   Bizcaps has assisted Parker Healthcare to load its catalogue of 400 products to the National Product Catalogue (NPC) and to quickly become NPC-Ready.   Drew Hayes of Bizcaps said: “It has been a pleasure to be involved with such a well-prepared project. The project demonstrates how a supplier who understood the benefits of data synchronisation can ensure a swift and reasonably painless deployment of their product data to the National Product Catalogue”. He said Parker Healthcare’s absolute determination to do what was needed to have its product data quickly available on the NPC, complete and correct, was the key element in the success of the project in such a short time.   Parker Healthcare Pty Ltd is a wholly-Australian-owned medical equipment manufacturer, with particular expertise in the intensive care, anaesthesia and neonatal sections of the healthcare industry. Parker Healthcare is also the Australian distributor of a wide range of leading imported healthcare products.   The National Product Catalogue is an initiative of the National E-Health Transition Authority (NEHTA). The NPC is intended to be the single source of product data for tendering and contracting by State, Territory and Federal health departments and other buyers in the healthcare market. With the NPC, NEHTA expects that product data synchronisation between suppliers and their trading partners will dramatically reduce invoice claims and out of stock situations.   Bizcaps Enterprise helps clients quickly and accurately create and maintain product data for the NPC, validated against industry and business rules and in the format that trading partners need. Enterprise can also integrate a catalogue of product data to a user’s ERP or other internal systems.   Bizcaps Enterprise is powered by the Bizcaps GS1net Connect engine, the first middleware to be certified for use with GS1net. Bizcaps is an Alliance Partner of GS1.   Enterprise is part of a range of Product Lifecycle Management, Product Data Management and Business Process Management software solutions available from Bizcaps.
