To continuously help our merchants boost efficiency and reduce time to market, we’ve made some significant developments on our platform. Here are some of the highlights of our 2021 feature enhancements:

  • OPTIMISATIONS: Automatically manage product information for all your partners, in just a few clicks. This includes, for example, the automatic definition of your titles, by concatenating existing fields or by adding the name of the business transaction.
  • SEGMENTS: Automatic product grouping based on performances. Build your own performance-based segments or select from templates like Top 100 Revenues, Flop 100 clicks, New products … Key features to help with catalog analysis and marketing channel optimisation.
  • ADDITIONAL SOURCES: Ability to merge various data sources to create a unique and optimised catalogue. This includes stock data from other sources and the ability to import catalogues directly from Google Sheets.
  • DISTRIBUTION REPORTS: Harmonised and centralised distribution reports to automate your activity on marketplaces. Access an error analysis grid, with sorted and standardised error types and their solutions.

Partner highlights

We work to create an ecosystem at the heart of your digital strategy, thanks to a growing number of partnerships and connectors:

  • We are continuing our collaboration with Akeneo PIM (Business Partner certification) to enable you to enrich your product data and offer a qualitative shopping experience to consumers.
  • On the CMS side, we have integrated the latest version of Shopware: Shopware 6. We also continue our regular updates on Shopify, Magento, Prestashop, etc. to provide the latest versions of plugins for your e-commerce activity.

The future is calling with Insights

We have made improvements to the “Business Recommendations” feature of the INSIGHTS analytics brick – our marketplaces recommendation system. We have improved the user interface and introduced goals, so you can list your business objectives and the countries you wish to target. By combining this data with the analysis of your catalogue and products’ EAN codes, we can provide you an even more detailed recommendation of the most suitable marketplaces and markets for your products, as well as the potential turnover.
