Product Data Syndication, PDS

For import and integration of the suppliers' product data, we offer a cloud-based interface in the form of a Product Data Syndication platform. The PDS enables suppliers to map, transform and syndicate data for their products to retail and e-commerce channels, mapped to the retailer's data model. This means efficient workflows for both the retailer and the suppliers to review and provide quick feedback. The solution also enables digital e-catalogues that gives business partners a self service UI to view, filter and download relevant product content.
