If you work in the service & installation industry, you have to deal with articles and associated article information from various suppliers daily. To keep item management simple, you use the information available in the 2BA data pool. The use of this data pool has several advantages. We are happy to explain it to you.
1. Correct article information and price lists by 2BA Unifeed
One of the essential advantages of the 2BA data pool is that you always have the most up-to-date technical product and article data at hand. Manufacturers, suppliers, and wholesalers supply the article data in 2BA’s central file and update it if it changes. This delivery takes place via uniform files, which are then checked and classified in the data pool according to the international ETIM guidelines. As a result, working with wrong, too low prices is a thing of the past, and you can easily retain the margin on your jobs.
2. Save time updating item information
You may have guessed it, but in addition to working with the most up-to-date data, it saves much time to get this correct data. If you use our service and maintenance software, the 2BA data pool is fully integrated. Via your system, you can easily find the necessary information via the extensive search system of 2BA Unifeed. Therefore, long searches in various catalogs, lists, and websites for current information and prices are no longer part of your work.
3. Insight into stocks and delivery times
In addition to general product and article information such as price and quantities in a package, it is also possible to view the supplier’s current stock and delivery times. Items that you use often and (temporarily) have a longer delivery time are identified and ordered early. This way, you will not run out of stock, and you will not have to postpone or cancel your jobs.
4. Early identification of expired items
Another advantage of article management with the 2BA data pool is that expired articles are identified early. During the design phase, you only work with deliverable items and the correct data to avoid surprises during the purchasing stage. Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) makes ordering and processing purchase orders electronically in your system more accessible, and failure costs are reduced.
