PDEX without retail switch: what's in, what's out?

Hi,

I'm at a customer starting a project. They have in one country already subscriptions and advertising of IS-Media. They are just implementing EHP1-4 in their systems.

In a roll-out to a new country, also single copy sales is to be used, so possibly we could use some of the functions included in PDEX enhancement (especially in the quantity planning part, as the logistic execution is outsourced).

However, their system is not having the retail switch activated, and they will not do so also on a running system (apart from functional reasons not to do so).

I was wondering if anyone has experience or knows what functions of PDEX will work (or not) in a not-retail system.

regards,

Bert

    Hello Bert,

    It is not necessary to switch on retail when implementing Press distribution.

    Also you would not want to do that since that involves using the retail product master, which you would not want to do as you are using advertising and subscriptions and the retail media product master does not synchoronise to the product master used in those solutions.

    Hope this helps,

    Henry

      Hi Bert,

      You are correct about the assortment planning retail functionality, it cannot be used without the retail master,, and hence if you are running PDEX in the same system as periodicals and advertising you can not use the retail master and hence the assortment retail functionality.

      My understanding is that retail articles are not synchronized to the media product master tables ( used in advertising and MSD periodicals).

      Regards,

    OK, this makes things more clear. In our own internal demo system I will play around with synchronization of materials with periodicals.
