It is important for your customers to have access to accurate product data. Imagine this. Your customer downloads information from your website or private portal. On the other hand, your field sales team delivers relevant information via email. A couple of months have passed, and your customer is still working on their design. But, your product has already evolved and your team has already uploaded new product data.
What could be the problem with this scenario? When you send out emails about the change in product data, your customer was busy with other activities and the notification is buried in their inbox. They will continue to work with outdated product data, wasting their time and effort on the design that they have to rework. Your customer will be angry because of the delays and additional costs caused by revisions.
How will this affect your organization? Your customers will lose their trust in you and may even sue you for the damages. A simple inaccuracy in product data will embarrass your company. As compensation, you may be forced to give discounts and free product samples that will gradually reduce or eliminate your profit margins. This scenario occurs quite frequently in both small and large businesses. That’s why an effective product information management solution is essential.
