Master Data Cleansing

Clean master data with just a few clicks

Clean MRO master data is the basis of effective and efficient maintenance processes. With data from thousands of original manufactures and suppliers in one database and intelligent matching technologies, any material master can be analyzed for data enrichment, duplicates, and obsolescence within seconds.

How can master data be cleaned up easily?

Using SPARETECH, material master data cleansing becomes an easy process. In the first step, you upload your material master in the SPARETECH app which analyses all material master fields and automatically identifies duplicates, incorrect or incomplete data sets and discontinued materials. This happens with the help of SPARETECH’s intelligent matching algorithms which matches the data against a database covering tens of millions original manufacturer data sets. As a result, the master data can be cleansed from duplicates and enriched with 100% correct product data in a third step. With an direct Integration into ERP Systems like SAP, the gained master data cleansing insights can by applied seamlessly in the fourth and last step.

1. Analyze and enrich your master data with SPARETECH

2. Identify duplicates in your master data

Cleansing data and especially removing duplicates from the system can be a lengthy process. Hence it is important to have a governance and support model in place. Removing duplicates is a collaborative effort and involves various stakeholders. Make sure everyone is on-board and understands the process. Get the full guide on how to find and remove duplicates in the material master.

3. Enrichment with original manufacturer information

Cleanse your inaccurate or faulty data with data enrichment suggestions from the SPARETECH database. Directly add missing information based on 100% correct manufacturer data with a material change request. No matter if you have missing or wrong information in the product name, product description, EAN, article number, type code, ECLASS IDs, or other fields – SPARETECH’s enrichment suggestions got you covered.

4. Ensure continuous data quality management

Companies often tend to focus solely on the initial cleansing of their master data. The three steps mentioned above enable you to get an accurate, consistent, and complete data basis. However, without continuous duplicate and quality checks during the new material creation process, duplicates and incorrect data may resurface the ERP System. Therefore, the fourth step of ensuring a duplicate- and error-free material creation process is essential to keep the master data clean.
