ComBinder PIM use cases
The ComBinder PIM is used in combination with an already existing store and enterprise resource planning system (WAWI) and corresponding advertising material is created with it. The systems exchange transaction data directly. Updates of the products are made from the ComBinder PIM or WAWI. The derivations of advertising media takes place via the ComBinder.
The initial filling of the store system with product data can be done in two ways in this use case.
- Option A: The WAWI system fills the store with all media data
- Option B: The product data is provided by the ComBinder
With ComBinder PIM, catalogs from multiple suppliers can be consolidated. For this purpose, the electronic catalogs of the suppliers are read in and merged in ComBinder. Two types of merging can be realized:
- Horizontal multiple suppliers catalog
- Vertical multiple suppliers catalog
The consolidation of data has the following characteristics:
- Classification of products
The store system works self-sufficiently.
This use case primarily concerns manufacturers of various products, where the capture of product data (image, text, price, …) is done step by step or by transfer from another system. The import of additional supplier catalogs, to supplement the assortment, is possible without further ado.
