Room for Improvement:
Purchasing this tool was quite expensive. It requires skills and knowledge to use it, as well as time, but you can start only with the attributes that you need.
PCM is a very important tool in creating a reliable customer data source that is centralized with no duplicates, thus increasing master data redundancy. Master data is the data entities that cannot be transacted. It ensures that there is control and consistency in all processes involved. PCM can also be used in data collection, consolidation, distribution, storage, and classification, as well as detection and correction of errors.Our customer data is now redundant, as we had duplicate data.
