Unified product catalog
Marand's unified product catalog (UPC) is a master data management system for enterprise service, product, offering, and price data. UPC represents a single point of truth and enables companies to implement a catalog-driven approach to IT systems development. The product catalog is designed to fit our clients' needs & supports various verticals, such as: telecommunications, finance, insurance, retail, transport & logistics, energy & utilities.
Business applications comprising enterprise IT systems all require access to product data. Examples of such applications are order management, contract management, CRM, billing, self-care portals, end-user applications, and omnichannel e-commerce. However, product data is often fragmented and siloed in various departmental subsystems.
Manual data management is costly, time consuming, inefficient, and error-prone, which leads to poor customer & employee experience."
The product catalog stores & allows access to all product & service data from a single database, for the entire IT system. The catalog is fully adjustable to the content & integration requirements of any company. All adjustments are user configurable, which decreases time-to-market and significantly reduces risk as no code adaptation is required to support new products & services.
Product catalog model
The main building blocks, comprising the product model, are resource, service, product, product offering, and price. These building blocks are parameterized to define their semantic. They can be interconnected using relationships to form composite structures, e.g. add-on services and service bundles. For simpler and faster access, elements can be categorized. Categories are user-configurable as well.
