The strength of the supplier-retailer relationship has a profound effect on product sales. However, both parties sometimes find it challenging to share data on an ongoing basis. Suppliers are constantly responding to data requests from multiple retailer partners, and each retailer has unique formatting requirements that could potentially result in inaccurate and delayed product information.
To help improve the exchange of product information, Salsify has released SupplierSync, a supplier portal that helps buyers and merchandisers collect category specific attributes, marketing copy and product images from suppliers more efficiently.
Using SupplierSync, retail teams can keep all product information in one location, eliminating the need for manual sharing via email. Data from the platform can be transferred to ERP, PIM and e-Commerce platforms as needed.
The solution enables retailers to send product information requests to multiple suppliers at once, monitor progress with dashboard reporting and send one-click reminders.
Salsify helps companies across the retail supply chain improve the exchange of product information. Current users include: Energizer, Marbles: The Brain Store, Pyrex, Renckitt Benckiser, Rubbermaid and Schick.
