Innovation and NPD professionals in food and beverage can automate supplier product information collection using a cloud-based solution.
ARCUS® PIM provides a central product database that allows innovation professionals to collect, approve and manage large volumes of product data and specifications. Product questionnaires are tailored to a company’s requirements, and suppliers directly enter vital product information such as allergens, ingredients, nutritional data and pricing information. ARCUS® PIM can also be integrated with third-party ERP, recipe management and menu production systems commonly used in the food and beverage industry, meaning that there is no need to re-key any product specifications that have been entered by suppliers.
"The main pain points ARCUS® has helped us with is that all of the suppliers can be in one place and every department from our company can log can and check the information that they are after."Maria Loftus, Senior Technical Manager, Fridays
Domino’s Pizza’s technical team wanted to create a fully auditable system, in which all product information could be stored in one central location.
Before the implementation of ARCUS® PIM, most product information was held in silos throughout different sites. This resulted in a lack of visibility over the product approval process, and also meant that the other departments involved were not collaborating with the technical team effectively.
Using ARCUS® PIM, Domino’s Pizza is now able to tailor product questionnaires to their requirements, ensuring they are collecting the information they require as a business. Additionally, the cloud-based nature of the software has provided all key stakeholders with a central product database, increasing confidence across the company in the real-time accuracy of product specifications.
