Your e-commerce business knows it has outgrown its product information management system when you are struggling to share information with your partners, customers, and employees; and when parts of your data are unreliable but you are unable to address the situation quickly enough.
Data not moving through the system fast enough results in several issues for your organization. You are experiencing errors in pricing across channels, you have wrong shipments and deliveries, and you do not have adequate visibility into your inventory. This could negatively impact customer satisfaction if it is only already doing so. How does your e-commerce business deliver on that increasingly popular omnichannel experience?
