Comprehensive, attractive and timely product information plays a key role in this process.
During the presentation, we will answer the following questions:
- How can you prepare a data model and adapt it to the requirements of different markets and channels?
- How can you effectively manage the internal process and the teams involved in the product content creation process?
- Which content management systems should you use in order to succeed, shortening your time-to-market, and achieving a better quality and consistency of product presentation?
Join us for a presentation on the opportunities offered by product information management through PIM (Product Information Management) class systems.
