Web application server

The web architecture is based on web and API servers. It enables users to maintain and translate product information and media assets. This is done regardless of location and according to the authorizations assigned to the respective user. In addition, characteristics, images, texts and relationships can be edited in tabular comparison. At a glance, users are able to see where data is missing, where it differs or where it has been inherited. There are extensive options for sorting, grouping, filtering and customizing the interface.

Data hub and process monitor

With the configurable data hub, data transfers and batch programs can be controlled automatically. Many crossbase applications can be started batchwise by means of parameters, e.g. translation management, text generation, data imports, and data exports. But it can also be used in conjunction with other applications. The log information is visually displayed on a cockpit interface. This makes it the ideal general-purpose tool for IT administrators.

ERP interface

crossbase is an open system and has an XML standard interface for importing data from upstream systems. Data such as item numbers, brief texts and prices can be imported into the PIM database automatically at defined times. Furthermore, data requiring maintenance in the PIM system can also be transferred back into the ERP system.

PIM and MAM

icon

Product database

In most cases, item master data from the ERP system is not sufficient to ensure market- and media-oriented and customer-oriented product communication. Therefore, the supplementary maintenance of product structures, product features and product relationships, such as spare parts, accessories and product recommendations, follows. Mandatory fields and inheritance functions can be used to optimize data maintenance.

Media asset management

Not only photos, graphics and symbols are collected and categorized independently of media in the integrated Media Asset Management (MAM), but also documents, videos and CAD drawings. Starting from the source format, media-compatible output formats are automatically generated for print, Internet or Office. This is done with the integrated graphic and video converter, or alternatively with Adobe Photoshop. The video converter can be used to generate all common video formats and to edit video sequences.

Text management

Texts are captured independently of the media and managed in a granular way so that they can be reused and maintenance investments are considerably reduced. The variety of texts can be clearly structured by means of categories, versions and languages and managed in the crossbase database in all the languages of the world independently of media with XML and Unicode.

Translation

Translation management

With a standardized and database-driven translation process, up-to-date product communication is made possible in all markets. The translation can be done directly in the crossbase database, externally at an agency or in the national company. Each text is given a status so that it can be seen at any time whether it is being translated and whether it has been checked.

Provision of data

Data export for e-catalogs

One of the most important tasks in digital product communication is the provision of data for online catalogs, shops, external systems, retail partners and portals. For this purpose, electronic catalogs with a customer-specific assortment and a price list are created in the crossbase database. The mapping of the fields to the contents in the database can be defined individually depending on the format or classification.

API server

The crossbase API Server (Application Programming Interface) offers a flexible way to access data in the crossbase database in third-party systems. These accesses remain independent of changes to the underlying data model. Via the interface, experienced software developers can effortlessly write a program or read the data in the crossbase database.

Mobile devices are well established in the sales dialog. All files, catalogs, media and documents can be accessed digitally on the mobile device and thus be carried along without taking up space or adding weight. crossbase offers an interface to mobile applications with the powerful REST API.
