The ItemMaster Brands Experience
Now brands can capture, structure, and distribute content from one point of truth
The retail world has changed
CPG companies need to adapt to the disruption of today in order to drive more sales. To impact a consumer’s shopping experience and influence their decision to buy your product, the shopping experience should feel personalized and seamless. ItemMaster’s product content management system helps you capture your target market with engaging, compelling content.
Retail has undergone a seismic shift.
The retail landscape has shifted dramatically. Mastering the digital shelf is no longer a luxury for brands who want to compete successfully in today’s world.
Today, shoppers are everywhere.
Consumers, your brand buyers, and retailer shoppers are EVERYWHERE, but are you where you need to be?
The risks have never been higher.
53% of shoppers are very unlikely to buy from a brand again after an experience with inaccurate product information.
Product content is the core of a great shopper experience
Complete package details, high-quality images, mobile images, scale images, editable and verified data, and consumer reviews are all components of best-in-class, rich content and information.
Platform capabilities delivering end-to-end fuel for brand readiness into a data-driven market
ItemMaster’s product catalog management enables you to control your product content and provide 100% Complete and Verified assets to retailers across the entire grocery marketplace. Web-based, 24×7 accessible, secure platform with no “seat” licensing restrictions. Access controls across user groups to ensure everyone has access to what they need.
Take advantage of ItemMaster’s content creation services to capture your core content. Our flexible solutions help remediate any gaps in your content, including attributes and photography. ItemMaster services take the burden off the product owner and ensures content is available for distribution both from a syndication standpoint and back into their own organization if desired.
Adding enhanced content also known as “below the fold” content to the ItemMaster platform gives product owners the ability to leverage already existing assets. The ItemMaster product content management platform provides the ability to add brand assets like rich media, marketing messages & sell copy, consumer generated content, and brand lifestyle images.
ItemMaster offers a broad (and constantly growing!) syndication network of traditional retailers, e-tailers and mobile application developers. Open syndication to the retailer ecosystem means there is no additional cost to the manufacturer for distribution; no channel or switch setup. Our syndication network takes the burden off your shoulders to track and enter data per each individual retailer’s specifications as ItemMaster manages that on your behalf. Content is distributed through the platform in up to 3 ways – manual download, scheduled feed or API. Let ItemMaster deliver your content.
Insights & Reporting
ItemMaster’s product software delivers meaningful insights that help drive growth. We help you understand the power of your content, who’s receiving it and more. ItemMaster is your only source for complete and verified dashboards for manufacturers.
ItemMaster organizes your product information to be messaged, consumed, shared, and purchased across all commerce. This means that anywhere your product content is needed, ItemMaster makes sure it is structured in a way that it can be consumed – by retailers, eTailers, shoppers, and the departments within your own organization who need your content.
