Supplier ACES® Data Validation, Content Comparison and Assessment Program
Having quality data is critical to compete in this competitive parts selling environment and for reducing returns. Also, having well formed and correct ACES® files is vital for delivery of data to today's high tech receivers who can process your data and have it to market in hours instead of months. OptiCat OnTarget is a toolset with services that validate supplier data, identifying errors in mapping, output logic and even data mapping issues with the PCDB and VCDB. It will also compare your new ACES® file with the file you delivered previously and shows you dropped parts and vehicles as well as those added and many other features.
OnTarget provides onsite, locally available functionality that enables a discreet quality control function on suppliers cataloging output and product information management system output logic. Issues are exposed internally allowing catalog managers to make any necessary corrections before their downstream partners find them and create painful assessment document which are sometimes weeks later.
