Every company in every industry has a database that stores information about the products and services they make, sell or buy. These product databases are often referred to as catalogues. Companies that sell require catalogues to promote, while companies that buy require catalogues to purchase. The exchange of catalogue information is therefore paramount to orchestrate trade. SyncManager provides the ultimate platform to enable electronic catalogue synchronization across any industry.
