Synopsis

Distributors face a unique challenge of volume due to their thousands of manufacturer relationships and millions of product SKUs. In the digital age, the online customer demands consistent experiences, comprehensive product information, current data, and clear direction. Amaze PXM helps distributors address this formidable task by making it easy for them to create enriched product information and distribute it across the relevant channels in a timely fashion to achieve better eCommerce outcomes.

Who is this for?

This use case applies to small and mid-sized product aggregators and distributors who have a wide portfolio of products from a variety of manufacturing partners.

These distributors sell through a complex network of salespeople, physical locations, sub-distributors, and online channels. This creates a complex scenario of maintaining consistent product information across all these channels to create a seamless omnichannel experience.

What are their challenges?

Typically, the distributors have a wide and deep product portfolio of millions of SKUs. Their customers traverse a complex journey. Even for the same decision, they may visit multiple channels and seek information. It is critical to ensure they get consistent and accurate information – irrespective of channel. Without the right information at the right stage, available in exactly the right manner, the buyer journey cannot progress, and the sale may be lost.

To achieve these objectives, distributors face several challenges such as

  • Information Inputs: Manually gathering information from hundreds of manufacturing partners is time-consuming, error-prone, effort-intensive, and introduces an unacceptable lag as products evolve.
  • Information Evolution: As new products and versions emerge; product information needs to be updated. It becomes impossible for the distributors to keep track of such necessary changes and updates across the channels inconsistent and fragmented.
  • Information Versions: For distributors selling across wide geographics, it is crucial to be able to present the product information in the format and manner most relevant for each specific region. Doing so manually is slow and prone to errors.
  • Information Disparity: The presence of different systems and technologies across the various members of the ecosystem, creates complexities in system integrations.

Because of these challenges, distributors find it hard to quickly onboard new manufacturers, go-to-market with products and create elevated and personalized experiences for their customers.
