Gaining Control of Product Data for Uniforms and Equipment
Uniform, accessory and equipment companies all sell products that have significant amounts of data and information associated with them. There are SKU details, descriptions, specifications, decorations, images, sell sheets, certifications, and so much more.
Further, all manufacturers and distributors in the image apparel, public safety and workwear categories have multiple stakeholders in their supply chain routinely looking for product information. There is a need for companies today to utilize technology that assists with Product Information Management (PIM), Digital Asset Management (DAM), and information workflows.
This webinar will examine how uniform and equipment sellers can:
- Remove manual processing and automate the flow of your product information
- Improve the speed and quality of everything you do related to documents, images, manuals, certificates.
- Import, export and schedule product data through all sales channels; wholesale, retail, eCommerce, etc.
Ensure a consistent customer experience across all touch points
