exports can be saved for repeated use and can be scheduled as needed. Our service engineers can work with you to create custom exports to address internal system, trading partner or data pools needs. We encourage you to contact us so we can determine together how PDC can help your organization.
