Efficient product information management is a critical success factor in e-commerce. It requires timely and accurate sourcing, standardization, enrichment and publishing of product content to ensure retailers don’t lose out on customers due to missing products or information. As online product assortments continue to expand, e-commerce category managers are embracing automated catalog management tools to optimize their product information management.
Automated catalog management tools help retailers to gather product data from multiple sources, classify, fill information gaps and publish products to the website efficiently and at scale. Here’s the typical workflow of an automated catalog management platform:
Some automated cataloging platforms integrate rule-based algorithms that help category managers ensure content hygiene and standardization. This includes providing suggestions for the correct spelling, word count, image size and format, unit of measurement, etc. Once the required product information is gathered and sanitized, it can be further enriched to create unique and keyword-enriched product content. In short, automating the grunt work of researching, collecting, and templatizing product information helps online retailers boost their product assortment quickly and drive revenue growth.
