Here’s how UniformMarket’s new Catalog Manager is helping 1500+ online uniform retailers keep their product catalogs up-to-date in a few clicks and save hours of manual effort. 
 
Introduction 
 
Product catalogs are crucial marketing collaterals containing detailed product information that is used by businesses to help consumers make informed buying decisions. But managing them online can be a herculean task as they need to be continuously updated with the latest product information. Be it a new product release, discontinued SKUs, or revised pricing, unless they’re updated in the catalogs, the buyers won’t know about it.  
 
At a time when digital adoption is at its peak and customers are relying on authentic, up-to-date product information at all times to make buying decisions, using manual catalog management methods can severely impact business outcomes. 
 
Reimagine catalog management with Catalog Manager 
 
In a bid to empower the 1500+ uniform retailers using UniformMarket solutions to grow their business online, we came up with Catalog Manager
 
It’s an automatic catalog sourcing software that disseminates cleaned, updated supplier catalogs from 130+ top uniform suppliers to the retailer’s website, regardless of their eCommerce platform, in a click. 
 
Uniform retailers can simply subscribe to the suppliers of their choice, and every time they release an update, the updated catalogs will be automatically pushed to their online stores. This helps save time as they will no longer have to reach out to individual suppliers,  collate product updates, and then have the sales team compile all the data into a compatible format that can be uploaded through the store backend. 
 
Catalog Manager replaces all the hassles of online catalog management with a simple click so uniform retailers can really focus on selling more & meeting their revenue goals. 

Get started with Catalog Manager in 4 simple steps 
 
Automating catalog management for your online uniform business using Catalog Manager is just as easy as it sounds. Here’s how to do it. 
 
1. Select & Subscribe: Log in to Catalog Manager using your credentials featuring 130+ uniform supplier catalogs ranging from medical, industrial FR, public safety,  corporate and more. Select the ones you want to sell in your store to start with. 

2. Choose Import Method: You can either choose to download the updated catalogs in CSV/XML/Open API formats or insert your FTP details to receive them there.

3. Map Catalog Details: Map product details with their respective fields on your eCommerce store to ensure data accuracy. For instance, “Product Name” in the catalog may mean “Item Name” on the storefront. Map them right to sync product data correctly.

4. Review & Publish: Depending upon your subscription, Catalog Manager will push updated catalogs to the store backend as and when there are updates from the supplier. Review them in your store backend and hit publish.
