KOIOS Master Data

Companies are struggling to overcome barriers to improved productivity, portability of data, digitization of material and asset records, and the challenges of exchanging data between organizations without changing their terminology to suit every separate entity they deal with.

Over recent years Peter Eales has observed how organisations were becoming more and more frustrated with the myriad of different formats catalogue items and technical specifications that were being used throughout the supply chain, and the huge costs that were being consumed in an attempt to make sense of them – from procuring the right component and then further down the line ensuring the right spares were ordered from the right place to the correct specification.

This frustration can be solved with the adoption of ISO 8000, the international data quality standard.

In February 2017 Peter joined forces with software entrepreneur Simon Towner and created KOIOS Master Data – an online community to enable manufacturers, distributors, suppliers and MRO organisations across many industries to easily collaborate by searching for, uploading and downloading catalogue items and product specifications that are compliant to ISO 8000.

The benefits of using this international standard means organisations can share a ‘single version of the truth’ across the entire supply chain, saving significant time and costs, and no longer struggling to source the right component from the right manufacturer at the right time.

At KOIOS Master Data we are passionate about helping our customers to reap the rewards of adopting ISO 8000. To that end we are driven to build an excellent product, that is simple and intuitive to use, responsive to your needs, and makes your catalogue items easy to find by buyers and MRO organisations.
