What Axcite Product Management can do for you

The module ensures a much higher quality of master data by using a clear, unchangeable structure to manage the master data, which not only provides a better overview, it also makes it easier to manage. Managing master data needs to be – and can be easy.


Master data becomes less complex

The aim of the module is to conceal the complexity of master data from everyday Dynamics 365 users as far as possible, to ensure maximum data quality centrally and that products cannot be used before all the required master data is in place.


Central management – local maintenance

By sharing data across companies, the system ensures data is centrally managed, while allowing it to be maintained locally in each company.


Extension of standard functionality

Most people are familiar with the challenge of managing their master data. Product master data presents the biggest challenge. In Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management, Microsoft introduces a division into products shared across all companies, and released products that are maintained in each set of accounts. Axcite Product Management should be seen as an extension of this functionality.


User-friendly automation

The module creates two new concepts, segments and classification. Each product has to be assigned to a segment and a classification when created. Advanced templates are maintained in each set of accounts for each combination of segment and classification. A number of field values are defined in the template, so they can be filled out automatically upon release. This makes the system very user-friendly, as only two fields have to be defined when a product is created.


Product life cycle approach improves data quality

The system’s product life cycle also helps to ensure high-quality with minimum effort. With this function, you can ensure that fields not maintained in a template – such as cost price and weight – are also specified before the product is put into use. When a product moves on in its PLC, for example to phase-out, you can again activate a range of automatic actions, such as resetting buffer stocks and blocking purchases.


Continuous data synchronisation

Product Management Extensions also contain a function for continually synchronising data. A change to an advanced template can thus be synchronised with all goods covered by the template.  The corrections can be carried out automatically, or following a review process. This avoids relatively time-consuming maintenance of product data.
