Data maintenance

icon

Product database

The item master data in the ERP system is generally insufficient for customer-oriented, market- and media-specific product communication. Therefore follows the additional maintenance of product features, views, and product relationships in the PIM system. Mandatory fields and inheritance functions can be used for efficient data maintenance.

Media Asset Management

The integrated Media Asset Management (MAM) stores and categorizes photos, graphics and symbols as well as documents, videos and CAD drawings – all in media-neutral format. From a source format, the integrated graphics and video converter, or alternatively Adobe Photoshop, automatically generates media-compatible output formats. With the video converter all common video formats can be created and video sequences can be cut.

Text management

Texts are captured media-neutrally and managed granularly, so that they can be reused many times over. This keeps the maintenance effort as low as possible. The variety of texts can be structured and managed by means of categories and versions in all languages of the world.

This also includes dynamic categories such as trade fairs, new products, jobs, press and contact, which can be expanded to suit individual customers.

Provision of data

icon

Data export XML / Excel

One of the most important tasks in marketing is the provision of data for online catalogs, shops, third-party systems, trade partners and portals. For this purpose, in the crossbase database electronic catalogs are created with a customer-specific catalog range and a price list. The mapping of the fields to the contents in the database can be defined individually depending on the format or classification.

API server

The crossbase API Server (Application Programming Interface) offers a flexible way to access data in the crossbase database in third-party systems. These accesses remain independent of changes to the underlying data model. With relatively little effort, software developers can write programs that retrieve data from the crossbase database.
