With AODP a publisher saves and provides their own master data. AODP allows them to remain the producer and distributor of their own goods.

The publisher not only has a physical warehouse for their goods but also a something like a "digital warehouse". Therefore they always remain in control of their products. This leads to more transparency over all sales and billing. Promotional actions, marketing, price - the supplier retains control over all of these things.

A digital market means growth in the industry


You don't think the digital and physical markets have anything in common? That's not true. Both are a part of your business. The digital market should not replace the sale of physical products, but rather complement it. By applying the right tools, the new market for digital goods can be integrated into the physical market. New product ranges can be developed and even speciality product lines can find their way into the market. For the end customer this means a larger variety of exciting offers.

The sale of digital goods is nothing new. However, a new decentral infrastructure with AODP brings new opportunities to market participants.
