What is ECLASS and how does it work?


WHY ECLASS? 5 REASONS IN BRIEF

The ECLASS master-data standard enjoys worldwide acceptance, and is used both inside companies and when dealing with customers and suppliers. It thus strengthens the competitive position and future viability of everyone involved.

  • REVENUE GROWTH: Exploit significant sales potentials through electronic catalogs and virtual marketplaces in which your products can be instantly found.
  • COST REDUCTION: Rationalize purchasing, inventory management, and distribution by combining volume orders and streamlining portfolios.
  • TIME SAVINGS: Handle procurement and supplier-management functions more effectively, and strengthen operational processes.
  • PRODUCTIVITY: Improve performance, ROI and time to market through the use of continuous processes, automated interfaces and standardized product information.
  • SECURE PLANNING: Improve your basis for strategic decision-making by using data that is harmonized, meaningfully processed, and exchanged with customers and partners.
