Saqqara Brings Out Net Content Tool
27 June 2001, 11 am GMT
Saqqara Systems B2B content software and service providers, are introducing ContentWorks 2.0 Transformation Manager, an application that automates data transformation from varied sources into a 'product information asset' for populating e-commerce enabled catalogs and sharing with e-business partners.
The software aims to provide manufacturers and distributors with greater control over their product information and lower operating costs through automated content generation.
This automation speeds deployment of highly-detailed, differentiating e-catalogs that deliver a competitive advantage in the global Internet market space where timing is critical.
Their browser interface supports creation and management of catalog taxonomies, automated extraction of product data from information sources, automated classification of products, and automated cleansing, rationalization and enhancement of data to build rich product content
Kyle McNabb, ContentWorks product manager, explains "The browser-based interface allows product experts at any location, with no knowledge of scripting or programming languages, to create a rich product information asset that meets the requirements of any distribution channel.
Product manufacturers and distributors, such as Hagemeyer, can now create a product information asset quickly, reduce costs through automation, and increase channel loyalty by providing customers with the timely, accurate and detailed information needed to make informed product buying decisions."
Jos Van de Wiel, chief technology officer, Hagemeyer MRO4all, a B2B e-commerce European distribution service says "Offering hundreds of thousands of electrotechnical components through numerous operating companies (OpCos) in multiple languages presents significant obstacles in electronic content normalizing and distribution. We receive component information from multiple sources, in multiple languages. Some components are similar and some components are duplicates. We have to structure and aggregate this data into one normalized electronic catalog for distribution in multiple languages.
SAQQARA's ContentWorks 2.0 Transformation Manager will be critical to our success in dealing with the enormous volume of data we receive and automatically transforming it to present one streamlined B2B e-commerce catalog to our OpCos."
