How Does eCatalogue Work?

A powerful and extensive catalogue management tool for advanced catalogue management. The solution provides a comprehensive, portal-led environment for product and price data collection and distribution. Supplier catalogues can be integrated in a secure environment, either directly by a supplier or by the buyer using the catalogue.

As with all ELCOM products, ease of use is at the forefront during development. This sophisticated solution enables the buyer to define the criteria that must be met by suppliers when uploading data into the catalogue, resulting in improved data quality with virtually no errors.
