Industrial Components Distributor Accelerates Product Content Onboarding by 50% with Bluemeteor DataBridge


Product content onboarding: Wholesale industrial component distributors face relentless pressure to expand their market share. A multinational trading conglomerate realized they needed a better way of onboarding complex product content to improve their sales turnover.

Operating across the UK, EU, and Asia Pacific, their portfolio of 500,000+ products – spanning categories such as automation and engineering tools, electronic components, industrial control systems, and consumable goods – demanded meticulous attention to detail.

They required a scalable solution to transform their management of rich product data, which would accelerate time to market, fulfill customer expectations, and drive omnichannel sales.

The Challenge

The challenges our client faced were multifaceted:

Gathering precise product information from numerous manufacturing partners with diverse portfolios is a daunting task without the right tools and systems in place. They have hundreds of manufacturing partners, each with large and complex product portfolios, and extensive variations of each product.

Routine product content updates from manufacturers and suppliers, coupled with regional variations in units of measurement, further complicated their product information management. Ensuring that accurate product information is made available to end customers at all times proved to be tedious and effort intensive.

Crucially, ingesting and integrating product content from disparate systems was their most formidable challenge and pain point. Onboarding data from new supply chain partners was extremely complicated and marred by constant delays.

The factors stated above hindered our client’s ability to maintain consistent, accurate, and engaging product content to their millions of customers worldwide.
