“Implement a replacement for a product information management platform which able to handle more than 80.000 products with speed”
Managing an e-commerce catalog is difficult, especially for a company as big as Office Choice with thousands of SKUs to publish. Keeping the quality of the data to be consistent and accurate across so many product categories is no easy task, you need to be equipped with a platform that able to accommodate those needs, not to mention the challenge to update products information as price fluctuates. Every day you could spend a significant amount of time fine-tuning thousands of products. Then there is a speed issue as well, customers expect a fast result when they are looking for something, keeping up with the speed is also a major issue that Office Choice trying to tackle.
SALT helped the implementation of a new Product Information Management (PIM) platform, working with a world-class PIM solution such as Pimcore enabling Office Choice to provide the best experience for its customers with a speedy search within its website, delivering high quality information with consistency to help the business grow.
The new PIM is not just duplicate the existing platform, but it enhances the functionality as well, customers now supplied with better information, bringing confidence in the buying process resulted in better sales performance.
