ECLASS – The standard for master data and digitalization

ECLASS has established itself nationally and internationally as the only ISO/IEC complying industry standard. ECLASS is the worldwide data standard for the classification and unique description of product master data. Apart from the classic applications in procurement, controlling and sales, ECLASS shows its particular strength in the use for cross-company process data management and in engineering. ECLASS has been established in industry, trade, crafts, food, services, etc. since 2000. The standard covers the majority of traded goods and services, in more than 45,000 product classes and 19,000 clearly described attributes. Thousands of companies already rely on ECLASS. Be part of it and use the potentials of this cross-industry standard for your company.


What are the advantages of ECLASS for your company?

ECLASS in purchasing and procurement:

ECLASS enables you to analyze and bundle the purchasing portfolio according to matching criteria. This makes suppliers completely transparent; all sourced materials and products can be compared by supplier. This stimulates competition among suppliers and helps consolidate the supplier base. Bidding processes can accelerate to more than double due to comparability.

ECLASS in sales:

ECLASS supports electronic marketplaces and electronic catalogs through digital data exchange. Catalog data is made available quickly and effectively.
ECLASS improves the strategic basis for decision-making as data is harmonized, processed in a meaningful way and shared with customers. This, likewise, strengthens customer confidence.

ECLASS in engineering and automation:

ECLASS supports the formation of cross-company process chains and the digital representation of objects (digital twin) through its clear properties. For this purpose, ECLASS currently offers the largest repository of descriptive properties based on international standards

ECLASS for processes and maintenance:

With a clear classification of products and services, you can find every article, you have an overview of stocks and delivery quantities, avoid duplicates and automatically place repeat orders. Media discontinuities are eliminated and manual data transformations become superfluous. This not only saves time and money but also helps to utilize production capacity, reduce capital commitment, increase throughput, optimize availability and avoid machine downtime.

ECLASS in controlling:

A uniform and consistent description of deliveries and services makes internal processes comparable with the market and helps to create charge rates, enables comparative cost analyses across all product groups and provides uniform structures for reporting.

ECLASS stays with you. Even if employees leave your company – the know-how remains with ECLASS.
