OptiCat has announced that Paramount Data Management (PDM) has integrated to the new OptiCat OnBoard applications programming interface (API) for the distribution of product data, generated with a PDM product information management (PIM) system account.
With its unique technology, PDM enables manufacturers in the automotive parts industry to create product data that is tailored specifically toward key receivers in the industry. The integration to OptiCat’s OnBoard API allows PDM users to speed data to market in hours rather than days or months, and with OptiCat’s catalog data OnTarget validation tool, the supplier can ensure the data is technically best able to meet the requirements of the data receiver, according to OptiCat.
“With OptiCat’s OnBoard API sending high-quality data, created by the supplier with a PDM account, delivery to receivers is accomplished in “near-real-time.” We are proud and excited to partner with OptiCat, a leading data distribution network and trusted partner for key manufacturers and data receivers in the industry. For suppliers, it is now possible to add new products or make changes and have them visible at highest possible speed,” said Johannes Crepon of PDM.
Bryan Thueson, chief operating officer for OptiCat, commented, “The integration by PDM of the OptiCat API is another step toward providing highest possible ‘speed to market’ of important supplier catalog data. Every day, and even hour, of data delay represents a lost selling opportunity. We are committed to maximizing opportunities to ‘Help Sell More Parts’ across the distribution chain.”
