Synopsis

Digital commerce-Many small and mid-sized manufacturers stumble in their adoption of digital strategies because of the sheer complexity of onboarding new distributors and managing product catalogs.

It’s near-impossible for them to ensure that accurate, updated, high-quality product content flows through the complex ecosystem at the rate the modern omnichannel customer expects. Amaze PXM makes the struggle easy leveraging the best of modern technology.

Who is this for?

This use case applies to small and mid-size manufacturers who have a growing portfolio of products. These manufacturers have traditionally sold through physical sales channels but are now having to adopt a mix of digital strategies.

This complex mix of omnichannel strategies includes big brand eCommerce marketplaces, physical stores, manufacturer-owned website/ app, and distributor channels.

This forces manufacturers to deal with situations they have not addressed before because of the unfamiliarity with digital channels and omnichannel customer preferences and habits.

What are their challenges?

These manufacturers face a number of challenges in addressing digital channels, such as

  • Distributor onboarding: Manufacturers typically operate through thousands of distributors. Manual onboarding of distributors is effort-intensive, time- consuming, and error-prone.
  • Product catalog creation and updation: Product information of millions of product variants needs to be available in different formats for sharing across different channels. This is an ongoing activity as new products were added, or old products evolve.
  • Product catalog distribution: Distributing the product catalog across all of the channels (physical as well as digital) is a massive exercise if handled manually.
  • Content syndication: Without establishing and maintaining a single “source of truth” for the entire product portfolio and standardizing product information, it becomes impossible to achieve consistency in product data or timely distribution across the channels.
  • Omnichannel buyer journeys: Buyer journeys have become more complex spanning across a variety of channels. Buyers expect a consistently superior experience across all channels. It is hard to offer such an experience in the absence of a unified product information strategy.

All such challenges negatively impact manufacturers’ sales and distributor relationships.
