Cooperation and authorizations clearly defined WITH FIS/mpm

In addition to increasing its master data quality, it was important to Hermle to standardize processes concerning data creation and maintenance. Central responsibilities were clarified and the authorizations of employees were restricted.  

The FIS/mpm master data tool supports Hermle by field-tested workflows for master data creation and maintenance and clearly defined processing authorizations. Data has to be validated in FIS/mpm and runs through check routines before it is transferred to the live system. In this way, master data management is structured transparently and efficiently.
