How to create a BMEcat

The possibilities with CatalogExpress are endless. The process of BMEcat generation via CatalogExpress always remains the same:

Access to your product data

You import product data manually or automatically from your source systems or files. Here you can also merge data (e.g. prices, assortments and product data) from different sources. CatalogExpress combines your data automatically. No further data storage is necessary.

Select target format

You can choose BMEcat 1.2, BMEcat 2005 or BMEcat with classifications like ETIM or ECLASS as well as some other formats and structures. Of course, the independent construction of an individual structure is also possible.

Mapping data to a BMEcat target structure

Using the functions in CatalogExpress, you can perform automatic and semi-automatic mapping. Over 70 functions also help you transform data and generate new attributes and values.

Define assortment

Store a specific assortment for the BMEcat for each customer, wholesaler or industry portal. If the assortments are not static, the assortment can also be made anew with each catalog generation.

Checking the BMEcat

Afterwards you have the possibility to check the BMEcat for correctness via XSD file. You decide whether to use a standard XSD or to check against an individual schema.

BMEcat distribution

You can download the BMEcat manually, provide it automatically according to a schedule, or send it by e-mail. If the customer provides you with access to the SFTP server (as in the case of mercateo), you can also store the access data in CatalogExpress. CatalogExpress then carries out the distribution completely automatically.

After the mapping, which has to be carried out only once, your data provision can run completely automated or even partially automated in the future. Of course, you can also operate the import and export manually. A further mapping is no longer necessary, so for further customers the profile already created can be copied from another customer and be adapted.

The degree of automation you use depends on your individual requirements and needs. If you only need to process a small amount of product data at longer intervals as BMEcat, or if the product data changes little or not at all, you do not necessarily need automatic data exchange or machine-aided data provision. In this case, manual import and export via CatalogExpress (included in the standard version) is completely enough. If you have a high volume and constantly changing product data or a medium to high number of customers, you should consider automating distribution.

Features of CatalogExpress to create a BMEcat

Standard interfaces

Do you use Pimcore, Contentserv, Viamedici or a Mongo DB? Then you can already use the standard version of CatalogExpress to access the product data in these systems and databases fully automatically and dynamically. Afterwards, you can map the product data once and easily prepare it as BMEcat.


Scheduled & automated data exchange

Do you want to make your data available to your customers, industry portals or wholesalers as BMEcat in an automated and scheduled manner?

You can define via CatalogExpress when you want to provide updated product data as BMEcat. You specify a time every day, every week, every month when data should be made available from the PIM and ERP to the various target channels (industry portals/wholesalers). CatalogExpress pulls the current data from the source data at that time and delivers it to your target channels as BMEcat. Once set, you don’t have to worry about anything else when it comes to data syndication.



You need different product data in BMEcat for different customers? Your customers always receive the same BMEcat data, but need an individually agreed product assortment? Simply store your assortment in CatalogExpress as an EXCEL/XML file or use the information from PIM/ERP. CatalogExpress will then convert the corresponding data into BMEcat format.


Data checks

You are uncertain whether your BMEcat has errors? CatalogExpress already contains an XSD check schema for BMEcat 1.2. and BMEcat 2005. This allows you to identify and correct possible errors. Individual check schemas can also be stored quickly.


High performance and flexibility through cloud-ready system

You want to process millions of product data quickly? With the Cloud Ready system, that’s no problem. This means CatalogExpress always pulls the cloud resources it needs at the moment.


Headless integration

You want to seamlessly integrate the BMEcat creation with CatalogExpress into your own systems? With headless integration and the API-first approach, you can serve CatalogExpress via API and integrate it with your own systems as well as customer portals or CRM systems. Customers and sales staff continue to work in the familiar environment. You see: Creating BMEcat files has never been easier!
