The Client Company

Our client is a distributor of electrical products with a 15+ year operating history and a product catalog comprising of 300,000+ SKUs and 900+ manufacturer brands.

Client’s Challenges

Our client found itself in a precarious position: it had a long and stable operating history, but it started to receive a steady influx of customer complaints about inaccurate product specifications.  The volume of complaints built over a period of several years, as E-Commerce also started to drive more and more sales volume for the company.  Our client made a significant investment in building out its E-Commerce presence in 2014, but they lacked a solid data governance program to ensure that their products were up-to-date, accurate, and presented well.

Understanding that this was impacting their commercial results and customer satisfaction, our client sought a relationship with an outsourcing partner who could assist them with executing a semi-annual refresh of their product catalog, in line with their vision and specifications.

assivo's solution

Assivo spent time with our client up front to understand the state of their product catalog, the sources for their manufacturer’s product data, and the desired goals of our client. We reviewed the catalog, enriched 500 SKUs as a pilot, and drafted the key goals and rules for an ongoing data governance program to keep the product catalog enriched, refreshed, and updated. Over the course of 6 months, Assivo’s team of 20 full-time associates updated, enriched, and cleaned the entire product catalog. We removed items that were no longer available, updated product specs and SKUs, and added over 30,000 new products. Once the initial engagement was complete, we ramped down our team to 4 full-time associates who work consistently on product catalog updates for our client throughout the year, always ensuring that the data quality of the product catalog meets the standards that we laid out at the start of the engagement.
