Elpress is compiling product information about its 6,000 products in the C4 PIM system.
The project will initially collate the products in Elpress’ standard product range in the PIM system.
“It involves everything from article data, images, documents, manuals, dimensioned sketches, certificates and instruction films, all information that has previously been located in different systems and is now being gathered in one single system,” says Katarina Forsberg at Elpress, who is in charge of the project.
In the longer term, a joint product information system will provide more secure, more effective processes for sharing information.
“Version management, for example,means that our customers automatically have access to the latest version of information associated with a product,” says Katarina.
She believes that simplified procedures in connection with updates of data to the industry organisation, as well as wholesalers and suppliers, represent another advantage.
“Of course, the system also makes it easier to introduce new products into our portfolio. This means that we can quickly accommodate changing and constantly increasing challenges and expectations from our customers,” observes Katarina.
C4 Contexture is the supplier of the PIM system.
“We compared two different suppliers with similar functions in their systems and opted for C4, who are closest geographically and who feel understand our customer-specific needs,” says Katarina.
