German medical equipment wholesaler medika is optimising data supply to its customers with the Product Content eXchange Platform SyncManager — with integration into the HCDP master data portal for procurement in the healthcare industry.

medika group has chosen Bayard Consulting Group's SyncManager platform to standardise the product content of its assortment, which comprises around 130,000 medical items, and to organise it to a high quality standard.

In future, medika will use SyncManager to syndicate, store and maintain product content from its suppliers on a workflow basis. With the help of SyncManager, the healthcare product wholesaler will provide the hospitals' purchasing groups with validated product content from a single source via the Healthcare Content Data Portal (HCDP). This is an important step towards ensuring the best product availability in the hospitals.

Bayard Consulting is also supporting medika as an implementation partner on this project. The Cologne-based product content specialists will customise SyncManager to medika's needs and data models and integrate it into the existing IT infrastructure. An interface to medika's merchandise management system is planned by the end of this year.

medika's executives decided in favour of the product content experts because of Bayard Consulting's extensive industry expertise in the healthcare sector. Bayard Consulting had recently made a significant contribution towards establishing a widely respected standard for product master data in the healthcare sector with the HCDP purchasing portal for German hospital operators, the COVIN (Content Validation Network) regulations and its alignment with the GDSN standard of the GS1 community.

"For projects of this size and level of investment, it is common practice for us to look at several vendors. However, we were very quickly convinced by Bayard Consulting because the Cologne-based product content experts bring deep industry knowledge that is absolutely critical for us," explains Cagkan Sümer, Head of Administration and Organisation at medika. "It truly pays off for us to work with Bayard Consulting".
