Chief Information & Logistics Officer di Came Group Spa
I assisted and coordinated the introduction of EKR PIM in Came Group from day one.
It is not always an easy task. In Came Group EKR PIM is an interdepartmental project and therefore brings out the organizational complexity of each different department. He could drown at any time … but we’re doing it!
The key advantages of the system? First of all have a single repository ordered for all the info. Then, clearly define the names and surnames of the managers. Third, the updates: when a datum changes, it varies in any media.
In the initial phase there was also a review of the data structures, EKR PIM eliminated the duplication of some categories and caused the redefinition of others: the appetite comes with eating and we took the opportunity to improve our information !
After catalogs and manuals, we have extended EKR PIM to the web world. We are exploiting the advantages of an effective Product Information Management to turn ours into a real product site.
EKR PIM takes away the individual’s ownership on some business processes in favor of sharing, and for me it is a great advantage. If the person holding that piece of information is missing, the others cannot go on, you have to wait for them to come back from illness or holidays because the necessary data are in his hands. EKR PIM instead leads to work for the company, not for the individual.
I recommend EKR PIM as a solution for the single source of truth (the only source of correct information, D.R.R.) to those who have the desire and interest to really put order on the flow of information in the company, dividing it between the various managers.
