Product Data Is Definitely Top Of Mind

Posted by on 5:10 pm in Product Information Management | Comments Off on Product Data Is Definitely Top Of Mind

Managing Product Data was heavily discussed last night at a well-attended SEMA Town Hall Meeting here in Miami.  During this meeting the SEMA Leadership polled the audience on their most pressing issues in their business.  While the number one issue was finding new and top talent.

 

26% Of Attendees Agreed That Managing Product Data Was A Major Issue

 

During the town hall it was discussed in-depth the importance of accurate product data from the manufacturer, through the wholesale distributor, down to the jobber, installer, or retailer.  This was the second most pressing issue in the businesses of the attendees, followed by product development.

Ensuring accurate product data at all levels allows for more sales of products – a proven fact.  Accurate product data also lowers the total overall cost of sale and leads to higher customer satisfaction rate.

Product Data is not limited to just specifications around the parts or assembly schematics.  Product Data expands into detailed product descriptions for your websites, accurate make/model data, product pictures, pricing, and so forth.  Many businesses today do not realize the cost to their business by not working with accurate product data.

 

Product Data In A Central Location Is Important

 

Cellacore Manages Product Data SEMA Data Co-Op

By centralizing product data, manufacturers as well as retailers can ensure that they are using the most up-to-date and accurate information.  When companies store information in different locations and in different formats, this can be costly, not only from a time perspective but to the bottom-line as well.

Many companies limp along trying to manage product data in shared folders, spreadsheets, and using their ERP systems.  However, with today’s technology it has become very easy to centralize, maintain control, and roll out new products rapidly using Product Information Management (PIM) and E-Catalog tools.  The technology available today allows companies to effectively manage SKU proliferation, pricing/margin pressure, and become ACES and PIES compliant.

No matter what level your company is at today or how many SKU’s you manufacture, distribute, or retail, having accurate product data can help your company’s revenue.  There are solutions of all levels to help companies maintain, review, and distribute accurate product data.   

To learn more about simplifying your product data and selling more products contact us today.  Our Product Desk solution is an automotive industry specific Product Information Management (PIM) solution that streamlines the data management process.

One common theme that the annual SEMA and AAPEX trade shows demonstrated was the continued growth of miles driven in 2015 and the projected growth into 2016, which directly correlates to an increase in demand for quality aftermarket parts and options.

To date, traditional supply chain companies have done an excellent job helping companies respond to the physical aspects of growth in shipping volumes and more complex fulfillment processes.

By managing the accuracy of the data around new parts and part families it improves the overall supply chain process, the customer experience and revenue potential of a company.”

Minock continued, “Product Desk not only improves supply chain systems, it also improves the management, development, and maintenance of e-commerce sites, traditional print materials, and financial systems.

In such case it becomes very hard to monitor how data is flowing between multiple systems, what kind of information is being exchanged, what data one system is sending to another, and what is the status of the integration process. If something goes wrong during the integration process the debugging process becomes very time consuming. This can result into bad customer service and a poor customer experience.

What is Product Information Management (PIM)

Posted by on 3:57 pm in Product Information Management | Comments Off on What is Product Information Management (PIM)

Cellacore Product Information ManagementProduct Information Management (PIM) is generally referred to as the process of managing information related to a product in a central location through a software or technology solution. The focus of this activity is generally the data or information that is required to sell the product to either business wholesale relationships or direct to consumer.

Typically product information is scattered throughout organizations and is kept in silos or departments. The proliferation of SKU’s in many markets today has forced companies to implement Product Information Management solutions to ensure accurate product information is being used by their internal teams, as well as the correct information is being distributed outside of their organization to the general public or distribution channels.

With companies having their entire product information in one single location they can centrally manage information about their products and ensure it is accurate and up to date. This allows for a consistent set of data to be used by such output channels as e-commerce sites, general marketing information websites, print catalogs, supply chain systems, ERP systems, and other relevant database systems.

How can PIM solutions help companies

In the past companies have tried to manage all of this information in either their website content management solution (CMS) or their ERP systems. With the depth of information required around each individual product or product family it becomes challenging to manage information in either a CMS or ERP, because certain data types or fields are not supported. This leads to disparate spreadsheets and independently built Microsoft Access databases. Which leads to further confusion on where the data is located, who is the owner of the data, and the source.  All of these factors then lead to questions regarding the accuracy of the data and challenges around validating the data.

The adoption of Product Information Management systems within enterprise companies started becoming more prevalent in 2004, as analysts started covering this type of solution. The coverage started as the breadth of digital media assets started growing and crossed over with the traditional print catalogs. Product Information Management systems also started to become necessary as industry organizations started to demand data consistency and standards.

Secure and robust data integration tools are also essential with any Product Information Mangement solution. Data sharing is an important aspect of a quality PIM solution. This ensures accurate and real-time data sharing between the PIM solution and the trusted source.
