At cartomak we capture and manage stock information from European wholesalers. In the process, we not only rely on the major industry players but also we link many specialists who are truly unbeatable in their field. We read the positions available in their stock – also the ones without EAN / GTIN / IPC / HSN / MPN – everything, including tubes, flaps and RDKS sensors.
The result consists in matching tables containing the information : cartomak article number = supplier article number.
That’s the only information we have related to the articles. And we don’t want to know more. We are not interested in the price of the articles.
How it works?
Our data customers simply import the matching tables in their own ERP System.
Precondition: Your supplier must first agree that we transfer it's article numbers to you.
Therefore, you must only know the article number of your supplier- nothing else. After that, when you receive a stock-and-price file from your supplier your ERP System will be able to read all data immediately. Your ERP System will recognize your supplier’s article number directly. Absolutely no information from this process will reach cartomak. In this process, the exchange of informations is between you and your supplier only.
This means: there will be no transparency, everything will remain confidential between you and your business partners just like in the good old days.
Many suppliers avoid providing their stock information to Platforms. As our data customers don’t hold any open b2b system, they are not affected by these restrictions. Our past experience showed us that even the fiercest competitors can make “agreements” and it is amazing what a positive effect can have data exchange on sales growth. For that, we don’t have to “love eachother”. One just have to realize that no one can be Number 1 anymore. Our European market is already too crowded and, just like we learned in physics, “Actio est Reactio”. No one can be Number 1 anymore.
The multilateralism is the best long-term strategy to run a business.
