WOOLWORTHS UPDATES ITS STANDARDS & POLICY FOR DIGITAL IMAGES
Following the recent relaunch of its web site, and drive to add more “click and collect” stores, Woolworths now has a major focus on improving the quality of product content on its website, to provide the information consumers need.
With the clear positive results from this reinvigorated digital strategy and the popularity of “click and collect”, this means that vendors and brands must now take digital channels much more seriously. This is great news for SKUvantage clients and any vendor who wishes to sell more of their products through digital channels by employing the industry-leading SKUvantage services.
With our experience of working with Woolworths, SKUvantage has intimate knowledge of Woolworths’ requirements around imagery and data. We now also feed content through to Woolworths automatically, making it easy for our clients’ brands to have the best possible presence on Woolworths’ digital channels.
Woolworths now requires suppliers to comply with a much more detailed style guide than previously. Woolworths also recently communicated to suppliers that it will not accept products to be ranged without images (see attachment). This means getting product content up to scratch is no longer an option.
SKUvantage has been intimately involved in the development of product content on Woolworths’ website, having photographed over 23,000 products for Woolworths over the past year. After capturing the majority of product content to support the recent re-launch of the Woolworths web site, SKUvantage will be the vendor Woolworths will turn to as ‘first port of call’ for keeping this product content maintained.
