Automotive Product Data – Automotive eCommerce


No great ACES PIES Data starts with “I’ll send you a spreadsheet”

On average 76% of spreadsheets have inaccurate data and 22% of spreadsheets have copy and paste errors.  While Microsoft Excel can be great, using it as a tool to compile and map ACES PIES data can be risky. Statistics show complex Excel files can be riddled with errors. Technology advancements in web-based applications have made it affordable and easy for small and large Aftermarket Automotive companies alike to obtain access to ACES PIES technology and forgo relying on Microsoft Excel. The evolution of Product Information Management solutions, commonly referred to as “a PIM”, has allowed Aftermarket Automotive companies to standardize information on one platform for “one source of the truth.”  This dramatically eliminates errors related to spreadsheet data entry, ownership, and publishing.  Companies can enrich their product data in one central place to build, supply, and publish accurate ACES PIES data related to the auto parts they sell. The evolution of PIM systems was started in the general retail print catalog industry.  From there PIM solutions moved into electronic catalogs, then to Ecommerce websites. With the proliferation of SKU’s in the Aftermarket Automotive industry it has become important to manage both the inbound and outbound flow of auto parts data via a PIM.  Without a PIM it can be very labor intensive to import ACES PIES data, manage the data, and format it properly. All your ACES PIES data in one central location In the past Aftermarket Automotive companies had to have one tool just to catalog their automotive fitment data.  Then they had to have another solution for their product descriptions, specifications, and packaging information.  Then Aftermarket Automotive companies had to have yet another system for marketing collateral and content.  Then yes – another system for pulling it all together into ACES PIES. No more. With the evolution of PIM systems, Cellacore has embraced world-class technology and workflow to bring the Automotive industry’s first full feature PIM solution that is simple to deploy, simple to use, and simple to profit from.  Cellaore’s PIM is built 100% for the Aftermarket Automotive industry.  Cellacore’s PIM solution is based on ACES PIES data, while empowering the data to be used across multiple sales channels such as Amazon, Ebay, TecDoc, B2C Ecommerce,...
