How does Open Datacheck work?

The manufacturer delivers his product master data including images and documents to Open Datacheck. These are checked by a powerful checking tool in accordance with the relevant industry quality guideline and the results of the check are communicated to the manufacturer in a comprehensible manner. The corresponding optimizations can then be made. Only after the manufacturer's approval are final visual inspections carried out by the Datacheck service team and the data then released to the wholesaler. Processes can also be optimized through direct connection to PIM systems. Marketing and sales documents, for example, can be provided to wholesale customers in PDF format.
