Bridgestone SA Goes Live with Rinktee Cloud Punchout Catalog

Posted on Jun 30, 2017 by Simon
We are pleased to announce that Bridgestone (South Africa) has gone live with the Rinktee cloud punchout catalog solution earlier this month. This marks our 3rd SAP customer running SRM that has chosen Rinktee over SRM-MDM to manage catalogs for supplier items.

The preferred method of managing items in the cloud using Rinktee won over the standard SRM-MDM legacy offering that was limited in search and a challenge to maintain.

The following observations were also noted at Bridgestone:

  • MDM needs hardware,
  • MDM is more complex to setup,
  • Rinktee solution is easy, and time to market much quicker then MDM,
  • Rinktee is easier to maintain and not dependent on SAP support staff.

Congratulations Bridgestone SA!
