1. Modernizing Master Data Management for centralized product information with well-defined taxonomy
We aligned all product classifications with a centralized taxonomy to enhance the client’s business process efficiency. The information was then relayed into Oracle’s Product Data Hub, ensuring that the product data hub remained the single source of product information across the enterprise. We modified the operational attributes using item templates and status as critical drivers for product information infused in the PDH. We also created a three-plus level centralized taxonomy for all the products with 500+ attributes, lookups, and rules-compliant product information.
Finally, we migrated an inventory of more than 4,50,000 master items from EBS to the new Oracle’s product data hub with 30+ business rules set to boost product data governance.
2. Building customized OIC integrations for PDH and seamless integration of PLM and ERP solutions.
To ensure streamlined data updates and transfer, we seamlessly integrated the client's PLM and BPM with ERP solutions. This integration helped the client to gain higher visibility over the business operations and enable efficient process management to reduce costs by minimizing manual interventions. In addition, we developed customized OIC integrations for PDH to augment the swift transfer of product information from various third-party applications. To ease the item creation and maintenance process for listings, we leveraged Smartsheets (import maps) and assigned publishing capabilities to launch/update new products on their websites in the US and Canada.
3. Leveraging PIXL for E-commerce Syndication
To solve the e-commerce syndication challenge, we configured and integrated Birlasoft’s proprietary PIXL solution. This solution was aimed at creating a common platform for the client to publish and update product information across various e-commerce platforms. We leveraged PIXL capabilities to assist the client manage product syndication to its online sales partners such as Amazon, Wayfair, and Home Depot. This solution also reduced the significant effort that the client utilized to consolidate product data into data pools for the sales channels. The data could now be synced effortlessly according to the rich data product models and fit into different input formats with each e-commerce platform.
