The complete product content solution for retailers and suppliers
For any business with an ecommerce strategy, excellent product content is critical to drive buyer engagement and ensure efficient operations. Too often, technology is the barrier to success, not the solution.
SKUlibrary was built by online retailers to make it easier to source, create, manage and distribute product content. SKUlibrary is used in our business to create product content for our clients, so we make it as fit for purpose and efficient as possible.
Product Information Management
Often technology is the barrier to managing product information effectively, rather than the solution.
SKUlibrary is the fit for purpose Product Information Management (PIM) Platform, that makes it much easier to get engaging product content in front of buyers.
SKUlibrary is designed to be intuitive for photographers, copywriters and data entry teams. It is just like editing your web site product page. It also comes pre-populated with thousands of branded grocery, liquor, pet and pharmacy products from leading suppliers.
We even use our own product, in our business!
Almost no training is required and we can get you up and running quickly, without the expense of a supporting IT team, at a much lower cost than other platforms.
Product Information Syndication
Product information management is a huge challenge for most brands. Executed poorly it leads to lower sales, higher costs and frustration for teams and buyers.
The vast majority of Australia’s leading FMCG brands use SKUlibrary to reduce the effort of giving buyers the information they need in digital channels. SKUlibrary is used as a single source of truth for product content, feeding retailers, brand sites, ecommerce platforms, fields sales tools and other marketing channels.
SKUlibrary is complemented by SKUvantage services which provide cost-effective photography, render creation, data transcription, description writing, video and barcode verification reports. This combination of technology and service results in a turnkey solution to brands to get consumers the information they need and enhance product and brand performance.
Digital Asset Management
Products can have related digital assets. You want to manage these easily, have a single source of truth and avoid the chaos of shared drives.
But doing this for both product images and non-product assets is a challenge. Different types of assets need to be treated differently, leading to multiple systems and confusion. Until now.
SKUlibrary DAM capability helps to keep related assets organised so they can be shared rapidly internally and externally, helping to drive value from your product content.
Product Lifecycle Management
Products go through various stages to get live. Moving quickly through these stages results in more time on shelf, higher sales and less discounting.
Clear actions and reporting is essential. SKUlibrary is designed to deliver simple to follow processes to minimise the time to go live, and customised reports to deal with issues quickly.
Workflow typically involves a notification of an action to be undertaken when a product reaches a certain status. These are configurable in SKUlibrary either by the client or SKUvantage.
Together with the status of samples, legal sign off, and content quality, dashboards present a clear view on where products are held up in the process and take the necessary action.
Rich Product Content Delivery
Buyers use digital channels for researching products that meet their needs. Engaging, richer content beyond the information on the packaging informs buyers and helps converts browsers to buyers.
Creating and managing this enhanced content can be a challenge. System capability, team skills and time can limit what can be presented to buyers on the product page.
SKUlibrary can extend the type of information that can be displayed on your product page and then deliver the rich content to buyers.
Source Product Content from Suppliers
Sourcing product content from suppliers is preferred to creating this yourself.
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.

Why Partner with SKUlibrary
SKUlibrary is an essential platform and service for many leading retailers by supporting them to operate their businesses efficiently in digital channels.We recognise that some retailers don’t need a new PIM but still find product content a challenge and want to explore any ways to achieve their digital ambitions.
Beyond using SKUlibrary as a PIM, SKUvantage and SKUlibrary can still assist to:
- Get more and better product content for your customers
- Save effort and time for your teams in managing product content
- Make it easier for your suppliers to give you content
By working with retailers directly, some of these opportunities are no-cost or very low-cost, yet work for the mutual benefit of the retailer and their suppliers, driving significant value for both.
Why Partner with SKUlibrary
SKUlibrary works with a broad spectrum of agencies to support their clients drive value in digital channels.It’s tough being an agency. It is highly competitive with constant disruption and always a challenge to create differentiation. One opportunity is working with partners to make your clients’ lives easier and deliver them value-adding solutions which you can manage on their behalf.
We work with various agencies in areas such as packaging design, technology consulting, product content creation and digital strategy to help their clients realise the opportunities of digital. We have numerous success stories to illustrate these trusted partnerships, including:
- Working with an agency to transform their retailer client’s digital strategy capability with less stress, by solving the product content element
- Providing a solution for an agency’s brand client to rapidly improve product content quality and make the execution of the agency designed digital brand strategy more effective
- Providing the technology to manage the agency’s product content they produced for their retailer client, so they could focus on delivering the broader digital strategy
We believe that respectful co-operation grows the pie for all parties, and we are honest if we are conflicted. There are many ways we could support agencies and their clients, either directly or without exposure to the client.
