For many years Toniq has provided a Pricelist service to allow suppliers to have one point of contact to distribute product and pricing data to retailers across New Zealand. This service has proved of great value to both retailers and suppliers by ensuring the accuracy of product data, pricing, and stock ordering.
Over the last two decades, there have been many changes in retailing and supply chain and, as these changes have occurred, both suppliers' and retailers’ expectations have changed. To ensure that Toniq can continue to offer and improve on this valuable service to the benefit of suppliers and retailers, we have updated the price list service.
Introducing the Toniq Product Catalogue
The Toniq Product Catalogue (TPC) focuses on collecting richer product data from suppliers and setting the standard across the retail pharmacy industry. Enriched data will allow for enhancements that will streamline the ordering process and allow for more suppliers to utilise our electronic ordering service.
Toniq TPC platform enables you to view and maintain your product catalogue. It simplifies the product request process and provides instant feedback if certain standards are not met. New product requests or product change requests that have been submitted will go through an exacting quality assurance process before being made available to end users.
To provide this service Toniq has a team of data experts ensuring that your product information is published to retailers quickly and with a high degree of accuracy and standardisation. Those data standards are laid out in the TPC Data Standards article.
