Making product data flow through the international supply chain
At KOIOS Master Data we work hard for manufacturers, distributors and end-buyers to remove time and cost throughout the supply chain, and enable businesses and economies to be more productive. To do this we have created a suite of cloud based software products that enable organisations to create, share and use ISO 8000 compliant product specifications quickly and easily, with all trusted supply chain partners, regardless of language constraints.
Manufacturers will increase sales by reaching a larger market, and enabling their distributors to put the most complete, accurate and timely product data in front of their customers. Importantly, the specifications use authoritative identifiers and product data provenance to protect manufacturers from potential counterfeit goods and supply chain fraud.
Buyers will gain cost-savings and operational efficiency by simplifying how product data is sourced. Buyers can purchase legitimate quality goods with confidence from manufacturers and distributors who use authoritative identifiers and product data provenance. Buyers can reduce exposure to fraudulent supply chain activities and the risk of purchasing counterfeit goods or goods from an inappropriate point of origin.
