THE EASIER IT IS FOR SUPPLIERS TO GIVE YOU PRODUCT CONTENT, THE MORE YOU WILL GET
Product information is the fuel of ecommerce, for B2B and B2C. If buyers have the information they need they will buy higher priced products, with higher gross margin, returns and customer service costs are lower, and customers and colleagues are happier.
But achieving good product content has always been a challenge. It isn’t the easiest or most glamorous job, and technology has often been a hindrance, not a help. Until now.

This video 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.
The solution to easily source product content from suppliers
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.

We actually use our own product
SKUlibrary is the platform developed by SKUvantage to manage the product content production for our clients. Our photographers, editors, copywriters, and data entry teams use SKUlibrary all day. It is also used by our SKUcapture team to source product content from our clients’ suppliers.
To reduce the effort for our colleagues, we make the process as efficient and easy as possible for suppliers to follow. This results in less effort for suppliers when loading product content to SKUlibrary, meaning they are more likely to comply with requests. A win-win-win.
“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.”
“SKUvantage team have been critical to the success of our ecommerce business. Their easy to use SKUlibrary platform provided a welcome relief from using spreadsheets & shared drives to manage data & images, whilst keeping our product range organised & easy to update. The SKUcapture process has been essential in sourcing product content from suppliers & giving us capacity to source the quantity of product images & data for a successful launch.”

“People are confused about what food to feed their pet and the wealth of information online is overwhelming to the consumer. We’ve worked with SKUlibrary throughout the last year to ensure we at Real Pet Food Co. deliver clear and concise content and imagery to the consumer.
