Well Positioned for the Future by Fully Utilising Digital Solutions
Ottobock has set itself the goal of driving digitalisation and automation throughout the entire company. Since data handling is particularly sensitive in the med-tech industry, the market leader commissioned dotSource with the challenging task of implementing a MDM system. This would enable the digitalisation and automation of complex data workflows.
MDM System Implemented in Record Time
Ottobock was looking for a scalable solution with a high degree of standardisation that could be continuously developed without considerable programming effort. The MDM system by the renowned Danish provider Stibo Systems came out on top. The certified MDM experts at dotSource impressed Ottobock with their solution approach: the replacement of the product master data creation process in the existing ERP tool and its optimisation using Stibo's MDM system. Regardless of the tight schedule, the project was successfully completed.
Data Quality and Automation as Success Factors
In the med-tech industry, products and materials must be purchased, processed, stored and distributed in accordance with the highest standards. To carefully adhere to all these rules and regulations, ensuring an extremely high level of data consistency is crucial. Accordingly, the various validation options provided by a modern MDM system like the one from Stibo Systems are exceptionally important for companies such as Ottobock.
With dotSource, we have a reliable partner at our side. Together, we have created a central platform for managing and distributing high-quality master data that can also meet future requirements.
