DYNAMIC VIEW CONTROLS
Controllable catalog views across the enterprise, dynamically created by user credentials, present content in the right language, currency and supplier segmentation. Catalog views are established by purchasing managers who associate the correct catalogs and contract files with the right purchasing organization.
EFFICIENT CATALOG MANAGEMENT
Approved catalogs can easily be transferred to any existing purchasing or procurement system. Catalog Manager validates individual products and contract prices. Validation rules ensure compliance with unit-of-measure standards, classifications, and other required data elements. Catalog Manager also promotes the monitoring and approval of changes made to products and contract prices, eliminating the need for in-house resources to research changes made by suppliers.
Eliminate the need to manually manage multiple catalogs and thousands of line items. Simplify updating and delivering catalogs and associated contract prices to one or more procurement systems using multiple standards. Catalog Manager handles all the synchronization, maintenance, and versioning while providing tools that convert units-of-measure (UOMs) and classifications to the procurement system’s required format.
Seamlessly integrate with any supplier’s catalog management system so that product and price changes are automatically updated and reported.
TRACK PRODUCT & PRICE CHANGES
Catalog Manager highlights product and price changes for effective management of the catalog maintenance process.
