Solteq Plc and SOK have agreed on the development of a Master Data Management (MDM) solution for product information, as part of comprehensive IT system development project at S Group.
With this solution, S Group will streamline its product information life cycle management and will ensure that all product information is up-to-date, enriched and usable in all channels. The solution will collect product data from different sources and ensure that the correct information is available during all the phases of retail process. The benefits of the renewed MDM solution reach from sourcing to search engine optimization and from marketing to assortment planning.
High-quality and up-to-date product information is in key role in retail whether the customer is served in a brick-and-mortar shop or in an online store. The MDM solution will be utilized in retail processes regardless of the touchpoint of the customers, i.e. in brick-and-mortar stores, online and mobile. From an S Group customer point of view, the MDM solution means more accurately planned assortment, real-time and reliable availability data and more versatile images.
– We wanted a partner, in whose expertise in the area of product information management, we have a full confidence on. We already have a long history together working with Solteq’s MDM experts, so I’m feeling confident taking also the next step with them, says Jari Muhonen, the CIO at SOK.
Timo Kavetvuo, Director in charge of Master Data Management solutions at Solteq happily states:
– It's great to be able to join this project with such an essential part of the digital commerce solution to SOK, one of the most significant retailers in Finland. We are excited and proud that our persistent work and profound expertise are now bearing fruit.
