HellermannTyton – eCatalog with 60,000 articles and awards

HellermannTyton GmbH (Tornesch) produces more than 60,000 articles on the subject of cables. The production of electronic catalogs takes up to 3 months, because the data from different source systems must be merged and qualified. The catalogs are created according to strict electronic standards (e.g. BMEcat) and classifications (e.g. ETIM and eCl@ss)

Project idea: Customer-specific electronic product catalogs at the push of a button

  • It should be possible to automatically create customer-specific electronic catalogs in various formats such as XML, XLS or CSV.
  • A smooth and fast update option for the contents is particularly important.
  • In order to meet the standard requirements specified by the wholesale trade, it is necessary to prepare data coming from two different source systems for compilation.

Solution: nexoma XS-CatalogExpress enables fast, customized catalog creation

  • With nexoma XS-CatalogExpress, the creation time for customized catalogs was reduced to 1 hour. New catalog data can be provided on a daily basis or more frequently if required.
  • The first automatically generated catalogs were sent to customers after only 2 months. The integration into other systems (merchandise management, PIM) took 6 months.
  • Flexible processing of different data formats (BMEcat, ETIM, EDIFACT PRICAT, DATANORM, etc.) is also possible.
  • Furthermore, the wholesale partners can process HellermannTyton’s product data quickly and easily in their ERP systems.
  • Smooth implementation can take place during ongoing operations.
  • Now an increased and tested product data quality is available.
