Every extra second you spend on item setup, you’re losing money.

Item data management can be very frustrating. You finally source the product you need and a vendor who will ship it to you, but now you need all its data. Cue the endless pain of cleaning up spreadsheets, manually entering item data, and repeatedly fixing the same errors. It shouldn’t have to be this way.

When you look at the bottom line, it’s undeniable: Managing item data in-house isn’t just painful, it’s wasteful.

Retailers who don’t automate item setup and item data management spend millions staffing teams that do nothing else but review messy spreadsheets from vendors. The end result? Massive spending on products that don’t even make it onto shelves on time. Item setup shouldn’t take months to complete. Every second you spend on manual item setup is money you end up losing in sales.

SPS seamlessly supports your retail business, including:

– Customer-facing product descriptions (size, color, price, etc) for both online and offline channels.

– Store planning information (packaging and dimensions for planograms).

– Supply chain and shipping information (units per crate, weight).

SPS collects and inputs the data so it meets all your requirements and is formatted correctly from the start.

– We check and validate that the item data provided is complete and compliant for every product and every vendor.
