In a rapidly evolving and increasingly volatile consumer market, your brand must be nimble and agile to stay ahead of the game. Consumers expect more than ever and can buy from nearly unlimited places, so your brand must be able to show up (and look good) at the right places and at the right time, every time. That’s why we’re launching our new Product Information Management (PIM) platform. The Image Relay PIM gives your brand one easy platform to manage all of your brand’s product content and information and deliver it quickly and accurately everywhere your customers buy.
If content is king, it’s how a company manages and delivers that content that can be the difference between winning and retaining or losing customers. There are many potential pitfalls and challenges when setting up a new product, perhaps it’s a nutritional update that slips through the cracks and isn’t translated to the retailer, or the wrong color asset is shared accidentally, or it just takes too long for your team to assemble the many details needed for an e-commerce partner. These are very human errors that can lead to increased time and costs, and ultimately missed sales and opportunities. Winning today is all about delivering, and that’s why we built our PIM platform.
With the expansion of Image Relays capabilities into Product Information Management, we are now able to help facilitate the distribution of brand assets and product information to enable faster connections and retail setup. This allows for your team to get your products set up quickly, make important changes in moments, and deliver more sales. That’s working smarter, not harder.
