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

Item data management is one of the most frustrating parts of the retail business. You finally source the product you need and a vendor who will ship it to you, but now… you need to deal with all the item data.

Cue the endless pain of cleaning up spreadsheets, manually entering data, and repeatedly fixing the same errors over and over and over again. 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 spend millions on staffing teams that do nothing else but slog through 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.
