Efficient SAP master data management – optimal data quality with FIS

An increased number of companies respond to the requirements of Industry and Commerce 4.0 and adapt their processes. This includes an increased data volume with high demands on handling. The data quality significantly influences the value added of an SAP system and data increasingly becomes an important production factor with highest quality standards – arguments justifying the optimization of data handling with FIS/mpm.


The FIS solution supports you in maintaining master data in SAP already before using the production system and significantly increases data quality. The data is only transferred to the system after successful validation and execution of check routines. An easy, quick and flexible master data management in SAP is the central advantage of FIS/mpm.


FIS accelerates the processes of your SAP master data management and verifies weak points. Using this solution, master data is maintained as quickly as errors corrected. It goes without saying that the FIS solution also supports the processing of mass data. Field-tested workflows simplify master data processing by your employees, ensure faster processing times of master data processes and relieve the cost structure of your company.
