Supplier support, to help them comply
Fast setup, to get driving value quickly
Sourcing product content from suppliers is preferred. Suppliers should know their products better than anyone. It is also more cost effective to source content from them, and further improve it than creating yourself.
But getting the diversity of suppliers to comply has always been a challenge. They get many requests, have varying internal capability and the technology or process is often a hindrance, not a help. Until now.
SKUcapture is the managed service that makes it easier to source product content from suppliers using SKUlibrary, saving time and cost for you and them
Watch a webinar on sourcing content from suppliers
This webinar will help you to understand the benefits and challenges of sourcing product content from suppliers. It explains why this is always underestimated by retailers and wholesalers and how the SKUcapture service deals with these challenges.
Request product content EASILY from suppliers
Acquiring product images, data and descriptions from your supplier base in a consistent format is a major source of pain for both retailers and their vendors.
SKUcapture is a managed service, designed around your requirements, to simplify the process of product content capture. We manage the process of requesting content from vendors, with communications and training tuned to your requirements
Source full product content with less effort
Using our easy to use platform SKUlibrary, vendors can easily provide full content, including multiple images, video, and any data attributes a retailer wishes to capture. You decide what to request.
Using our specialised blend of our processes, people and technology, large volumes of product content can be sourced both to support the initial site launch and ongoing. All this is done with little effort from our clients.
Publish complete content SEAMLESSLY
Once verification and workflow are completed in SKUlibrary products are set to a status which pushes them to your systems; this could be your ERP, PIM or ecommerce platform.
Product content is supplied in a format designed to suit your requirements, further reducing the time to get high-quality content in front of your customers. The end result is lower cost and effort for you and your suppliers of sourcing product content, and higher sales for less stress.
SUPPORTING NUTRIEN AG SOURCE PRODUCT CONTENT FROM A DIVERSE SUPPLIER BASE
In 2017 Nutrien Ag (formerly Ruralco) contacted SKUvantage to source product content from its suppliers in order to support its B2B digital strategy. The SKUcapture process was used to simplify the sourcing of product content from Nutrien Ag’s suppliers, by loading product content into SKUlibrary using a process configured to Nutrien Ag’s requirements.
This is then passed via API to Nutrien Ag’s PIM each day. The SKUvantage team provide suppliers support where necessary, reducing the effort both for them and the Nutrien Ag team.
“As part of developing our B2B digital strategy, Nutrien Ag Solutions needed to source as much content as possible from a large supplier base with a very broad spectrum of digital sophistication. After attempting this ourselves, which resulted in relatively poor compliance from suppliers and high workload for our team, we engaged SKUvantage and the SKUlibrary platform in 2017 to solve this critical requirement so that our digital strategy could move forwards.”
“The process SKUvantage provided to our suppliers through the SKUlibrary platform has really minimised the work for the Nutrien Ag team so that they can focus on other aspects of driving our digital strategy. The support provided to our suppliers has also reduced the effort for them in meeting our requirements. The results have been impressive with tens of thousands of products now being loaded onto our B2B portal with minimal effort on our part. Without the support of SKUvantage and the SKUcapture process we simply wouldn’t have been able to progress our digital objectives as quickly as we have. This has also provided a solid foundation for how to take our digital strategy to the next level.”
