You face a challenge

Product data was never meant to lie dormant. What would be the point of investing so much time and effort in collecting it if you could not make it available to your customers and business partners? By not syndicating your product data, you are missing out on sales opportunities.

The challenge is that today’s customers interact with your brand across multiple touchpoints, and managing so many channels, systems and platforms simultaneously is a complex task. You need to update data in multiple places using different interfaces and perform repetitive, tedious work. Often, content must also be enriched and localized for languages, units of measure, currencies, and product variants. 

As if that were not enough, technology is changing rapidly and new sales channels and platforms can emerge faster than many systems can handle.

There is a solution 

The good news is that with Bluestone PIM MACH architecture, you can overcome all of these business challenges

On the one hand, with PIM you can bring all product content together and create a single source of truth. On the other hand, with over 500 APIs and ready-to-use apps, you can connect your product content to all sales channels, including those that will appear in the future

And the best part? You’ll be able to feed and sync your PIM data in a smooth and automated way to orchestrate complete, timely, and relevant product experiences. 

Finally, your customers will be able to interact with your products through the touchpoints of their choice. This not only saves you operational costs, but also helps you achieve higher conversion rates, happier, more loyal customers, and more revenue

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1 - What is product data syndication?

Product data syndication (PDS), also known as product content syndication, is the continuous feed of product data distributed between parties (retailers, manufacturers, trading partners, and marketplaces) and to all selected channels, data pools, and sales touchpoints.

2 - What does syndication mean in e-commerce?

The e-commerce market is moving very fast. Retailers need to keep up with emerging omnichannel trends and shifting consumer behaviors. "Spreadsheets chaos" and the incorrect or incomplete product data it causes can dramatically impact the customer's product experience and increase the risk of abandoned shopping carts. Therefore, e-commerce companies need to ensure effective syndication of product content across all their sales platforms to deliver up-to-date and enriched high-quality product data.

3 - What is MDM syndication?

Master data management goes far beyond product data. It refers to the core information that is critical to all business processes. The syndication feature of MDM in product information management software enables organizations to manage master data and share its up-to-date version across the enterprise.

4 - What is syndication in PIM?

Product data management software allows you to synchronize product data quickly and smoothly in one place, providing a single source of truth. Automated product data syndication in PIM increases efficiency in adding new product information, facilitates analysis, and speeds time to market.

5 - How to create rich product content?

Rich product content is a crucial factor in providing customers with a complete pre-purchase product experience (PX). To create it, you need several pillars:

1. Product content that engages and educates your website visitors. It includes many formats: meaningful written product descriptions, high-quality images, videos, virtual tours, manuals, and brochures with product details.

2. Content strategy for your website including content audit, content gap analysis and SEO strategy.

3. Detailed developed buyer personas and buyer journey to get to know your visitors better and understand what they are looking for.

4. Technological tools such as product information management software enable collecting, enriching, and syndicating product content in one place.

By following these steps, you can present your products to the right people at the right time. And that's the key to lead generation success.
