"Many tasks will disappear by using unambiguous Master Data and the enablement of inter-company transactions between the Principal and Toller. Internal invoicing and the manual enrichment of master data in different systems will therefore be omitted. In addition, there is the possibility of comparing production processes at product/factory level. This approach will eliminate the tasks that now ensure coordination between the various business units and the consolidation of information to the enterprise level."
