Product Master Data

Streamline cross-business supply chain and financial transactions by using blockchain as the source of truth for product master data.

Problem

Product discrepancies = operational inefficiencies

Cross-business transactions that reference product master data require clean, reliable, and up to date data. When a manufacturer adds or modifies information about a product, this information must reach all industry participants instantly and accurately to prevent any disruption in operations. Master data mismatches may result in supply chain or financial transactions being rejected by the receiving party because they don’t have the latest information. In addition, different companies may identify the same product with different identifiers resulting in errors and delays. Blockchain helps companies and industries synchronize master data via a single source of truth.

  • Fragmented product identifiers
  • Mismatch of product identifiers
  • Lack of timely communication of product identifier updates
