Współpraca w zakresie danych o produktach jako strategiczny czynnik stymulujący zaangażowanie klientów

Odkąd ścieżki zakupów stały się nieliniowe, sprzedawcy i producenci mają trudności z dostarczaniem klientom dokładnych informacji i spersonalizowanych doświadczeń związanych z produktami.

This is not an issue that affects only retailers or only manufacturers. It is an issue that pervades the value chain and calls for collaboration among the business partners to share consistent, clear and accurate product information across channels. Such a collaborative approach is needed to create trusted and delightful product experiences for consumers and will drive growth and improve efficiency for both retailers and consumer good companies.

Senior business executives at both retailers’ and manufacturers’ have revealed during interviews that, at present, product information is neither of satisfactory quality nor “fit for purpose.” This inferior quality of product data is resulting in lost sales, low conversion rates, suboptimal on-shelf availability and decreased speed to market.

Many companies have become experts in improvising and are exploring avenues to overcome constraints in the existing islands of information systems and storage. Such companies struggle to facilitate seamless, fluid exchange of product data within the organization and across the value chain, including trading partners and consumers.

Currently, we see a mix of data sharing mechanisms and a variety of data-service providers, which leads to multiple version of the truth and a lack of transparency. It is obvious that manufacturers are the authoritative source of product data, and that further contextually relevant enrichment together with the retailer will provide the exact right product information and product experience to consumers.

There is a common understanding that collaboration and standardization are needed to gain consumers’ trust. Next to standardization of the data itself (including product-identification and attributes) API standardization is also important to establish interoperable systems that can easily share data.

The effort to succeed in this product data transformation journey should not be underestimated, as the devil is in the (product-data) details.
