Product Summary

 

NCR POWER+ MDM - Retail and Distribution Industries 

 

 

As the complexity of food distribution continues to grow the need for reliable—and consistent—data becomes increasingly more important.

 

 

No matter what systems you use to run your business, if the data within these systems is not accurate, you’re going to run into problems. Many companies today still operate their business within silos that are not integrated, which means that even if data is right in one system, it may be wrong in another. This means managers can’t rely on the accuracy of what’s being reported. And, that’s why you need NCR Power+ MDM. 

 

NCR Power+ MDM serves as a centralized repository for all your business data, resolving and synchronizing data across your organization. The solution includes both predefined and customizable data management policies that help you continuously improve data quality over time. NCR Power+ MDM also includes online and data-staging input facilities, along with all NCR enterprise platform services such as customized workflow, data synchronization, logging and reporting. This means all systems to get a complete and accurate view of item definitions, inventory levels, order details, forecasts and more.  

 

 

A business case for proper data governance 

 

You may not realize it, but something as simple as an inaccurate product weight can cost a lot of money. If you’re a distributor, an incorrectly high product weight may cause you to improperly load the warehouse, load fewer cases onto a truck, and ultimately expend higher transportation costs than what is necessary. Getting this data right could mean more efficient warehouse slotting and truckload cubing, thus saving your company thousands of dollars.

 

Proper data governance not only helps you get your data accurate, it also resolves and synchronizes data across the organization so that the data is right everywhere.

 

This means more informed decision-making and improved reporting. NCR Power+ MDM also integrates data feeds from customers and suppliers, along with GSDN compliance, which enables faster time-to-market of new items and facilitates accurate data exchange with trading partners. The solution also complies with Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) standards.

 

  • Improve decision-making with accurate business forecasting
  • Reduce errors across systems by using standard descriptions and product identifiers
  • Drive sales by delivering product information seamlessly through existing sales systems
  • Quickly find answers about product safety, proper handling, and storage temperatures
  • Works with multiple client applications to ensure the data across all applications is updated in real time

 

 

A closer look at perpetual inventory 

 

NCR Power+ MDM includes online and data-staging input facilities that prevent inaccurate data from ever getting into the system. NCR Data Staging is a workflow-driven application that enables users to review all incoming data from multiple sources prior to approving into the Power+ MDM system. There are customized workflow steps by user and function, along with automated email notifications and escalation alerts. NCR Data Staging also includes integration with standardized global data pools such as GDSN or GS1.

 

 

Technical highlights
