In a perfect world…our internal product and pricing data would be up-to-date, accurate and centralized. All of our trading partners would have matching attributes and identical information on their end to eliminate order errors and improve marketing efforts. The sales process would flow quickly and seamlessly resulting in bottom-line benefits for everyone in the channel.
IDEA recently met up with industry expert Allen Ray, principal of Allen Ray Associates, to discuss how we can help make that world a reality for all members of the industry through data synchronization. In our discussion, Allen Ray emphasized ten reasons why you need to synchronize your data through IDEA to remain competitive in the marketplace today. The top three reasons are:
- Easy Adoption – IDEA’s first priority is to serve the industry – no matter the size of the company. So they help you every step of the way to make your transition painless and rewarding
- Minimal Investment – With IDEA, you can synchronize and centralize your data without investing in any new hardware or software.
- Reduced Labor Costs – By automating the transaction process, you eliminate labor-intensive manual tasks and minimize errors, thereby reducing time and costs throughout the supply network.
We want to help you take the next step toward achieving data synchronization no matter where you are in the process. To make this easier for you, IDEA developed a quick 5-step data sync plan to fit your needs.
