A message from Start with Data’s CEO, Ben Adams on our exciting partnership with Riversand, a leading cloud-native SaaS Master Data Management (MDM) and Product Information Management (PIM) solution provider 

If you are a retailer or distributor, the markets in which you operate are  more and more fiercely competitive. Given ‘The New Normal’, there has been a rapid move towards enhancing digital platforms and it is those organisations who are forward-facing and well-prepared for this move who will be a step ahead of the competition.

Digital and technological capabilities have moved forward exponentially in recent years and one of the most central is product data management. That is why it is absolutely essential for retailers and distributors alike to adopt and implement high-quality Product Information Management (PIM) and Master Data Management (MDM) platforms – that means platforms which are cloud-native, scalable, flexible and fit for purpose when it comes to operating in a digital-first market.

To that end, Start with Data has partnered with Riversand, a leading cloud-native SaaS Master Data Management (MDM) and Product Information Management (PIM) solution provider. Together, we will be offering consulting services and systems integration to our retail and distribution clients.

“Start with Data offers deep knowledge of MDM and PIM strategy” said Ben Rund, vice president of Business Development in Europe at Riversand. “Now, in collaboration with Riversand, retail and distribution customers will benefit from their expertise on data strategy, data governance and implementation of PIM software to achieve their digital transformation goals.”

Ben Adams, Founder and CEO of Start with Data highlights why we are delighted to form this partnership;  “Riversand’s cloud native Software as a Service platform for MDM and PIM provides a truly scalable, flexible and cost-effective suite of capabilities for our clients to better manage their product and master data, creating value for their suppliers and end customers”. He emphasises the capabilities of their platform; “The intuitive user interface, coupled with advanced data modelling and workflow capabilities allows our clients to build fast and efficient product data management processes.”

If you are among those retailers and distributors, thinking strategically as the landscape changes before our eyes, this PIM and MDM platform harnesses cutting-edge innovations, to bring a state-of-the-art approach to managing your valuable product information.
