Publish and Syndicate Relevant Content


Product Content 

An easy-to-use web interface and process flow lets you synchronize product data across digital channels, improving both speed and accuracy. Easily share products across categories, catalogs and sites, while simultaneously managing and maintaining seasonal, branded and future catalogs with integrated master and subsequent catalog structures.


Dynamic Image Management

Manage and deliver high-resolution images quickly and simply. With dynamic imaging, you can resize images from a single high-resolution master. Easily scale, cut or crop an image; overlay another image for promotional purposes; and sharpen and output multiple formats and resolutions. Dynamic imaging eliminates the need to maintain multiple sizes, types and qualities, resulting in efficiency and cost savings.


Web Content Management

Merchandisers and designers can have direct control over all content. Site content is maintained in a master schedule that can also include non-product related sections and pages with targeted banner ads. Designers can access all HTML and CSS assets using their favorite web editing suite, so they can easily import new assets into the platform and replicate and rebrand sites quickly and efficiently.

Dynamic product sorting allows you to deliver products based on key metrics, such as best inventory turn, margin, conversion rates and average order size, directly to search results or category pages.
