When two large companies merge, a number of different assets come together, from physical assets such as trucks or inventory to things like product information. Combining massive amounts of data can be a treacherous undertaking, but smart technology can ensure virtually effortless asset and process migration. Mydatamatcher, a tool from Mydatafactory, places the information sources side by side and is a crucial instrument for merging ERPs.
Mydatamatcher provides an overview of all an organization’s assets within a single data source. The software matches products in a catalog to products in the inventory system. For example, one organization may call a 3-cubic-meter container of asbestos “small” while the other considers that same container to be a “medium” size. Mydatamatcher compares products based on text and can recognize that these containers are actually the same. The software is able to utilize all data sources to compare every asset this way.
Once the merger is certain, you can begin matching your assets. Mydatamatcher proposes matches from all the different ERPs, which can then be checked by an internal project team of product and data experts before being sent to the head office for approval. The software can save you the immense headache of having to deal with conflicting or duplicate information.
Ensure your merger is off to a great start with matching data. Contact us today and we’ll show you how Mydatamatcher can make a difference to your company.
